What is the Amazon AI Conclave ?

At Amazon, we’ve been investing deeply in Artificial Intelligence for over 20 years, and many of the capabilities customers experience are driven by Machine Learning (ML). Amazon.com’s recommendations engine is driven by Machine Learning, as are the paths that optimise robotic picking routes in our fulfilment centres. Our supply chain, forecasting, and capacity planning are also informed by ML algorithms. Alexa is fuelled by Natural Language Understanding and Automated Speech Recognition deep learning; as is our drone initiative, Prime Air, and the computer vision technology in our new retail experience, Amazon Go. We have thousands of engineers at Amazon committed to machine learning and deep learning, and it’s a big part of our heritage.
