AWS re:Invent 2023 | Major Announcements

AWS re:Invent, the largest annual event organized by Amazon, continues its week in Las Vegas with some of the most important representatives of the technology sector.

Adam Selipsky, CEO of AWS, was in charge of unveiling the main launches, closely related to AI and Amazon’s commitment to the cloud and agreements with other industry giants such as Nvidia and Anthropic.

Read on as we have compiled the most relevant details.

AWS re:Invent 2023 | Recap

Cloud transformation

As mentioned above, Adam Selipsky shared his perspective on cloud transformation, highlighting innovation in data, infrastructure, AI and Machine Learning, which are helping AWS customers achieve their goals faster, exploiting untapped potential and creating a better world.

You can see all the details here:

Agreement with NVIDIA

Selipsky was joined by Jen-Hsung Huang, CEO of Nvidia, with whom he announced the expansion of AWS and his company’s partnership with initiatives such as the “first artificial intelligence supercomputer in the cloud.”

AWS will be the first cloud provider to deploy NVIDIA’s GH200 chips, due to launch in 2024, which has three times the memory of the popular H100.

Transcription platform

They have added new languages to their Amazon Transcribe product, which means detailed transcriptions in basic speech models for 100 languages and new artificial intelligence capabilities.

You can now recognize more spoken languages and enable call transcription, adding speech-to-text capabilities to your cloud applications.

Generative AI, data, and humans

Swami Sivasubramanian, Vice President of Data and AI at AWS, explored the powerful relationship between humans, data and AI.

Generative AI is increasing our productivity and creativity in previously unexplored ways while feeding off massive amounts of business data and human intelligence. Swami, therefore discovered how to use enterprise data to create differentiated generative AI applications and accelerate employee productivity within an organization.

You can watch it in the Keynote video:

AI Assistant

They have launched a chat tool called Amazon Q, which acts as an AI assistant where users can ask questions about their business using their data.

They can consult the latest company guidelines for logo usage or understand another engineer’s code to maintain an application, among many other applications.

Kuiper Project

They are building a network of low earth orbit satellites for portable broadband worldwide.

It will provide private business network services instead of just public internet.

Chips and Quantum Computing

Peter Desantis, Senior Vice President of AWS Utility Computing, continued Monday Night Live’s tradition of delving into the engineering that powers the company’s services.

He offered a more detailed look at how the unique approach and culture of innovation help create cutting-edge solutions across the spectrum without compromising performance or cost.

He also announced that they are working on a new chip that will help solve key problems in quantum computing, such as correcting errors, changing a binary code from 1 to 0, etc.

Image generation with AI

Titan Image Generator can create realistic, studio-quality images but with built-in safety barriers. It is not a standalone application or website but a tool developers can leverage to create their own model-based image generators.

You need Amazon Bedrock, and you can create images from a natural language message and change backgrounds.

S3 Express One Zone

It is the highest performance and lowest latency cloud object storage. Express One is 10x faster and has 50% lower access costs than standard S3.

Pinterest, for example, has seen 10x faster write speeds and 40% lower costs for AI workloads.

Graviton4 and R8g instances for EC2

They are the fourth iteration of AWS’ own chipset, which has 30% more cores than the previous version and promises to be 40% faster for database applications.
