The availability of Shutterstock.AI's data on AWS Data Exchange will allow 
customers, from tech startups to industrial giants, to train computer vision 
models at scale with precision, advancing their computer vision technology.

"Customers need broad content sets and quality metadata to train computer 
vision models with confidence and efficiency," said Chris Casey, Worldwide Head 
of Business Development, AWS Data Exchange, Amazon Web Services, Inc. 
"Shutterstock.AI has one of the largest libraries of assets available in this 
space with notable variety and metadata. We're excited that AWS customers at 
every level of machine learning maturity can now innovate using 
Shutterstock.AI's data on AWS Data Exchange."

Shutterstock.AI will initially offer a series of training datasets to AWS 
customers on AWS Data Exchange. The datasets include collections of images and 
3D models from Shutterstock.AI's library of 400 million visual assets, along 
with metadata backed by rigorous human and AI review. The datasets span 
multiple industry categories, and have been curated to align with some of the 
most common computer vision applications in ecommerce, travel and tourism, 
self-driving cars, and consumer electronics.

"Computer vision is a powerful new technology with huge growth potential," said 
Stan Pavlovsky, Chief Executive Officer at Shutterstock. "We are excited to 
partner with AWS to develop products that support companies creating solutions 
for autonomous vehicles, real-time content moderation, and more, while 
leveraging AWS's data delivery capabilities to significantly expand the market 
for this content."

In addition to offering products on AWS Data Exchange, Shutterstock.AI content 
will be used to power Amazon's own computer vision projects, including Amazon 
Rekognition ( 
), a solution that simplifies adding image and video analysis to applications 
using proven, highly scalable, deep learning technology that requires no prior 
machine learning expertise.

Shutterstock.AI will work with AWS to provide this data to new customers, as 
well as enabling existing Shutterstock.AI clients to use AWS Data Exchange for 
streamlining their existing data delivery, ingestion, and billing.

Over time, Shutterstock.AI and AWS will continually expand the selection of 
datasets offered on AWS Data Exchange in response to customer feedback and 
demand. Shutterstock.AI will also work to deliver additional value to the 
computer vision community, producing thought leadership for practitioners, 
conducting research, and developing products for expanded computer vision
