Exploring Cinematic Treasures with Amazon Titan Multimodal Embeddings

Voiced by Amazon Polly


In the vast realm of cinematic experiences, finding that one movie you vaguely remember but can’t quite recall the name of is a common predicament. Perhaps you remember specific scenes, such as a man with a hat amidst flames, a woman driving a pink car, or a raccoon on an alien planet, but the movie title remains elusive. AWS has introduced a groundbreaking solution: Amazon Titan Multimodal Embeddings. This advanced technology combines textual and visual data to create rich representations of multimedia content, revolutionizing how we search for movies.

Understanding Multimodal Embeddings

Amazon Titan Multimodal Embeddings harnesses the power of both textual and visual data to generate embeddings—numeric representations that capture semantic meaning and relationships between diverse types of data. Amazon Titan enables sophisticated search capabilities that transcend traditional keyword-based queries by encoding movie titles and posters into embeddings.

The Problem: Lost in Movie Limbo

Imagine you watched a captivating movie but failed to jot down its title. All you remember is a distinct scene—a man wearing a hat against a backdrop of flames. Without the title, finding the movie amidst thousands of options seems daunting. This is where Amazon Titan comes to the rescue.

Implementation with MovieLens Data

To demonstrate the power of Amazon Titan, we utilized data from MovieLens, a platform that provides movie recommendations based on user preferences. We collected information on well-known movies released in 2024, including titles, posters, genres, and plot summaries.

Generating Embeddings

We created embeddings for movie posters and titles using the Amazon Bedrock API. The API converts images and text into embeddings, capturing their semantic meaning and visual characteristics. We obtained comprehensive representations of each movie by combining textual and visual embeddings.

Building the Search Index

We leveraged AWS OpenSearch, a fully managed search and analytics suite, to index the embeddings. The search index stores the embeddings and metadata, such as movie titles, plot summaries, and genres. By enabling KNN search, we can retrieve the most similar movies based on a given query vector.

Retrieving Results

To retrieve movie recommendations, we first convert the search query into an embedding vector using the same API to generate embeddings. We then query the search index using the KNN algorithm to find movies with similar embeddings. The results include movie titles, posters, IMDb IDs, and plot summaries, providing users with comprehensive information to make informed choices.

Now, with the query function in place, we can execute searches based on textual descriptions and retrieve relevant movie recommendations. This enhanced search functionality further improves the movie discovery experience for users.


AWS Titan Multimodal Embeddings provide precise, rich embeddings by fusing textual and visual data, revolutionizing the movie finding process. This provides a smooth and user-friendly movie search experience by enabling users to locate films based on hazy memories of scenes, language, or imagery. Titan’s cutting-edge capabilities revolutionize how we find and enjoy cinematic material by making the process of rediscovering films accurate and straightforward.
