AI startup Anthropic challenges OpenAI and Google with new chatbot| GuyWhoKnowsThings

He Anthropic, a high-profile artificial intelligence startup launched a new version of its chatbot Claude on Monday, saying it outperforms other leading chatbots in a variety of standard benchmark tests, including systems from Google and OpenAI.

Dario Amodei, CEO and co-founder of Anthropic, said the new technology, called Claude 3 Opus, was particularly useful when analyzing scientific data or generating computer code.

Anthropic is one of a small group of companies at the forefront of generative AI, technology that instantly creates text, images and sounds. Dr. Amodei and other Anthropic founders helped pioneer the technology while working as researchers at OpenAI, the startup that launched the generative AI boom in late 2022 with the launch of the ChatGPT chatbot.

Chatbots like ChatGPT can answer questions, write term papers, generate small computer programs, and more. They can also generate false or misleading information, as people do.

When OpenAI launched a new version of its technology called GPT-4 Last spring, it was widely considered the most powerful chatbot technology used by both consumers and businesses. Google recently introduced a comparable technology called Gemini.

But Major AI Companies Have Been Distracted a controversy after other. They say the computer chips needed to build AI are in short supply. and they face countless demands for the way they collect digital data, another essential ingredient for the creation of AI (The New York Times has sued Microsoft and OpenAI for the use of copyrighted works).

Still, technology continues to improve at a remarkable rate.

Anthropic claims that its Claude 3 Opus technology outperforms both GPT-4 and Gemini in math problem solving, computer coding, general knowledge, and other areas.

Claude 3 Opus will be available starting Monday for consumers who pay $20 a month for a subscription. A less powerful version, called Claude 3 Sonnet, is available for free.

The company allows businesses to create their own chatbots and other services using Opus and Sonnet technologies.

Both versions of the technology can respond to both images and text. They can analyze a flowchart, for example, or solve a mathematical problem that includes diagrams and graphs.

But technology cannot generate images. Google recently suspended Gemini's ability to generate human faces after he produced images showing people of color in World War II German military uniforms.
