Amazon Kinesis Firehole 可以先轉換再進 S3 了...

前陣子 Amazon Kinesis Firehole 推出來的新功能,可以轉完後再寫進 Amazon S3 (或是其他地方):「Amazon Kinesis Firehose can now prepare and transform streaming data before loading it to data stores」。 文件是「Amazon Kinesis Firehose Data Transformation」這份,開頭有說明是透過 Lambda 做到的: When you enable Firehose data transformation, Firehose buffers incoming data … Continue reading

Amazon Rekognition:圖片辨識 API

從 Google 的 Vision API,到 Microsoft 的 Computer Vision API (參考「微軟也推出圖片辨識的 API 了」),AWS 也推出類似的服務了:「Amazon Rekognition – Image Detection and Recognition Powered by Deep Learning」。 與其他兩家都是類似的方式,丟圖進去然後用系統已經 train 好的資料給你分析結果... 然後依照次數算錢。 有種算是補產品線的感覺啦...
