HOW AWS APPLIES DATA SCIENCE IN PROFESSIONAL SPORTS

The world’s best sports organizations are using AWS to build data-driven solutions and reinvent the way sports are watched, played, and managed. AWS provides cloud services that are at the core of sports innovation, athlete optimization, and epic fandom. Machine learning (ML) is producing advanced stats like NFL’s Next Gen Stats, high-performance computing (HPC) is redesigning F1 race cars and America’s Cup boats, organizations like NASCAR are using artificial intelligence (AI) services to automatically tag and categorize archives, and Internet of Things (IoT) is connecting sensors from the field and track to deliver real-time data. Whether it's predicting the probability of a catch in real-time, or forecasting ticket sales after a winning season, technology is changing the game.

Using Data Centric AI in Computer Vision at Schiphol

Computer vision and deep learning are used at Schiphol to get insights in the processes that are needed to prepare a plane for take-off. We have cameras aimed at parked planes which are used to detect in real-time the execution of the so-called turnaround process which is often a source of delay. Using real-time alerts and insights from historical data, this solution enables Schiphol to discover issues in the turnaround process. In this interview we will discuss the value of data centric AI and how we use it to continuously improve our models.

Growing your DevOps Mindset

In this session, I will talk about what a DevOps MindSet is. How to recognize fears and counter-productive behavior and give you some tips and insights on how to start growing a DevOps Mindset for yourself and your colleagues.

Growing your DevOps Mindset

Practicing DevOps successfully requires knowledge of hard skill areas such as continuous delivery and automated testing. But even if you have all these tools in place, you are not necessarily successful. And why is that? In most cases, the people are not in the right "state" or mindset, to actually use these new practices and tools. Fear of failure, of speaking up, motivation and drive are all factors that play an important role. Creating a culture where people show courage, work on team building, practice DevOps leadership and have a continuous improvement mindset is hard but extremely important. In this session, I will talk about what a DevOps MindSet is. How to recognize fears and counter-productive behavior and give you some tips and insights on how to start growing a DevOps Mindset for yourself and your colleagues.

Contemplating reliability, why less can be more.

Intuitively, we want to create good applications whose reliability is pushed to the maximum. What we tend to overlook is the hidden drawbacks of aiming for an overly high reliability, like mental stress during an outage and hesitance towards rapid feature development. Accepting that failures may occur takes off stress from DevOps teams and allows them to focus on what really matters for the end-users. In this talk, we’ll discuss an outline for a framework on how much failure DevOps teams should reasonably expect using error budgets. While technical errors may abound, user impact may be negligible, so keeping an eye on end-user impact is of the essence. This will show us how severe an incident really is and help us stay sane during “unimportant” incidents. Moreover, when reliability is surpassing expectations, we will learn that we can allow for more “risky business” and innovate fastly, improving on customer experience in another way.
