The last decade has seen a huge shift from working locally on a PC or laptop to working in the cloud. The largest cloud of all is Amazon Web Services, AWS, with hundreds of tools for working with data and AI.

In this session, you'll learn how to get started using AWS via a Python interface and the boto3 package. You'll upload data to the S3 storage cloud, use the Rekognition AI image detection service, and build an AI pipeline that sends you text messages with the SNS service.
