Knowledge Bases for Amazon Bedrock allows you to connect foundation models (FMs) to internal company data sources to deliver more relevant, context-specific, and accurate responses. Knowledge Bases (KB) now provides a real-time, zero-setup, and low-cost method to securely chat with single documents. 

With Knowledge Bases, you can now securely ask questions of your data without needing to setup a vector database. To get started, simply drag and drop a file (such as a PDF) from your desktop, or indicate the S3 file path, and immediately start chatting with your data. The data you provide is never stored, and you can ask questions of varying granularity, from general Q&A ("what is the return policy for appliances?") or summarizing information ("what are the key takeaways from chapters 1 and 2?").

This capability is offered at no additional cost — you only pay for model usage, making it a cost-effective offering for enterprises of all sizes. Knowledge Bases for Amazon Bedrock is available in the US East (N. Virginia) and US West (Oregon) AWS Regions, and you can access it through the Knowledge Bases console or the RetrieveAndGenerate API. To learn more, refer to the Knowledge Bases for Amazon Bedrock documentation and to get started, visit the Amazon Bedrock console.
