Before AWS re:Invent opened today, Amazon Web Services Inc. held a Sports In Action Showcase, which included a sports panel with three AWS executives who outlined how the company is working with sports organizations.
Thanksgiving has passed in the U.S., so it’s on to the December holiday season — but before we can deck the halls and jingle some bells, an important event is coming up: AWS re:Invent 2023. This upcoming week, an estimated 60,000-plus people will descend upon Las Vegas to check out the latest and greatest from the cloud computing leader.
The 11th annual Amazon Web Services re:Invent is now in the books. This was the first fully attended re:Invent since the pandemic — 2021 had a capped audience — and I was curious to see how well-attended the event would be. The “about re:Invent” post, written prior to the start of the show, claimed “over 50,000,” but I heard that it may have been as high as 70,000, which is at pre-pandemic levels.
One of the major focus areas for Amazon Web Services Inc.‘s 11th annual re:Invent conference this week is machine learning and artificial intelligence, and that focus comes as businesses are looking to use the technologies to analyze data and transform their organizations.
