Using historical data and related causal data, Amazon Forecast will automatically train, tune, and deploy custom, private machine learning forecasting models, so that customers can be more confident that they'll provide the right customer experience while optimising their spend.

"Reinforcement Learning is one of the technologies that are used to make self-driving cars a reality; the AWS DeepRacer is the ideal vehicle (so to speak) for you to go hands-on and learn all about it". The fastest times advanced to the final where Rick Fish, co-founder of Jigsaw XYZ, from London, England, emerged victorious, taking the DRL Cup with a winning lap time of 51:50.

VMware is not only offering the VMware Cloud on AWS Outposts option, it's also building integration points into its other products that will support the new form of infrastructure, Gelsinger said on stage.

A lot of customers are talking about data lakes because they understand that it is useful to remove siloes and have all of their data reside in a central place where they can apply analytics and machine learning.

"It's no secret that AWS wants to rule the IT world, and this is one more step in that direction", said Lee Doyle, principal analyst at Doyle Research.

"When I first heard the announcement about AWS DeepRacer in the keynote, I was totally pumped and thought it was a great way to get people interested and started in reinforcement learning". The whole experience was good fun, and I haven't even begun to scratch the surface in terms of the service's capabilities. "We're ramping up volume production and you will be able to buy one of your very own very soon", explains chief evangelist at AWS, Jeff Barr. To find out more about the DeepRacer League, visit

Using the new AWS-Optimized TensorFlow and P3dn instances, developers can now train the popular ResNet-50 model in only 14 minutes, the fastest time recorded, and 50 percent faster than the previous best time.

Amazon Managed Blockchain makes it cost-effective for customers to create and manage secure blockchain networks that can scale to support thousands of applications running millions of transactions.

Thirteen new machine learning capabilities and services across all layers in the machine learning stack are now available to developers. Natively built for all EC2 workloads, VMware Cloud Foundation for EC2 will help unify critical areas of networking, security, cloud management, data protection and application development across EC2 environments, and enable customers leverage proven data center technologies as they move native AWS environments to on-premises data center.

Despite denying any plans of entering the blockchain industry with AWS past year, Amazon has recently unveiled its Amazon Quantum Ledger Database service, which is a fully managed ledger with its own central trusted authority.

AWS Security Hub integrates with Amazon CloudWatch and AWS Lambda, allowing customers to execute automated remediation actions based on specific types of findings.
