Sina Science and Technology News in the afternoon of September 25th, Beijing time, Amazon will invest 4 billion US dollars in Anthropic, which will not only gain an important partner and cast a vote of confidence in this hot start-up company, but also help Amazon become an important member in the field of generative artificial intelligence (AI).
As part of the deal, Anthropic will transfer most of its software to Amazon Web Services data centers and use the cloud computing company's homegrown chips to train models for chatbots and other applications.
In addition to acquiring Amazon's computing power, Anthropic will also receive a capital injection that can be used to cover the huge costs of training and running large-scale AI models. Amazon will take a minority stake in Anthropic, the two companies said in a statement on Monday.
