Presentation Title:
AWS DeepLens: A New Way to Learn Machine Learning

Presentation Description:
AWS DeepLens is not a video camera...it's the world's first deep learning enabled developer kit. AWS DeepLens helps put deep learning in the hands of developers, literally, with a fully programmable video camera, tutorials, code, and pre-trained models designed to expand deep learning skills.

In this presentation, we will cover Machine Learning overview, DeepLens overview, building & training models in sagemaker, and extending a project. We will discuss exciting projects you can do with a DeepLens, including object detection, face detection, animal distinction and audience response tracking with AWS. Even more exciting, we'll talk about how you can build custom deep learning models in the cloud using Amazon SageMaker.
