We’ll get started with an overview of the AI/ML services that AWS offers, ranging from services that require no prior experience with AI/ML all the way through services that are utilized by experts in the field.
We’ll follow that with a joint presentation from Eric Lehman, Lead Data Scientist at Smith & Assocites, and David Hren, Director of Data Science at PREDICTif Solutions. Eric will provide insights into integrating analytics and data science into a 35-year-old established company, and strategies for gaining “buy-in” to bringing algorithmic & data-driven products into the everyday workflow at Smith. His presentation will also include an overview of the machine learning solution jointly developed with PREDICTif utilizing SageMaker and supporting AWS services.
David will discuss data exploration and preparation methodology, modelling, and the architecture used to aid in model consumption, as well as share his knowledge around demand forecasting use cases for manufacturing companies that leverage AWS Sagemaker and Amazon Forecast.
