EU To Launch First AI Regulations

  • by

On April 21st, the European Union will announce its first regulatory framework governing the use of artificial intelligence. The new regulations will entirely ban ‘high risk’ machine learning systems, and introduce minimum standards for other machine learning technologies, imposing penalties of €20 million, or 4% of company turnover, for breaches. A draft report of the new law, obtained by Politico, would seek to foster innovation and development of AI systems… Read More »EU To Launch First AI Regulations

Implement checkpointing with TensorFlow for Amazon SageMaker Managed Spot Training

  • by

Customers often ask us how can they lower their costs when conducting deep learning training on AWS. Training deep learning models with libraries such as TensorFlow, PyTorch, and Apache MXNet usually requires access to GPU instances, which are AWS instances types that provide access to NVIDIA GPUs with thousands of compute cores. GPU instance types can be more expensive than other Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) instance types, so… Read More »Implement checkpointing with TensorFlow for Amazon SageMaker Managed Spot Training

Estimating 3D pose for athlete tracking using 2D videos and Amazon SageMaker Studio

  • by

In preparation for the upcoming Olympic Games, Intel®, an American multinational corporation and one of the world’s largest technology companies, developed a concept around 3D Athlete Tracking (3DAT). 3DAT is a machine learning (ML) solution to create real-time digital models of athletes in competition in order to increase fan engagement during broadcasts. Intel was looking to leverage this technology for the purpose of coaching and training elite athletes. Classical computer… Read More »Estimating 3D pose for athlete tracking using 2D videos and Amazon SageMaker Studio
