AWS re:Invent Recap – Amazon Lures Developers With New Tools And APIs

AWS has gone back to its roots to strengthen the API and developer tools offerings of its cloud platform. At the recently concluded re:Invent event, the company emphasized on developer productivity through new APIs, integrated tools, and a new browser-based IDE.

Unlike the previous conferences where the focus was on enterprises, this year’s re:Invent was more about developers and less of enterprises. Though the keynotes put the spotlight on enterprise adoption, the new services and tools are squarely targeted at developers.

As expected, Amazon has added powerful AI-based services which are just an API call away. Amazon Rekognition, the computer vision service, got new capabilities in the form of video analysis which can detect and recognize faces in live streams. When combined with Amazon Kinesis Video Streams, a managed video ingestion and storage service, developers can analyze video feeds in real-time.

Amazon Translate, another AI service, uses deep learning to deliver accurate and natural sounding translations. It currently supports Arabic, Simplified Chinese, French, German, Spanish and Portuguese. Amazon Comprehend is based on advanced Natural Language Processing (NLP) techniques to identify text, key phrases, places, people, brands or events. It understands the sentiment about products or services and identifies the main topics from a library of documents. For speech to text conversion, developers can consume Amazon Transcribe, an automatic speech recognition (ASR) service that can analyze audio files stored in Amazon S3 and return a text file of the transcribed speech with time stamps.
