Swami Sivasubramanian is Vice President at AWS in charge of all Amazon AI and machine learning services. His team’s mission is “to put machine learning capabilities in the hands of every developer and data scientist.” Swami and the AWS AI and ML organization work on all aspects of machine learning, from ML frameworks (TensorFlow, Apache MXNet, and PyTorch) and infrastructure, to Amazon SageMaker (an end-to-end service for building, training, and deploying ML models in the cloud and at the edge), and finally AI services (Amazon Transcribe, Amazon Translate, Amazon Personalize, Amazon Forecast, Amazon Rekognition, Amazon Textract, Amazon Lex, Amazon Comprehend, Amazon Kendra, etc.) that make it easier for app developers to incorporate ML into their apps with no ML experience required.
Previously, Swami managed AWS’s NoSQL and big data services. He managed the engineering, product management, and operations for AWS database services that are the foundational building blocks for AWS: Amazon DynamoDB, Amazon ElastiCache (in-memory engines), Amazon QuickSight, and a few other big data services in the works.
