But what else? Did you know that Amazon has just recently opened their Machine Learning platform, Amazon Personalize, and you can create User-driven recommendations for your products?

What about Amazon Polly? This service turns text into lifelike speech, allowing you to create applications that talk, and build entirely new categories of speech-enabled product.

They've come along way from offering advice on what people also bought.

And they're not stopping there. We'll see two presentations of how Amazon allows you to create the solutions you need in the environments you know and the hosts you trust.
