Amazon rolls out Claude 3 models on Bedrock

Amazon Web Services (AWS) has announced that AI models from Anthropic will now be available on Amazon Bedrock, allowing users to test, build, and implement AI applications.

Amazon Bedrock is a managed service that allows users to build and scale generative AI (genAI) applications with foundation models.

Users will now be able to access Claude 3 models including Sonnet and Haiku to develop these genAI platforms. Opus, which Amazon said is the most powerful model in the Claude family, will be rolled out in the following weeks.

In September last year, Amazon invested $4 billion in Anthropic to increase its AI capabilities and gain a minority stake in the company.

AWS became Anthropic’s primary cloud provider, with the AI provider planning to run the majority of its workloads on the platform.

All three Claude models can process different data formats and analyse image data allowing users to understand charts, graphics, and technical diagrams, Amazon said.

The company added that the Claude models will allow users to automate tasks, create new user-facing applications, and accelerate research across a variety of sectors.

Amazon claims that all of the Claude 3 models demonstrate “near human” levels of responsiveness and have outperformed other models in reasoning, maths, and coding. It cited research from Anthropic which found that these models have lower levels of hallucinations than other models and are able to understand non-English languages.

“Our customers and partners continue to be excited by the advanced applications they can build with Claude on Amazon Bedrock, and the unmatched ability they have to quickly, securely, and responsibly deploy generative AI applications, using differentiated capabilities like knowledge bases, guardrails, and model evaluation, into production to provide new experiences for their end users,” said Dr. Swami Sivasubramanian, vice president of data and AI at AWS.

“The easy access to Claude on Amazon Bedrock has led many of the world’s hottest startups, leading enterprise businesses, and government organisations to choose the managed service for deploying their generative AI applications, and we look forward to this accelerating following today’s news.”
