$Amazon (AMZN.US)$ is reportedly working on a new AI chatbot, codenamed "Metis," to compete with OpenAI's ChatGPT.

$亚马逊 (AMZN.US)$据报道,正在开发一款新的人工智能聊天机器人,代号“Metis”,以与OpenAI的chatgpt概念股竞争。

What Happened: Amazon's Metis is designed to provide real-time information and automate tasks using a technique called retrieval-augmented generation, reported Business Insider, citing people familiar with the project and an internal document.


The project is powered by Amazon's internal AI model, Olympus, and is expected to offer more up-to-date responses than other chatbots.


Metis is anticipated to function as an AI agent, automating complex tasks based on existing data. Amazon is aiming to launch Metis in September, coinciding with a major Alexa event, although the timeline is subject to change. The project is being led by Amazon's AGI team, headed by Rohit Prasad, a senior vice president and head scientist at Amazon.

Metis预计将作为一种人工智能代理运行,根据现有数据自动化复杂任务。Amazon计划在9月份推出Metis,与重要的Alexa活动同时进行,但时间表可能会有所变化。该项目由Amazon的AGI团队领导,该团队由Amazon的高级副总裁兼首席科学家Rohit Prasad领导。

Amazon CEO Andy Jassy has stated that nearly every division of the company is engaged in AI projects. As a leader in cloud computing, Amazon has been developing machine learning, a form of AI, for years. Jassy recently mentioned that Amazon's AI efforts are on track to generate over $1 billion in annual revenue, with expectations to drive "tens of billions of dollars" in sales in the coming years.

Amazon首席执行官Andy Jassy表示,公司的几乎每个部门都涉足人工智能项目。作为云计算服务商的领导者,Amazon多年来一直在开发机器学习等形式的人工智能。Jassy最近提到,Amazon的人工智能业务有望创造超过10亿美元的年收入,并有希望在未来数年带来“数百亿美元” 的销售额。

Amazon did not immediately respond to Benzinga's request for comment.


Why It Matters: Amazon's push into generative AI comes after a series of strategic moves and challenges. Earlier this year, Amazon's AI chatbot, Q, faced criticism for producing inaccurate outputs, known as "hallucinations." This was attributed to a rushed launch and the use of a less proficient AI model. Amazon has since been working to improve its AI capabilities.


Earlier this year, Amazon revealed that its generative AI business has reached a "multibillion-dollar" revenue run rate. During the company's first-quarter 2024 earnings call, Jassy highlighted the robust demand for AI, with customers eager to leverage the technology to transform their businesses and enhance customer experiences.


In May, Amazon rolled out AI-powered search features to its Fire TV devices, showcasing its commitment to integrating AI across its product ecosystem. The company confirmed that its Alexa-powered AI feature would be implemented within Fire TV's search, competing with other streaming devices like $Roku Inc (ROKU.US)$'s various streaming devices and $Apple (AAPL.US)$'s Apple TV.

五月份,亚马逊推出了基于人工智能的搜索功能,将其承诺整合到其产品生态系统中。该公司确认其由Alexa驱动的人工智能功能将应用于Fire TV的搜索功能,与其他流媒体设备(如其他公司的各种流媒体设备以及苹果的Apple TV)竞争。$Roku Inc (ROKU.US)$其他各种流媒体设备$苹果 (AAPL.US)$苹果的Apple TV。
