AWS DeepLens Extensions: Build Your Own Project

Hello Participants,

AWS DeepLens provides a great opportunity to learn new technologies, such as deep learning and Internet of Things (IoT), as well as to build innovative systems that can solve real-world problems.

Our very own, Guy Ernest, wrote AWS DeepLens Extensions: Build Your Own Project that will help with the following:

  • Train a deep learning model (using Amazon SageMaker)
  • Optimize the trained model to run on the AWS DeepLens edge device
  • Develop an AWS Lambda function to load the model and use to run inference on the video stream
  • Deploy the AWS Lambda function to the AWS DeepLens device using AWS Greengrass
  • Wire the edge AWS Lambda function to the cloud to send commands and receive inference output
  • Profit

We hope this is a helpful blog to help you get started or move forward with your submission. Happy holidays!
