A Deep Dive on AWS DeepLens

Last week at the Amazon Web Services’ re:Invent conference, AWS and Intel introduced a new video cameraAWS DeepLens, that acts as an intelligent device that can run deep learning algorithms on captured images in real-time. The key difference between DeepLens and any other AI-powered camera lies in the horsepower that makes it possible to run machine learning inference models locally without ever sending the video frames to the cloud.

Developers and non-developers rushed to attend the AWS workshop on DeepLens to walk away with a device. There, they were enticed with a hot dog to perform the infamous “Hot Dog OR Not Hot Dog” experiment. I managed to attend one of the repeat sessions, and carefully ferried the device back home. Despite the jet lag setting in after a 22-hour flight, I managed to power up DeepLens, and configured it to count the number of people sitting in the living room.

This new device managed to get the attention in the midst of the myriad announcements made at AWS re:Invent, and I am confident that DeepLens will grow its fanfare to build a vibrant ecosystem of developers and ISVs — just like how Amazon Alexa did it.

As an IoT, Edge, and AI enthusiast, my imagination was captured by DeepLens almost instantly. It gave shape to many hypotheses and theories on how edge computing can become intelligent. DeepLens becomes an amazing playground to test how some of the emerging technologies such as IoT, edge computing, machine learning, and serverless computing come together to address powerful scenarios.

Based on my initial experiments, I am attempting to demystify the architecture of DeepLens. As I continue to explore the depth of DeepLens, I promise to share my findings.
