One of the products that the company will offer is called Amazon Quantum Ledger Database or QLDB.

AWS is by far the leader in the public cloud infrastructure services, which companies can rely remotely upon run the software and store the data.

The new service will let satellite operators get access to a ground station at short notice on a pay-as-you-go basis. "Today, we are giving satellite customers the ability to dynamically scale their ground station antenna use based on actual need".

AWS revealed new services, framework enhancements, and a custom chip to speed up machine learning training and inference, while reducing cost.

Starting at 1 TFLOP, developers can elastically increase or decrease the amount of inference performance, and only pay for what they use. This covers AWS' GovCloud and Secret Regions across almost every data classification.

Amazon Personalize provides this experience to customers in a fully managed service, which will build, train, and deploy custom, private personalisation and recommendation models for virtually any use case. Amazon Forecast creates accurate time-series forecasts. The service can be applied in Finance, Manufacturing, Insurance, HR & Payroll and Retail & Supply Chain.

Thirteen new machine learning capabilities and services across all layers in the machine learning stack are now available to developers.

Amazon Web Services (AWS) launched this week its Amazon Comprehend Medical machine learning service that enables healthcare professionals and developers to mine unstructured medical text and patient data, such as diagnosis, treatments, dosages, symptoms, and other signs of disease.

AWS's new robotics service, which provides a simulation platform that integrates well with SageMaker RL. These "ground stations" are basically outposts equipped with antennas and are essential to transmitting and receiving data from the thousands of satellites now orbiting our planet. Racers can also compete in virtual events and tournaments throughout the year by entering time trials on special tracks in the AWS DeepRacer simulator, available in the AWS Management Console. The company said it is piloting AWS RoboMaker with 12 universities.

Amazon reached a new milestone on Wednesday when it unveiled DeepRacer, a self-driving race vehicle that runs on artificial intelligence (AI), and launched a racing league that would pit the owners of the auto against each other. At a specially-constructed racing area in the MGM Grand Garden Arena dubbed the "AWS DeepRacer MGM Speedway", developers tested their reinforcement learning models and had their lap times with their cars recorded onto a Speedway Leaderboard. After a turn at Virginia's Center for Innovative Technology, where she worked to promote technology-based economic development, she rejoined what was to become 1105 Media in 2004, eventually managing content and production for all the company's government-focused websites.
