In a keynote address at AWS re:Invent 2023, Amazon Web Services (AWS) CEO Adam Selipsky emphasised the importance of harnessing the full potential of Generative AI while mitigating associated risks. Selipsky called for unprecedented collaborations and multi-stakeholder efforts involving technology companies, policymakers, community groups, and academia to address these challenges.

During his keynote, Selipsky unveiled a series of initiatives aimed at strengthening AWS’s Generative AI offerings. He expressed AWS’s commitment to assisting businesses in leveraging Generative AI as a “promising tool for innovation.”

One significant announcement was the strategic collaboration between AWS and chip manufacturer NVIDIA to provide new supercomputing infrastructure software and services tailored for Generative AI applications. Additionally, Selipsky introduced Amazon Q, a new generative AI-powered assistant designed for professional use.

AWS also introduced the next-generation of two AWS-designed chip families, AWS Graviton4 and AWS Trainium2, which offer advancements in price performance and energy efficiency for a wide range of customer workloads, including machine learning (ML) training and generative artificial intelligence (AI) applications.

Selipsky underscored that Generative AI represents the next frontier in artificial intelligence, poised to revolutionise various applications. However, he also drew attention to the responsible use of this technology, stating that the same capabilities that make Generative AI promising for innovation could also increase the potential for misuse.

Addressing these challenges, Selipsky stressed the necessity of collaborative efforts involving technology companies, policymakers, community groups, scientific communities, and academia. He mentioned AWS’s active participation in various groups dedicated to discussing responsible AI.

Selipsky highlighted global initiatives focused on AI safety, such as the voluntary commitments secured by the Biden administration in the United States from leading AI companies to manage risks associated with the technology. He also mentioned his participation in the AI Safety Summit with UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak, where discussions included the formation of a new AI safety institute.

In summary, Adam Selipsky’s keynote at AWS re:Invent 2023 emphasised the transformative potential of Generative AI while urging a collective effort to ensure its responsible and secure deployment.
