Talk #2: Leveraging Hugging Face on SageMaker to create NLP Models for Contract Review
Aaron Sengstacken, ML Specialist Solutions Architect @ AWS
Heiko Hotz, NLP Domain Lead, Solutions Architect for AI/ML @ AWS
Abstract: Contract review is the process of thoroughly reading a contract to understand the rights and obligations of an individual or company signing it and assessing the associated impact. It usually takes many hours, is expensive, and therefore an inefficient use of a legal professional’s time and skills. With the latest advances in NLP, machine learning models can learn to automatically extract and identify key clauses from contracts. In this demo we show how to set up and leverage such an NLP model to quickly extract key information from a contract, thus saving hundreds of hours of manual labour.
Talk #3: Address Data Pre-processing Bottleneck in Training CV models with Amazon SageMaker — Leveraging NVIDIA DALI and SageMaker Debugger
Sayon Kumar Saha, ML Specialist Solutions Architect @ AWS
Abstract: Training of computer vision (CV) models often require multi-stage heavy data pre-processing that are natively executed on the CPUs. This often becomes a bottleneck causing the expensive GPU resources to starve for data. This session discusses some best-practices to handle this and then dives into an Amazon SageMaker training example with benchmark results. A PyTorch example with RESNET models of different complexities is demonstrated to identify bottlenecks with Amazon SageMaker Debugger and compare performance gains by offloading JPEG decodings and heavy augmentations to available GPUs using NVIDIA DALI.
