Amazon CEO Andy Jassy underscored the company’s large investment in artificial intelligence during the company’s Q2 2023 earnings call on Thursday. Jassy disclosed that many generative AI projects are now being worked on by “every single one” of Amazon’s divisions.
He emphasized the crucial significance of AI throughout the entire organization while talking about the AWS infrastructure and services that can enable AI applications.
Jassy addressed generative artificial intelligence applications on the call, and he went on to explain that the firm provides infrastructure and services via AWS that can support many of these applications. However, he also emphasized how crucial AI is to the company as a whole.
Jassy also made a suggestion on possible AI-based upgrades for Alexa that might be shown during the forthcoming Amazon products event on September 20. Jassy discussed the creation of a better large language model (LLM) expressly for Alexa on a recent earnings call.
AWS notably highlighted in its official blog how it has been working to increase everyone’s access to and understanding of artificial intelligence and machine learning. Amazon is paying millions of dollars to build the technology because it believes that it can have a large positive impact on both people and businesses.
AWS has made investments over the years to democratize access to and understanding of generative AI, machine learning, and AI in general. Amazon Web Services (AWS) has been at the forefront of advancing knowledge about the role that these innovations can play in the lives of both people and organizations through announcement about the establishment of a $100 million Generative AI Innovation Centre programme.
