Amazon is cooking up a new ChatGPT competitor 

Massive online retailer and Big Tech giant Amazon has decided that there are not enough generative AI chatbots on the market. The company, according to BI, has been secretly working on a genAI chatbot designed to compete with OpenAI’s ChatGPT. 

  • Fun fact: Amazon started as an online bookseller. I guess in an alternate timeline, Barnes & Noble rules over a tech empire in its stead. 

The details: BI, citing internal documents and anonymous sources, reported that the model — codenamed “Metis” — would conversationally provide text and image answers, while also providing source links, suggesting follow-ups and generating images. 

  • Amazon also wants the model to function autonomously as an agent, for example, “turning on your lights and booking a flight for you.”

  • Amazon is targeting a tentative launch of September, around the same time it is introducing a line-up of new LLM features to its Alexa voice assistant. 

Amazon declined to provide comment on the report, saying it doesn’t comment on “rumor.” 

  • It is worth noting that as more companies strive to play LLM catch-up, the datacenters that power them are consuming a steadily growing amount of energy. 

"Technically it will work, I guess, but the question is if it's already too late," a source told BI.

🤖 AI Chatbot Sonia: Revolutionizing Therapy or Just Filling Gaps?

Sonia, a startup founded by Dustin Klebe, Lukas Wolf, and Chris Aeberli, offers an AI chatbot designed to provide mental health support via an iOS app.

Leveraging generative AI and techniques from cognitive behavioral therapy, Sonia assists users with issues like depression, anxiety, and stress for $20 per month.

Despite positive reviews, Sonia’s efficacy and ethical considerations remain debated. Critics highlight the lack of psychological backgrounds among its founders and potential biases in AI responses.

Sonia aims to fill the mental health service gap, not replace human therapists, by offering an accessible alternative for those unable to afford or access traditional therapy.
