ACT01 - Tatonka Challenge Another quirky Amazon tradition continues—the fifth annual AWS re:Invent Tatonka Challenge. Here, you’ll embark on a quest of epic proportions: Eating your way to honor through mass consumption of buffalo chicken wings (or celery for our plant-loving friends). This year, we’ll host the Tatonka Challenge at Midnight Madness as we attempt to break our 2017 Guinness World Record of the largest chicken wing eating competition. Come join us, and be a part of history! Wing eating will begin at the start of Midnight Madness.   Activity

ADT301 - Create a Serverless Web Event Pipeline Collecting events at web scale can be daunting, frustrating, and a distraction from building technology that adds value to your company's core offerings for your customers. In this session, learn how to design and deploy serverless pipelines for collecting events at web scale, such as advertising pixels, site visits, site interaction, and e-commerce. We work together to build a serverless collection pipeline utilizing Amazon Route 53, Amazon CloudFront, AWS Lambda@Edge, Amazon Kinesis Data Firehose, Elasticsearch, Amazon S3, AWS Glue, and Amazon Redshift. At the end of this session, you will understand ways you can deploy a serverless pipeline in your architectures. Builders Session Karl Bunch
ADT302 - Democratize Data Preparation for Analytics & Machine Learning: A Hands-On Lab Machine learning (ML) outcomes are only as good as the data they are built upon. Preparing data for ML is time consuming and cumbersome; “data wrangling” for analytics can consume over 80% of project effort. ML Wrangling Assistant, based on Trifacta running on AWS, streamlines ML applications so teams can focus on the work that matters—creating accurate predictions that improve products, services, and organizational efficiency. In this lab, we cover one of two data preparation use cases. Marketing Analytics analyzes web ads by cleaning and transforming ecommerce transactions in a relational table combined to a clickstream semi-structured log file. Cross-Sell Analytics explores, structures, standardizes, and combines multiple file types (CSV, JSON, Excel) to create a single, consistent view of customers. Final outputs are the categorical features and attributes to train, test, and validate the data sets required by Amazon SageMaker to perform ML modeling. Builders Session Madhu Raman

ADT303 - ML for Real-Time Self-Service Trend Detection & Root Cause Analysis: A Hands-On Lab Business intelligence (BI) has been a manual, static process. Analysts and engineers must anticipate the right questions, monitor the right metrics, create dashboards, apply calculations, verify and validate results, and repeat the process—which means slow, reactive insights and dangerous blind spots across business operations. In this session, get hands-on with a range of datasets across use cases like product and customer experience analytics from ecommerce, web analytics, telco, ad tech, gaming, ride sharing, and IoT manufacturing. Learn how a new class of self-learning AI/ML tools is enabling autonomous analytics with trend and root cause detection services in real time. Anodot's SaaS analytics platform offers a simple self-service model with no data science expertise required, powered by AWS, Amazon Kinesis, and Amazon Redshift. Builders Session Madhu Raman

ADT401 - Real-Time Web Analytics with Amazon Kinesis Data Analytics Knowing what users are doing on your websites in real time provides insights you can act on without waiting for delayed batch processing of clickstream data. Watching the immediate impact on user behavior after new releases, detecting and responding to anomalies, situational awareness, and evaluating trends are all benefits of real-time website analytics. In this workshop, we build a cost-optimized platform to capture web beacon traffic, analyze it for interesting metrics, and display it on a customized dashboard. We start by deploying the Web Analytics Solution Accelerator, then once the core is complete, we extend their solution to capture new and interesting metrics, process those with Amazon Kinesis Analytics, and display new graphs on their custom dashboard. Participants come away with a fully functional system for capturing, analyzing, and displaying valuable website metrics in real time. Workshop Luke Youngblood

AIM204-S - Smarter Event-Driven Edge with Amazon SageMaker & Project Flogo A single device can produce thousands of events every second. In traditional implementations, all data is transmitted back to a server or gateway for scoring by a machine learning (ML) model. This data is also stored in a data repository for later use by data scientists. In this session, we explore data science techniques for dealing with time series data leveraging Amazon SageMaker. We also look at modeling applications using deterministic rules with streaming pipelines for data prep, and model inferencing using deep learning frameworks directly onto edge devices or onto AWS Lambda using Project Flogo, an open-source event-driven framework. This session is brought to you by AWS partner, TIBCO Software Inc.

AIM311 - Machine Learning and Predictive Quality Management From refined products to heavy crude, Four-Path Ultrasonic Flow Meters offers the capability to minimize measurement uncertainty of liquid hydrocarbons. Attendees work to build a machine learning (ML) predictive quality management (PQM) solution on AWS to proactively predict the health of the ultrasonic flow meters. This is done using the ML Data Readiness Package based on KNIME, from AWS Marketplace. Another PQM example for attendees to explore uses features extracted from motor current measured with a current probe and an oscilloscope on two phases measured under different speeds, load moments, and load forces. ML is used to proactively classify whether the motor has intact or defective components. A third PQM example involves using raw process sensor data from a hydraulic test rig with a primary working and a secondary cooling-filtration circuit, connected via the oil tank. They then use ML on AWS to proactively predict the cooler condition, hydraulic accumulator condition, internal pump leakage condition, and valve condition.

Whatever you call it, there is no doubting the practical value of a device that is capable of translating any language into another. In this workshop, learn how to build a babel fish app that recognizes voice and converts it to text (speech-to-text), translates the text to a language of your choice, and converts translated text to synthesized speech (text-to-speech).

ALX330-R - [REPEAT] Automate Your Alexa Lambda Function Deployment Workflows Using AWS CodeCommit Deploying a new version of your Alexa Skill Lambda function is always a risk. For example, you risk introducing an error in your code or a human error in the deployment process. In this talk, we show you how to minimize these risks. First, we show you how to automate your deployment workflow, from the commit of the change in your source code repository to the deployment of the Lambda function. We then show you how to automatically test your code deployment and, when the test passes, to progressively shift Alexa customers' traffic from the old version of your Lambda function to the new version. This enables you to quickly roll back your deployment in the unlikely case that you introduced a bug in the new version. Chalk Talk Sebastien Stormacq
