Anthropic Launches Chatbot To Rival ChatGPT and Google Bard

1 month ago 31

The long line of Artificial Intelligence (AI) chatbots is growing stealthily with Anthropic notably adding a new one to the list.

Anthropic Launches Claude 3 With New Features

On Monday, Google-backed AI company Anthropic released a new chatbot dubbed Claude 3. The company touted the generative AI tool which comes with a suite of AI models as the fastest and most powerful yet. The tools are referred to as Claude 3 Opus, Sonnet, and Haiku. Markedly, this comes a few days after Mistral released its chatbot called Le Chat Mistral.

Of the three AI tools, Anthropic claims that Claude 3 Opus outperformed OpenAI’s premium version GPT-4 and even Google’s Gemini Ultra. It gave this judgment based on industry benchmark tests like undergraduate-level knowledge, graduate-level reasoning, and basic mathematics. 

Also, Anthropic claims that the new chatbot is capable of summarising up to 200,000 words. This ability was compared to ChatGPT which can only do about 3,000 words at a go. In a similar move, Mistral highlighted that its new chatbot goes as far as understanding questions that contain up to 20,000 words in English, comparing it with GPT-4 Turbo.

Upload of images, charts, video uploads, documents, and other types of unstructured data for analysis and answers are possible on the new Anthropic chatbot, a first of its kind in generative AI. 

Looking back in history, this is the first time that the company founded by ex-OpenAI research executives Daniela and Dario Amodei, is offering such multimodal support. Sonnet and Haiku are less compact models compared to Opus. They are also less expensive. While Sonnet and Opus will be available in 159 countries from the time of release, Haiku is still in the works.

A New Challenge for OpenAI

The introduction of such generative AI chatbots is an emerging competition to beat down OpenAI’s dominance and it is growing very fast. 

Even before now, Anthropic moved to secure monumental funding to build a solution that was capable of challenging OpenAI’s AI dominance. The staggering $750 million in funding, led by Menlo Ventures, was focused on propelling its valuation to an impressive $18.4 billion.

On the other hand, OpenAI had tried to go into a merger with Anthropic but the offer was turned down by Anthropic CEO Dario who cited his commitment to the company. At this point, the merger may no longer be under consideration by either of the parties involved.
