This week, Amazon held its AWS re-Invent conference at Las Vegas. The company introduced a plethora of new products that leverage powerful AI capabilities.

Among its ambitious projects is ‘DeepLens’, the “world’s first” machine learning-based camera that aims to help developers understand neural networks better.

Basing its predictions on past learning experiences, the fully programmable video camera comes built with computer vision projects and AI tutorials, and offers hands-on exploration via the physical gear.

In just 10 minutes, developers of various skill levels can educate themselves about machine learning. The ‘DeepLens’ camera lets users launch deep-learning models and test them in the real world.



Developers can build their own models from scratch through Amazon’s new ‘SageMaker’ cloud service, or start learning from the preset models provided by the company.

The ‘DeepLens’ camera is expected to ship starting 14 April 2018. Check out some pre-trained systems and preorder your ‘DeepLens’ camera via Amazon at US$249.
