According to Amazon CEO Andy Jassy, ​​there are several generative AI initiatives underway at each of the group’s companies. Through its network services unit, the company provides infrastructure and services that can help power many generative AI applications.

According to Jassy, ​​these AI initiatives range from things that help them be more cost-effective and streamlined in managing their operations and various businesses, to being at the heart of every customer experience they offer. According to Jassy, ​​AI affects the business of stores, online services, advertising, entertainment and devices. “It will be at the heart of our operations. It is a significant investment and focus for us,” Jassy said.

The company’s new devices event will be held on September 20, and it wouldn’t be surprising if Amazon announced some generative AI-based improvements for Alexa there.

Other companies are also investing heavily in the world of AI. For example, Apple CEO Tim Cook said that artificial intelligence and machine learning are “embedded in virtually every product we build.” Alphabet CEO Sundar Pichai called Google’s new search experience “the next big evolution in search.” Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg discussed how the company is working on “a lot of new products,” including creative tools and artificial intelligence agents, which he’s building with his LLaMA LLM.
