Amazon has announced an additional $2.75bn investment in AI start-up Anthropic as it looks to gain a foothold in the rapidly expanding industry.

Anthropic was founded by former members of ChatGPT-creator OpenAI and has already developed its own large language model, known as Claude, with similar functionality.

The firm has already been using Amazon Web Services (AWS) as its primary cloud provider for workloads including safety research and further developing its model.

Amazon invested $1.25bn in Anthropic in September, which means their total funding has now reached $4bn with the new allocation.

The firms plan to target organisations in highly regulated industries such as healthcare, the public sector, banking and insurance to adopt AI solutions in their workflows. 

“Generative AI is poised to be the most transformational technology of our time, and we believe our strategic collaboration with Anthropic will further improve our customers’ experiences, and look forward to what’s next,” said Swami Sivasubramanian, vice-president of data and AI at AWS.

Meanwhile, the White House has introduced new rules for the use of AI in government departments.

Vice-president Kamala Harris said that AI needed to be adopted “in a way that protects the public from potential harm while ensuring everyone is able to enjoy its full benefit”.

This includes checks to eliminate the possibility of bias creeping into AI systems that could influence decisions. Harris also confirmed efforts to boost transparency so the American public know when and how AI is being used.

“President Biden and I are requiring that, every year, US government agencies publish online a list of their AI systems, an assessment of the risks those systems might pose, and how those risks are being managed,” she said.

The White House has also directed federal agencies to designate a chief AI officer to oversee its implementation.

Yesterday, a think tank urged the UK government to protect jobs or risk an estimated eight million job losses that would particularly affect women and those in lower earning roles.
