📰 Breaking News: LLaMA 2 release
Meta just put out the LLaMA 2 model. The most significant aspect about putting this model out there is that anyone can use it for free, even for business purposes. (Check out the story in MIT Technology Review to learn more.)
🤖 AI Tool of the Week: Claude AI
ChatGPT's competitor, Claude, is a next-generation AI assistant that can handle a wide range of chat and text-processing jobs and is best known for having a very long context window (memory). Claude AI's 100k token context window (about 75k words), which is enough "memory" to hold a book, is very helpful when working with big documents.
Claude AI is free (at least for the time being) for personal use, but it also offers enterprise solutions and integrates with a variety of software applications, such as Slack.
An intriguing fact is that the siblings who created Anthropic, the firm behind Claude AI, both used to work for OpenAI, a competitor of Anthropic's.
How do Claude AI and ChatGPT differ?
Claude AI has a much bigger context window than ChatGPT (both GPT-3.5 and GPT-4). Up to 8,192 tokens can be used with ChatGPT Plus (GPT-4). Keep in mind that OpenAI has a version that can handle 32K tokens, but ChatGPT doesn't use it. This is a lot less than the 100k tokens that Claude AI can handle. Claude AI is only available in the US and UK right now, but unlike ChatGPT, it lets you browse with a VPN!
An important difference between Claude AI and many other LLM models including OpenAI’s GPT models, is that Anthropic trained Claude using a technique called "Constitutional AI," which was created by researchers at Anthropic. The goal of this technique is to create AI systems that are aligned with human values and goals from the start (it can learn and improve without human feedback). Anthropic drew inspiration for Claude's constitution from the United Nations Declaration of Human Rights, trust and safety best practices, and the principles proposed by other research laboratories.
