Cloud AI Challenge with SAP HANA and Amazon SageMaker

In this Challenge we’re going to teach you how to bring together two big tools in the space of Data Science, Machine Learning and Big Data Analytics and get them to play together nicely.

With SAP HANA and Amazon SageMaker, you'll learn how to load a dataset, train a machine learning model and how to query data from a Tensorflow Serving model. We think you'll be impressed by how simple it is.

Do the quick survey, walk through the tutorial, then when you submit your ideas on how best to use these tools to solve real problems, you're in the running for the grand prize. All you have to do is click on each "Get Started" button below for instructions on how to enter.

Good luck!

 

Stage 1: Survey   

How much is "big" data? Let us know what you think.

Estimated time to complete: 30 seconds

 

Stage 2: Challenge Tutorial

Learn how to use cutting-edge cloud and database tools to analyze data and train machine learning models.

SAP HANA is a super-fast in-memory database that lets you perform SQL queries on the data stored. Or spatial queries. Or treat it like a graph. On petabytes of data in under a second. All in one package. If it were in a box it would have racing stripes down the side.

Amazon SageMaker is an AWS service that allows you to build, train, and deploy machine learning models in the cloud which is often a time-consuming and painful activity. SageMaker makes this easy.

Throw in some Python and Tensorflow and these two tools can perform wonders.

Estimated time to complete: Approx. 1 hour

 

Stage 3: $10,000 in AWS credits for the best ideas

Whether you are brand new to these tools or a long time user, we want your ideas on how to use these tools to solve a real-world business problem.

Each idea will be judged based on

  • The originality of the idea (whether it's a new solution or approach or a different take on an existing technology)
  • The quality of argument (how well you state the problem & solution and provide relevant examples in support of the argument)
  • The clarity of your ideas and expression (whether you have used simple, clear and coherent language to express your ideas)
  • The overall presentation (how well organized & engaging the article is)

Prizes will be awarded in each of the following categories

  1. Most unique idea using an existing application
  2. Most innovative idea using something in a new way
  3. Most innovative integration
  4. Most innovative cause for good.

To enter this challenge just write up your idea with as much (or as little) supporting material as you feel you need and submit your idea as an article to the SAP HANA and Amazon SageMaker contest section as an article.

Estimated time to complete: as long as you want!

Team Leader: "OK team, we all just read The Code Project Visionary. Since I am an expert now, and the consultant agrees with what I say, we are going to do DevOps. DevOps is clearly the one ring to rule them all. We need to ignore everything else as it is all noise and substandard practices and process. Here is our vision -

1) Right now we have these dev teams and ops teams and they just don't work together. DevOps will fix it.

2) Our end game solution is that we are going to have dev teams, ops teams, and DevOps teams. Great work all!!"

Comment from the back: "Hey, what about security?!"

Team Leader: "OK team, we just learned that security is important today. Since I'm an expert now, and the consultant agrees with what I say, we are going to do DevSecOps. Security is the most important thing so we have to optimize everything around security and elevate it. Because that's what DevSecOps is all about. Security.

We are going to have dev teams, ops teams, DevOps teams, and Security teams from now on... but we are totally pushing the envelope here!"

Quality Manager: "Wait, what about quality? Quality is most important! "

Team Leader: "OK team, .....DevSecQuaOps..., ah screw this, I'm going into sales!"

I am a self taught addict which had no idea how to start up a pc running Windows '95 back in 1995. The thrill of learning how to accomplish this was out-worldly. Now, today, I still don't know anything about nothing but the thrill on any accomplishment achieved is still out-worldly!

Born in Hungary, got my first computer at age 12 (C64 with tape and joystick). Also got a book with it about 6502 assembly, that on its back has a motto, said 'Try yourself!'. I believe this is my beginning...

Started to learn - formally - in connection to mathematics an physics, by writing basic and assembly programs demoing theorems and experiments.

After moving to Israel learned two years in college and got a software engineering degree, I still have somewhere...

Since 1997 I do development for living. I used 286 assembly, COBOL, C/C++, Magic, Pascal, Visual Basic, C#, JavaScript, HTML, CSS, PHP, ASP, ASP.NET, C# and some more buzzes.

Since 2005 I have to find spare time after kids go bed, which means can't sleep to much, but much happier this way...

Free tools I've created for you...
