AWS finally wades into blockchain with two new services

Amazon's Comprehend Medical platform now has a new HIPAA-eligible machine learning technology which enables the developers to process unstructured medical text and find out about details like a diagnosis of the patient, treatments symptoms and more.

And they want all of this without sacrificing the speed and agility of AWS. Customers can use VMware Cloud on AWS Outposts to run the infrastructure, continuing an existing partnership or extending the controls and APIs used on AWS cloud to the on-premise environment.

"AWS's extensive functionality is critical to NAB's transformation, giving us far more flexibility, empowering us to move much faster, and allowing us to rapidly scale as we expand our use of cloud technologies", said Yuri Misnik, Executive General Manager, Business Enabling Technology at National Australia Bank. Microsoft and Azure Stack users may disagree with that assessment, but at worst the announcement marked a significant step towards greater hybrid cloud acceptance from a vendor that has always been an exponent for customers to go "all-in" on its public cloud.

Amazon is diving deeper into healthcare with the launch of Amazon Comprehend Medical, a machine-learning service created to help providers and other healthcare stakeholders extract information from unstructured data in electronic health records (EHRs). This is just the beginning of our journey, and we're eager to innovate using AWS in ways that were not possible with our on-premises infrastructure. (AWS) through integration with technology, the channel and workforce diversity. Racers can also compete in virtual events and tournaments throughout the year by entering time trials on special tracks in the AWS DeepRacer simulator, available in the AWS Management Console.

Looking to compete seriously in the hybrid market, No. 4 cloud provider IBM also made a hybrid cloud power play last month with the announcement of a $34 billion acquisition Red Hat.

AWS announced a raft of machine learning services at this week's re:Invent 2018 conference in Las Vegas, including new algorithms for SageMaker.

Additionally, Managed Blockchain will be interoperable with the aforementioned product as it can replicate an immutable copy of the user's blockchain network activity into QLDB. Amazon Textract allows developers to quickly automate document workflows, processing millions of document pages in a few hours. AWS Security Hub is created to provide users with a comprehensive view of their high-priority security alerts and compliance status by aggregating, organizing, and prioritizing alerts, or findings, from multiple AWS services, such as Amazon GuardDuty, Amazon Inspector, and Amazon Macie as well as from other APN security solutions. "No data processed by the service is stored or used for training", it said.

Policies will then be consistently implemented, reducing the duplicative work of manually defining and enforcing them across a customer's security, storage, analytics, and machine learning services.

Among the other provider of the public cloud services, Amazon is also following the Google into the chip market.

Amazon Forecast is a service that generates forecasts from time series data.
