A few days ago, Amazon Web Services organized AWS re:Invent, one of the world biggest IT events, focusing on everything Amazon has to offer. Among the great amount of novelties that were announced, some of them were very interesting for us.
Amazon Web Services (AWS) re:Invent enters its eighth year in 2019 and has quickly become the leading global customer and partner conference for the cloud computing community. They talked about their new platform for content sharing and reusing, AWS Data Exchange. This exciting website allows companies to share their textual (and non-textual) data so other companies can benefit from it as well. You don’t have to worry about formats or formal inconsistencies: your engines —if they are located in AWS— can automatically ingest any of this data via APIs. As a matter of fact, a great way to help fight against “data scarcity” is sharing available data.
Apart from the improvements for companies that work with data, exciting new AWS partnerships were also announced —for example, in the sports field, projects with the US National Football League and with Formula 1—. The overall success of their partnership program with small companies (tens of thousands every year) was also highlighted.
AWS re:Invent was exciting, but soon we’ll be sharing be more exciting news from this event regarding training data, our main focus these days. Interested? Stay tuned!
