Amazon has introduced a cutting-edge suite of AI tools tailored specifically for sellers, revolutionizing the process of crafting compelling product descriptions.
The retail giant assured that these innovative capabilities will enable sellers to effortlessly generate captivating titles, enticing product details, and captivating descriptions.
Gone are the days of starting from scratch, as sellers can now effortlessly augment their existing product descriptions with the assistance of AI. These AI tools have been ingeniously developed using large language models (LLMs) that have been meticulously trained on vast volumes of data.
While Amazon remains discreet about the specifics, it is highly likely that the tech behemoth utilized its own extensive listing data to train these powerful machine learning models. Previous iterations of machine learning and deep learning techniques empowered Amazon to extract and enrich product information.
However, these latest AI capabilities are poised to catapult the e-commerce giant to greater heights. Amazon optimistically claims that its generative AI tools will empower sellers by saving them valuable time and, in turn, deliver more comprehensive product information to customers.
Tekiela, the vice president of Amazon Selection and Catalog System in a statement said, “With our new generative AI models, we can infer, improve, and enrich product knowledge at an unprecedented scale and with dramatic improvement in quality, performance, and efficiency.

“Our models learn to infer product information through the diverse sources of information, latent knowledge, and logical reasoning that they learn. For example, they can infer a table is round if specifications list a diameter or infer the collar style of a shirt from its image.”
Nevertheless, skeptics raise concerns regarding the potential dangers of deploying generative AI models on such an extensive scale. The ability of these models to fabricate false information, referred to as “hallucination,” raises valid concerns.
Furthermore, the potential exists for the AI tools to generate errors that may go unnoticed without human intervention. If incorrect product listings or descriptions are generated, Amazon could potentially face legal liabilities, particularly in cases where the usage of AI is not openly disclosed.
Earlier reports from The Information shed light on Amazon’s pilot testing of generative AI tools, specifically for content creation. The report revealed that the tool urges sellers to meticulously review the content to ensure compliance with Amazon’s stringent listing guidelines. However, the specifics regarding the LLMM employed in this novel tool remained undisclosed as the company refused to provide details when questioned.
