Since ChatGPT popularized generative AI, many new AI models, software, and hardware have emerged, making it difficult for businesses to figure out which are truly helpful and worth adopting. To help address this problem, Amazon Web Services (AWS) today launched a way to validate the helpfulness of these AI models. 

AWS' Generative AI Competency program aims to validate generative AI expertise, software, and hardware that meets the Amazon cloud unit's standards. The program's criteria include having four repeatable, proven, and real use cases, according to the press release.
