Amazon officially unveils its AI-powered image generator at AWS re:Invent 2023

Amazon has officially introduced a new image generator called Titan Image Generator, entering the realm already occupied by numerous tech giants and startups. Unveiled during a keynote at the AWS re:Invent 2023 conference, this tool is now in preview for AWS users on Bedrock, Amazon’s AI development platform. As a component of the Titan family of generative AI models, Titan image generator has the capability to generate fresh images based on textual descriptions or modify existing images.

During the presentation, Swami Sivasubramanian, VP for data and machine learning services at AWS, highlighted the model’s capacity to effortlessly change a background, such as replacing it with a rainforest, while preserving the main subject of the image. Additionally, users can employ the model to switch backgrounds seamlessly, creating diverse lifestyle images and expanding options.




Amazon asserts that the image generator underwent training on a diverse range of datasets from various domains. It can also be fine-tuned on custom datasets and includes features to address toxicity and bias. However, the specifics about the origin of these datasets and whether permission or compensation was obtained from the creators remain undisclosed by the company.

Sivasubramanian assured the audience that Amazon would defend customers accused of copyright infringement arising from images generated by Titan Image Generator, aligning with its AI indemnification policy. This assurance aims to reassure AWS customers concerned about potential issues, such as generative models producing identical copies of training examples.




Furthermore, images generated with the Titan image generator will automatically include a ‘tamper-resistant’ invisible watermark. This feature is designed to combat the proliferation of AI-generated misinformation and abusive imagery. Sivasubramanian mentioned that this watermark aligns with the voluntary commitment around AI that Amazon made with the White House in July. However, specific details about the watermarking technique and which tools, beyond Amazon’s API, can detect it remain unclear, prompting queries to Amazon for clarification.
