AWS Image Categorization Progress
By Elisabeth Cawley
This week I explored Amazon Sagemaker’s example Jupyter Notebooks. The example notebooks contain code that shows how to apply machine learning solutions by using Amazon SageMaker. I tried a few of the image classification notebooks. They require Docker containers. Docker Desktop Enterprise is a new commercial desktop offering that gives you everything you need for enterprise-ready container-based development, providing developers and IT the easiest, fastest and most secure way to deliver containerized applications from development to production.  Unfortunately our desktop has windows home and not the required windows pro or enterprise so there’s been a bit of a delay. I took the extra time to start watching a lecture series on convolutional neural nets by Dr. Fei-fei Li.  These lectures are a real pleasure. This upcoming week I’ll begin researching using image subtraction with amazon to identify ellipsoids.
