Generative AI roadshow in North America with AWS and Hugging Face

In 2023, AWS announced an expanded collaboration with Hugging Face to accelerate our customers’ generative artificial intelligence (AI) journey. Hugging Face, founded in 2016, is the premier AI platform with over 500,000 open source models and more than 100,000 datasets. Over the past year, we have partnered to make it effortless to train, fine-tune, and deploy Hugging Face models using Amazon SageMaker, AWS Trainium, and AWS Inferentia. Developers using Hugging Face can now optimize performance and lower cost to bring generative AI applications to production faster.

We are happy to announce a generative AI roadshow in North America where you can meet with Hugging Face and AWS experts, learn about the latest developments in generative AI, and get hands-on experience with fine-tuning and deploying foundation models. As part of this roadshow, Julien Simon, Chief Evangelist at Hugging Face, will travel to eight AWS headquarters across North America between April and June. You can meet with Julien and AWS experts to dive deep into your use cases and learn how AWS and Hugging Face can help.

The following are the cities and dates for the 2024 roadshow:
