Talk #1: Hierarchical Forecasting with scikit-hts and Amazon SageMaker by Mani Khanuja and Farooq Sabir, Senior Solution Architects for AI/ML @ AWS

Time series forecasting is a very common and well known problem in machine learning and statistics. Most of the times, the time series data follows a hierarchical aggregation structure. For e.g. in retail, weekly sales for a SKU at a store can roll up to different geographical hierarchies at city, state or country level. In these cases we need to ensure, that the sales estimates are in agreement, when rolled up to a higher level.

In such scenarios, Hierarchical Time Series Forecasting, which is the process of generating coherent forecasts (or reconciling incoherent forecasts), allowing individual time series to be forecast individually, but preserving the relationships within the hierarchy, is used.
Many customers are either using hierarchical forecasting methods or have an upcoming use case that requires hierarchical forecasting to achieve better results. In this session, we will demonstrate, how to set up data for hierarchical forecasting, and use Prophet model to carry out forecasting using SageMaker framework and features.

Workshop: Build an AI/ML pipeline with BERT, TensorFlow and Amazon SageMaker

RSVP: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/full-day-workshop-kubeflow-bert-gpu-tensorflow-keras-sagemaker-tickets-63362929227

**Description**

In this hands-on workshop, we will build an end-to-end AI/ML pipeline for natural language processing with Amazon SageMaker.

You will learn how to:

• Ingest data into S3 using Amazon Athena and the Parquet data format
• Visualize data with pandas, matplotlib in Jupyter notebooks
• Run data bias analysis with SageMaker Clarify
• Perform feature engineering on a raw dataset using Scikit-Learn and SageMaker Processing Jobs
• Store and share features using SageMaker Feature Store
• Train and evaluate a custom BERT model using TensorFlow, Keras, and SageMaker Training Jobs
• Evaluate the model using SageMaker Processing Jobs
• Track model artifacts using Amazon SageMaker ML Lineage Tracking
• Run model bias and explainability analysis with SageMaker Clarify
• Register and version models using SageMaker Model Registry
• Deploy a model to a REST Inference Endpoint using SageMaker Endpoints
• Automate ML workflow steps by building end-to-end model pipelines using SageMaker Pipelines

**Pre-requisites**
