Amazon + Anthropic - Expanding access to safer AI with Amazon

Expanding access to safer AI with Amazon

Amazon has announced a $4 billion investment in Anthropic, a collaboration aimed at developing reliable and high-performing foundation models in the AI industry. This partnership will make Anthropic's safe and steerable AI accessible to AWS customers, thanks to Amazon Web Services' expertise in secure infrastructure.

As part of the collaboration, AWS will become Anthropic's primary cloud provider, providing access to leading compute infrastructure. This includes AWS Trainium and Inferentia chips, which will be used for model training and deployment. The goal is to combine the expertise of both companies to develop future Trainium and Inferentia technology.

The demand for Anthropic's models, particularly Claude, has led to expanded support for Amazon Bedrock. This will allow developers and engineers to incorporate generative AI capabilities into their work across Amazon's businesses. Organizations can use Claude 2 for a range of tasks, from dialogue generation to complex reasoning and instruction.

Several companies have already started building with Anthropic models on Amazon Bedrock. LexisNexis Legal & Professional is using a fine-tuned Claude 2 model for conversational search and legal drafting, while Bridgewater Associates is developing an investment analyst assistant. Lonely Planet has reduced its itinerary generation costs by 80% using Claude 2.

Both Anthropic and Amazon are committed to the safe training and deployment of advanced AI models. They are actively engaged in promoting responsible AI development and deployment through partnerships with organizations such as the Global Partnership on AI and the National Institute of Standards and Technology.

With Amazon's investment and support, Anthropic will continue to advance AI safety and research. The goal is to deliver safe AI cloud technologies to organizations worldwide. This collaboration marks an important step towards expanding access to safer AI and promoting responsible AI development.
