Amazon Web Services unveils five artificial intelligence innovations for oil, gas industry

September 28, 2023

(WO) – Amazon Web Services, Inc. (AWS) announced five generative artificial intelligence (AI) innovations, so oil and gas organizations of all sizes can build new generative AI applications, enhance employee productivity, and transform their businesses.

The announcement includes the general availability of Amazon Bedrock, a fully managed service that makes foundation models (FMs) from leading AI companies available through a single application programming interface (API).

To give customers an even greater choice of FMs, AWS also announced that Amazon Titan Embeddings model is generally available, and that Llama 2 will be available as a new model on Amazon Bedrock–making it the first fully managed service to offer Meta’s Llama 2 via an API.

For oil and gas companies that want to maximize the value their developers derive from generative AI, AWS is also announcing a new capability (available soon in preview) for Amazon CodeWhisperer, AWS’s AI-powered coding companion, that securely customizes CodeWhisperer’s code suggestions based on an oil and gas organization’s own internal codebase.

To increase the productivity of business analysts, AWS is releasing a preview of Generative Business Intelligence (BI) authoring capabilities for Amazon QuickSight, a unified BI service built for the cloud, so energy analysts can create compelling visuals, format charts, perform calculations, and more–all by simply describing what they want in natural language.

From Amazon Bedrock and Amazon Titan Embeddings to CodeWhisperer and QuickSight, these innovations add to the capabilities AWS provides customers at all layers of the generative AI stack—for organizations of all sizes and with enterprise-grade security and privacy, selection of best-in-class models, and powerful model customization capabilities.
