19:00 - 19:30 - An Introduction to the AI Services on AWS

Artificial Intelligence (AI) services on the AWS cloud bring deep learning (DL) technologies like natural language understanding (NLU), automatic speech recognition (ASR), image recognition and computer vision (CV), text-to-speech (TTS), and machine learning (ML) within reach of every developer. In this session, you will be introduced to several new AI services: Amazon Lex, to build sophisticated text and voice chatbots; Amazon Rekognition, for deep learning-based image recognition; and Amazon Polly, for turning text into lifelike speech. The opportunities to apply one or more of these DL services are nearly boundless and this session will provide a number of examples and use cases to help you get started.
