FrenchTech: "Mistral AI, Europe’s OpenAI rival, adds top LLM to Amazon Bedrock"

From The Next Web, April 3:

Amazon Bedrock, the tech giant’s platform for building generative AI applications, has added Mistral Large, the latest and most advanced Large Language Model (LLM) of Mistral AI, to its service.

The Paris-based startup released the model in February, boasting its top-tier reasoning capabilities. Mistral Large is also proficient in code, text, and mathematics. It’s fluent in five languages, including English, French, German, Spanish, and Italia.

The move follows the addition of Mistral 7B and Mixtral 8x7B on Amazon Bedrock last month, placing the startup’s LLMs next to models of heavyweights such as Meta, Anthropic, and Stability AI.

Mistral’s three models are now available to customers in France as well as the North Virginia and Oregon regions in the US....
