AWS re:Invent - Gathering Machine Learning Training Data with Amazon Mechanical Turk

By: Kevin McGee
Production Lead

AWS re:Invent is a learning conference hosted by Amazon Web Services for the global cloud computing community. The event features keynote announcements, training, certification opportunities and more than 1,000 technical sessions. This year, Radiant Solutions was provided the opportunity to give one of those technical sessions on gathering machine learning training data for satellite imagery. I gave a tech talk on how we use Amazon’s Mechanical Turk to gather massive amounts of high quality training data at scale. I described how we have Mechanical Turk workers use our crowdsourcing platform Tomnod to label DigitalGlobe’s ( satellite imagery.

Below is a video recording of the talk at re:Invent. Even with an 8:30 a.m. start time, it was well attended and many questions were asked during Q&A. Our main takeaway from this is that the field of work we are in is very interesting and valuable to many conference attendees.

Thanks for watching,

Kevin McGee
