Today we're joined by Alex Smola, Vice President and Distinguished Scientist at AWS AI.
We had the pleasure to catch up with Alex prior to the upcoming AWS Machine Learning Summit, and we covered a TON of ground in the conversation. We start by focusing on his research in the domain of deep learning on graphs, including a few examples showcasing its function, and an interesting discussion around the relationship between large language models and graphs. Next up, we discuss their focus on AutoML research and how it's the key to lowering the barrier of entry for machine learning research.
Alex also shares a bit about his work on causality and causal modeling, introducing us to the concept of Granger causality. Finally, we talk about the aforementioned ML Summit, it's exponential growth since its inception a few years ago, and what speakers he's most excited about hearing from.
You know AWS as a cloud computing technology leader, but did you realize the company offers a broad array of services and infrastructure at all three layers of the machine learning technology stack? AWS has been focused on making ML accessible to customers of all sizes and across industries, and over 100,000 of them trust AWS for machine learning and artificial intelligence services. AWS is constantly innovating across all areas of ML including infrastructure, tools on Amazon SageMaker, and AI services, such as Amazon CodeWhisperer, an AI-powered code companion that improves developer productivity by generating code recommendations based on the code and comments in an IDE. AWS also created purpose-built ML accelerators for the training (AWS Trainium) and inference (AWS Inferentia) of large language and vision models on AWS.
