In addition, Hugging Face and AWS have been collaborating in the AI field since 2021, and the expansion of this partnership will further develop their cooperative relationship.

According to Clement Delangue, CEO of Hugging Face, the company is working on developing an open source model that will compete with ChatGPT, and plans to use AWS for its AI. The two companies have had a close relationship for some time and already have over 1,000 mutual customers, but the cloud deal is not exclusive, so Hugging Face will also partner with other providers. Delangue said that it is now possible to do so.

Regarding the strategy of forming cooperative relationships with multiple AI companies, Mr. Sivasbramanian of AWS said, 'One model should not rule the world. I want developers to have a wide range of choices.' bottom. “Partnering with AWS is important and meaningful because of our commitment to democratizing machine learning and making it easier for all companies to build machine learning,” said Delangue, CEO of Hugging Face. Because it fits the vision,' he said.
