In his 2017 shareholder letter, Jeff Bezos hinted at a new wave of AWS value-add products — AI-powered APIs.
“Amazon Lex (what’s inside Alexa), Amazon Polly, and Amazon Rekognition remove the heavy lifting from natural language understanding, speech generation, and image analysis. They can be accessed with simple API calls — no machine learning expertise required. Watch this space. Much more to come.” — Jeff Bezos
