What does Culture Explore do?

In Culture Explore you can enter the name of the country and you will get basic information about that country, an image of historic architecture and some information about it. It will also have information regarding one of the most celebrated festival and an AI generated image that shows people enjoying the festival vibes.
Apart from this I have also integrated a chatbot where you can chat anything related to that country and if you are curious of some more festivals, the food, people and job they do feel free to ask it to the CultureBot.

What if I used Amazon Bedrock to develop Culture Explore?

Amazon Bedrock provide us access to foundation models using API. To develop Culture Explore I need to use Claude & Stable Diffusion model. If I were to use Amazon Bedrock I would first have to familiarize myself with the APIs and check different configurations, create a responsive UI, handle authentication and the scalability of the system. This would have consumed a lot of my time as well as energy.

How I used Amazon PartyRock to develop Culture Explore?

Amazon PartyRock is an innovative platform powered by Amazon Bedrock, a fully managed service that offers access to foundation models (FMs) from Amazon and leading AI companies.
With help of PartyRock I was easily able to setup the application without much effort and to get started all I had to do was enter the idea of what my app will do and create widgets that will perform some actions.
This gave me time to experiment with prompts and focus on improving the performance of models rather than thinking of how to implement the app.
