Amazon and Anthropic have reached a collaboration agreement that will mean the unition of its technologies dedicated to the advancement of Artificial Intelligenceas well as your experience in generative AIwith the goal of accelerating the development of the foundational models that Anthropic creates, and then making them accessible to AWS customers.
As part of this agreement, Amazon will invest a maximum of $4 billion in Anthropic, and in exchange will have a minority stake in the company. Additionally, Anthropic will use AWS Trainium and Inferentia chips to develop, train, and deploy its future foundational models. Additionally, Anthropic will collaborate with AWS on the development of future Trainium and Inferentia technologies.
AWS will become Anthropic’s primary cloud provider for mission-critical workloads. Among them, security research and the development of foundational models in the future. Anthropic also plans to run the majority of its workloads on AWS.
In the long term, Anthropic is also committed to offering AWS customers access to future generations of its foundational models. They will be able to do so through Amazon Bedrock, a fully managed AWS service that provides access to the main foundational AI models. AWS customers will also have early access to exclusive customization and model tuning features.
Amazon developers and engineers will be able to build on Anthropic models from Amazon Bedrock, incorporating generative AI capabilities into their work, optimizing existing applications, and generating new customer experiences across Amazon’s business areas. . In addition to this, and as part of their collaboration, AWS and Anthropic are investing various resources. in helping the first customers use the Claude and Claude 2 models on Amazon Bedrock.
According to Andy Jassy, CEO of Amazonin the company they feel «We have enormous respect for the Anthropic team and founding models, and we believe we can help improve many customer experiences, in the short and long term, through our deeper collaboration. Customers are pretty excited about Amazon Bedrock, AWS’s new managed service that lets businesses use multiple foundational models to build generative AI applications on top of them, as well as AWS Trainium, AWS’s AI training chip, and our Collaboration with Anthropic should help clients get even more value from these two capabilities«.
Dario Amodei, CEO and one of the founders of Anthropichighlighted that they are very happy «de use AWS Trainium chips to develop future foundational models. Since we announced our support for Amazon Bedrock in April, Claude has seen significant organic adoption by AWS customers. By significantly expanding our partnership, we can unlock new possibilities for organizations of all sizes as they deploy Anthropic’s secure, next-generation AI systems alongside AWS’s leading cloud technology.«.
