Amazon Q is a new generative AI chatbot that Amazon AWS has released with a focus on companies. Using corporate data, it may respond to inquiries, produce content, and take actions.
At the re:Invent conference on Tuesday, Amazon AWS unveiled Amazon Q, a generative AI chatbot that is similar to ChatGPT but targeted exclusively at companies. The most recent action taken by industry leader in cloud computing technology, Amazon Web Services (AWS), coincides with competitors like Microsoft and Google already incorporating generative AI technology into their own businesses.
Meanwhile, Amazon stated that the new chatbot is “designed for work that can be tailored to your business” in a blog post outlining the goal of its new generative AI service. By connecting to the code, data, enterprise systems, and information repositories of your organization, Amazon Q enables you to engage in dialogues, solve issues, produce content, acquire insights, and take action. Amazon Q offers workers quick access to pertinent information and guidance to help them solve problems more quickly, simplify activities, and foster creativity and innovation in the workplace.”
Amazon’s foray into artificial intelligence:
Amazon is attempting to overtake competitors like Microsoft in the artificial intelligence space. With over $10 billion invested in OpenAI, the Redmond, Washington-based corporation has placed a significant reliance on the company for its generative AI service. Following ChatGPT‘s release, search giant Google hurriedly brought its generative AI chatbot Bard to market and integrated generative AI into its other products, including YouTube, Gmail, and Google Search.
Amazon had promised to invest up to $4 billion in AI startup Anthopic, the creator of another ChatGPT rival bot, Anthropic, as part of its efforts to carve out a position for itself in the rapidly evolving AI market. It also strengthened its ties with Nvidia, the manufacturer of the majority of the chips needed to run complex language models.
