Amazon re:MARS: a glimpse into a managed machine learning future?

Thursday, August 1, 2019

In early June 2019, I traveled to Las Vegas alongside some of my Liberty IT colleagues to a debutant in the AI conference circuit: Amazon re:MARS. As Amazon exec Dave Limp explained during the opening keynote, re:MARS is the first public version of Amazon’s MARS (machine learning, automation, robotics, and space) conference. MARS is usually a private event where a few hundred scientists, creatives, and business types are hosted by Jeff Bezos.
