The past three months, it seems, have been a nonstop parade of major tech events and the new product proclamations that come with them.
One of the latest was last week’s AWS re: Invent, where Amazon announced a new suite of AI-enabled technology designed with businesses in mind.
And while these new products, features, and tools come with a host of opportunities for the developers, marketers, and others who plan to use them, they also raise a few questions. What are they designed to do? How can they help you? How do they work?
There’s also one less-official question that occurred to me as I learned of these developments. Is Amazon trying to creep into Google’s territory?
Let’s take a look at some of these AI announcements from AWS re: Devise and dig deeper into just what they mean.
