AI21 Labs is extremely proud to announce a new strategic partnership with Amazon’s Bedrock, a new service offering customers an accessible way to build generative AI-powered apps via pre-trained models.

AI21 Labs is one of a select few Large Language model providers partnering with Amazon on this exciting new service.

Customers, particularly from large organizations, often struggle with the implementation of foundation models, which can be a long and arduous process as it often requires extensive procurement, legal, information security, and technical integration efforts.

Through AI21 Labs’ partnership with Amazon, customers can bypass these processes to build and scale their own generative AI-driven applications with ease. Bedrock allows customers to seamlessly access, privately customize, integrate and consume our top-performing Jurassic-2 foundation models in their AWS environment without having to manage any infrastructure.

The Jurassic-2 series is one of the most cutting-edge foundation models available today, built to follow natural language instructions that include summarization, article and email writing, answering questions from a provided knowledge base, and more. Our models support English as well as several other languages including Spanish, French, German, Portuguese, Italian and Dutch.

Ori Goshen, AI21 Labs’ Co-CEO and Co-Founder, shared his thoughts on this partnership. “At AI21 Labs, we help businesses and developers use state-of-the-art language models with the goal of revolutionizing writing and reading experiences using generative AI and without requiring any natural language processing (NLP) expertise. We recently announced the Jurassic-2 family of models that offer best-in-class LLMs, bringing top-tier quality, flexibility, and high performance. We are excited about making Jurassic-2 models available through Amazon Bedrock because it enables developers to easily access Jurassic-2 without leaving their AWS environment and leverage the powerful generative text capabilities without worrying about managing the infrastructure. With the combination of Jurassic-2 models and Amazon Bedrock, developers can maximize the performance of language tasks while optimizing the cost thanks to the impressive zero-shot instruction-following capabilities and small footprint of Jurassic-2, and Bedrock’s cost-effective infrastructure.“

Today’s announcement further builds upon our partnership with AWS. In December, we jointly announced the integration of our models within Amazon's SageMaker platform. Jurassic-2’s availability on Bedrock now brings access to a wide range of builders who can easily consume our models through their Amazon cloud environment. We look forward to the continuation of this partnership as part of our mission to help businesses and developers revolutionize writing and reading experiences through the use of state-of-the art language models.
