EventBridge Pipes: Point-to-point plug-and-play integrations between consumers and producers. After that, it is easier to stitch many different services or data-driven applications. Link.
Single-step APIs for Amazon Comprehend: An NLP service lets users extract data from unstructured data and images. Link.
Step Function Distributed Map: Easily coordinate large-scale parallel workloads within the serverless applications. Link.
AWS re:post-integration: Without managing multiple login credentials, let the customer work the AWS management console. Source.
AWS Application Composer: To build serverless applications, it’s a low code drag-and-drop hub. Link.
Amazon Gamelift Anywhere: It’s a hosting service for the multiplayer game server to deploy their hardware in a hybrid setup. Link.
Amazon Sagemaker Data Wrangler: Reduces the time to aggregate and prepare data from weeks to minutes. This is one of the most potent updates, I think. Link.
Amazon Athena Supports Apache Spark now: With Amazon Athena for Apache spark, users get the streamlined, interactive, serverless experience of Athena. Source.
New ML Governance tool for SageMaker: It’s a machine learning service. Additionally, it includes custom permissions. Link.
Real-time Collaboration for Amazon SageMaker: It’s a fully integrated development environment (IDE) for Machine Learning that enables ML practitioners to perform every step of the machine learning workflow, from preparing data to building, training, and many other tasks in Sagemaker studio to accelerate real-time collaboration.

Auto Conversion Notebook code to production-ready jobs: While moving the notebook into production, users manually copy the snippets of code from the notebook into a script, package the hand with all its dependencies into a container, and then schedule the container to run as a job. In addition, if the job needs to be run on a schedule, they must set up, configure, and manage a continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) pipeline to automate their deployments. Link.
New EC2 Inf2 Instances: AWS Inferentia2 is the second version of the AWS Inferentia accelerator and is optimized to deploy the complex model.
Amazon QuickSight Q: supports automated data preparation to make it faster and straightforward. Link.
Amazon Omics: With the help of Omics, you can bring genomic, biological, and population health data together to generate insights and offer more personalized care with multimodal analysis. Link.
However, the main objective of this event is to make AWS and Serverless computing services better, more reliable, easier, and more secure. That’s why Amazon launched many services at the event.
