According to Jassy, the reason behind the delay on launching a Blockchain based platform was because of the lack of information they had in regards to the technology and the needs of their customers in regards to the implementation of such tech.

The designers of DeepRacer have equipped the autonomous vehicle with an artificial intelligence (AI) technique called reinforcement learning, which was inspired by how animals learn from responses to their behavior.

Outposts should be of particular interest to customers that are looking to move to the cloud but who have certain applications that will need to remain on premise for the time being, such as low-latency applications on a factory floor, or those with data residency concerns.

AWS also announced a machine learning university training and certification program with more than 30 self-service, self-paced digital courses for developers, data scientists, data platform engineers and business professionals.




The automated landing zone employs best-practices blueprints, such as configuring a multi-account structure using AWS Organisations, managing user identities and federated access with AWS Single Sign-on or Microsoft Active Directory, configuring an account factory through AWS Service Catalogue, centralising a log archive using AWS CloudTrail and AWS Config, and more. The company said that the technique could be used in industrial scenarios, such as optimizing wind turbine operations under changing weather or power demands, or prioritizing the arrivals of container ships at seaports.

CEO Andy Jassy used his re:Invent keynote in Las Vegas yesterday to talk up the depth of its cloud products compared to its rivals and how it's targeting enterprises that want more prescriptive solutions, as well as going after an old favourite target in Oracle. "The culture inside AWS is that we don't just build things... we understand what problem you want to solve and we then solve it for you".

Jonas Caino, vice president of global sales at Etix Everywhere said the news is "testament to the strength and continued growth of the data-driven marketplace". Alibaba a public cloud provider that is the popular company in China has also announced its own AI chip. Early attempts by other vendors have fallen short - unable to provide the ability to use the same APIs, the same tools, the same hardware, and the same functionality across on-premises and the cloud, therefore unable to deliver a truly consistent hybrid experience to customers. In third is Chinese internet giant Alibaba, which has 4.6 percent of the market share.

Amazon is diving deeper into healthcare with the launch of Amazon Comprehend Medical, a machine-learning service created to help providers and other healthcare stakeholders extract information from unstructured data in electronic health records (EHRs). AWS Security Hub is created to provide users with a comprehensive view of their high-priority security alerts and compliance status by aggregating, organizing, and prioritizing alerts, or findings, from multiple AWS services, such as Amazon GuardDuty, Amazon Inspector, and Amazon Macie as well as from other APN security solutions. But with AWS' new service, customers can scale their satellite use based on their need. This reduced the process time for each document from hours to second, Kass-Hout and Wood related.
