Intel@AWS re:Invent 2021 “City in the Cloud”

When: Nov. 29-Dec.10


Intel will present three track sessions during the week of Nov. 29-Dec. 3. All will be available on-demand the week of Dec. 6-10. The sessions will highlight compelling end-customer stories across different verticals utilizing AWS powered by Intel.

Title: 3DAT: Technology Leveling the Playing Field for Athletes Worldwide (Session: AIM211-S)
Intel’s 3D Athlete Tracking technology (3DAT) running on AWS scalable architecture is revolutionizing how to train, coach and scout athletes worldwide. Using artificial intelligence (AI) modeling and any camera, 3DAT can extract information about the form and motion of athletes that goes undetected by the naked eye, making biomechanics more accessible than ever. Talent scouting app AiSCOUT utilizes 3DAT to provide opportunities to amateur soccer players across the globe to be scouted using only the player’s mobile phone. This is just the beginning. Learn how to use Intel’s 3DAT Cloud SDK and API to deploy new applications.  
Intel Speaker: Jonathan Lee, director of Sports Performance Technology

Title: Engineering for Social Impact Through the Power of HPC (Session: EUC305-S)
High performance computing (HPC) in the cloud is redefining what is possible and driving positive social impact around the world. Most recently, one of the largest HPC runs in the cloud, conducted on AWS architecture and powered by Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors, has enabled open-source platform VirtualFlow to conduct drug discovery at the scale of billions of molecules. This platform plans to host the world’s largest virtual screening of drug molecules needed to accelerate cancer research.
Intel Speaker: Rebecca Weekly, vice president, general manager and senior principal engineer

Title: CoWin: 1.3 Billion Lives Safer (Session: AIM327-S)
Technology has proven to be a game-changer in helping overcome the COVID-19 crisis. The CoWin vaccination platform in India supports possibly the largest vaccination drive in mankind, protecting Indians by providing easy and democratized access to vaccines. In this session, learn how the platform at its peak scaled to more than 3.2 billion hits a day, all made possible through the scalability of the AWS Cloud and Intel Xeon Scalable processors. Hear how this project is a strong testament to the power of the collaboration of AWS, Intel, partners and customers.
Intel Speaker: Sandra Rivera, executive vice president and general manager, Datacenter and AI Group


The Intel AWS “City in the Cloud” features easy-to-navigate content “hot spots” throughout, highlighting customer case studies and partner solutions across multiple verticals (education, food/retail, healthcare and others). In addition, developers can explore the Habana AI Lab to learn about AI training with Habana® Gaudi® accelerators that power Amazon EC2 DL1 instances. Virtual meeting requests with the Habana team are also enabled on the site.
