Making Generative AI More Accessible with Amazon Bedrock

Amazon Web Services (AWS) has taken a major step forward in supporting the complex demands of enterprise use cases with the general availability of its Amazon Bedrock service. As a vital tool for generative AI, Amazon Bedrock offers a range of foundation models on its cloud platform. The service, initially introduced in April as a preview, has undergone rigorous testing and enhancements based on user feedback to ensure reliability and suitability for production-ready enterprise workloads.

Enhancing Compliance and Observability

One notable improvement in Amazon Bedrock is the addition of compliance for regulations, including the European Union’s GDPR. With GDPR compliance, AWS addresses the needs of enterprise customers to adhere to data protection regulations. Furthermore, the integration with Amazon CloudWatch provides observability and audit capabilities, enabling enterprises to monitor and log activities within the service.

Ensuring Cost Control and Performance

Cost control is another critical aspect for widespread enterprise adoption. To address this, AWS has introduced the provision throughput feature for Amazon Bedrock. With provision throughput, customers can pay for a set amount of throughput from a generative AI model, ensuring cost protections and performance levels. By specifying the required “model units” or tokens, organizations can avoid throttling issues during demand spikes and maintain predictable costs.

Amazon Titan Embeddings, a model developed by AWS, plays a key role in the general availability of Amazon Bedrock. Particularly useful for retrieval augmented generation (RAG) use cases, this model improves the accuracy of generative AI by converting words into mathematical vector representations known as embeddings. It allows for more precise retrieval of relevant document fragments and answers, enhancing the overall performance of the service.

Unlocking Developer Productivity with Amazon CodeWhisperer

In addition to the general availability of Amazon Bedrock, AWS has also unveiled new capabilities for its Amazon CodeWhisperer generative AI service. These capabilities enable enterprise users to access their own private code repositories securely, enhancing developer productivity. Unlike general coding assistants, which lack knowledge of an organization’s internal code, CodeWhisperer learns from users’ proprietary code and provides tailored recommendations and assistance.

AWS continues to prioritize the needs of enterprise customers in scaling up generative AI applications. Through services like Amazon Bedrock and Amazon CodeWhisperer, the company aims to make AI more accessible, compliant, and cost-effective for a variety of enterprise use cases.

“It’s a normal process for us to launch something in preview, testing closely with a few customers to get feedback and these are very deep interactions, so we don’t want to start with a lot of people.” – Vasi Philomin, VP and GM for Generative AI at Amazon
