Amazon's Challenge: Competing with OpenAI and Microsoft's Olympus AI

HARIDHA P587 09-Nov-2023

Amazon is presently creating state-of-the-art conversational AI software in an exciting move meant to take on companies like Microsoft and OpenAI head-to-head.

The company, Amazon, believes that this massive language model project, internally called "Olympus," will not only revolutionize its online retail platform but also enhance the capabilities of its well-known Alexa voice assistant, which is included in devices like the Echo, and offer crucial support to its Amazon Web Services (AWS) division.

Olympus will surpass the titan models from AWS.

Olympus is anticipated to surpass Amazon's current offering, the titan group of large language models that are being supplied to AWS's cloud clients, according to reports by the American media outlet The Information.

Though it's unclear exactly when Olympus will be finished and made available, Amazon plans to formally announce it in December at the latest.

The origins of this development can be found in AWS's previous endeavor with titan, which encountered setbacks and subpar performance in contrast to the language model technology that powers OpenAI's well-known ChatGPT. Given how fiercely competitive the AI market is, Amazon is committed to staying on the cutting edge.

Added Titan models

Currently, AWS only provides its users with one titan model, which is mainly used for creating applications that have search and personalization features. Two additional titan models, on the other hand, are not easily available. They are intended to help users create applications that can summarize lengthy text passages or provide text responses akin to ChatGPT.

Apart from its proprietary models, Amazon offers access to extensive language models created by other vendors, such as Anthropic.

Rohit Prasad, the head scientist for artificial general intelligence at Amazon, is in charge of Olympus development. His participation serves as further evidence of the project's importance and Amazon's dedication to staying at the forefront of AI technology.

Alibaba entered the competition using Tongyi Qianwen 2.0

Parallel to this, the Chinese tech behemoth Alibaba has released Tongyi Qianwen 2.0, the most recent version of its artificial intelligence model. Alibaba is adamant about competing in the quickly developing AI market against US giants like Amazon and Microsoft.

Alibaba claims that Tongyi Qianwen 2.0 represents a "significant advancement over its predecessor," having been unveiled in April. Generic AI apps like OpenAI's ChatGPT are built on top of large language models like Tongyi Qianwen 2.0, which have been extensively trained on enormous datasets.
