Amazon Rekognition is a video and image analysis service based on deep learning, that doesn't require any machine learning experience to use. You can use Rekognition to identify all sorts of content in an image or video, but in this session we'll be focusing on a specific use case that has been increasingly relevant during COVID-19.
This session will cover Amazon Rekognition Workplace Safety which allows users to automate Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) detection to create safer workplaces in a scalable, reliable, effective and cost effective way.
Aside from covering the capabilities of this technology, the session will also cover interesting applications for this technology and the accompanying user journeys and user experiences, so audiences will leave with some creative implementation and application ideas.
