technology Amazon is joining forces with artificial intelligence startup Anthropic
Amazon is following Microsoft and investing in an artificial intelligence startup. Why should this partnership be profitable?
After Microsoft, Amazon also signs a $1 billion agreement with an AI startup. The world’s largest online retailer will invest up to $4 billion in Anthropic, which is developing chatbot Cloud. Meanwhile, Amazon subsidiary AWS will become the central provider of cloud infrastructure for Anthropic, the companies announced.
The language models of AI chatbots like ChatGPT require a lot of computing power, which is expensive. That’s why partnerships with cloud heavyweights like Microsoft or Amazon are especially valuable for AI startups.
Tech giants, in turn, can benefit from the innovations offered by startups. Microsoft has invested in ChatGPT developer OpenAI and embedded AI software based on its technology into its products from Windows to Office.
Amazon is a leader in voice assistants with its Alexa program. Since then, the company has developed its own AI language models to make conversations with Alexa smoother and more efficient.
