Bedrock, Amazon's fully managed service for building generative AI applications, has been enhanced with support for Anthropic's Claude 3 Opus Foundation Model.

The news is that Bedrock has added Anthropic's highest capability model yet to an already large pool of leading models such as AI21 Labs' Jurassic, Cohere's Command and Embed, Meta's Llama 2, Stability AI's Stable Diffusion, as well as Amazon's own Titan models. Recently, as we covered in Amazon Updates Bedrock With Custom Model Support, Bedrock has also added the ability to import custom models, i.e proprietary models trained on privately held data. This gives the opportunity to Data scientists to build and train their own model based on a pre-existing FM and then export it to be imported into Bedrock for wider use.

A tool that allows this precise procedure is Amazon's SageMaker, which got also recently updated with support of three Llama2 model variants and two Mistral 7B variants:

  • Llama-2-13B-chat and Llama-2-70B-chat, powered by Amazon Bedrock
  • Llama-2-7b-Chat, powered by Amazon SageMaker Canvas JumpStart
  • Mistral-7B and Mistral-7B-Chat, powered by Amazon SageMaker Canvas JumpStart

Bedrock now gets Anthropic’s Claude 3 Opus, the most intelligent Claude 3 model, with best-in-market performance on highly complex tasks. Opus can do both text as well as image generation while its flexibility makes it usable in many domains such as :

  • Task automation: planning and execution of complex actions across APIs, databases, and interactive coding
  • Research: brainstorming and hypothesis generation, research review, and drug discovery
  • Strategy: advanced analysis of charts and graphs, financials and market trends, and forecasting

According to the LMSYS Chatbot Arena Leaderboard, a crowdsourced open platform using over 800,000 human pairwise comparisons to rank LLMs with the Bradley-Terry model, Opus shares the second spot in overall performance after GPT-4-Turbo-2024-04-09 in first.(model ratings in Elo-scale).


Claude 3 Opus also ranks the best between the other sibling models of Claude 3 Sonnet and Haiku.

In conclusion, Bedrock's offering FMs-as-a-service has distinct advantages; those of easy experimentation, evaluation and well private customization on your own data.
