I run AWS AI and Machine learning initiatives. For more details on Amazon AI services – please see: https://aws.amazon.com/amazon-ai/ and https://aws.amazon.com/blogs/ai/
Previously, I was the General Manager of NoSQL and some big data services in AWS. I manage the engineering, product management and operations for core AWS database services that are the foundational building blocks for AWS: DynamoDB, Amazon ElastiCache (in-memory engines), Amazon QuickSight, SimpleDB and a few other big data services in the works. I have been awarded more than 150 patents, authored around 40 referred scientific papers and journals, and participate in several academic circles and conferences.
In addition to these, I was part of the team that built several AWS Services like CloudFront, Amazon RDS, Amazon S3, Amazon’s Paxos based lock service, original Amazon Dynamo etc. I was also one of the main authors for Amazon Dynamo paper (http://bit.ly/1mDs0Yh) along with Werner Vogels. Amazon Dynamo now is the foundation for many other NoSQL systems like Riak, Cassandra and Voldemort.
