Anthropic has recently released a new model called Claude 2, which comes with several improvements. The model has received positive feedback from users for its conversational abilities, clear explanations, reduced likelihood of generating harmful outputs, and improved memory. Claude 2 also performed exceptionally well in coding, math, and reasoning tasks.
The goal of the developers is to create a friendly and capable virtual colleague or personal assistant. The Claude 2 API is available for businesses at the same price as its predecessor, Claude 1.3. Additionally, users in the United States and the United Kingdom can already access the beta chat experience.
Efforts have been made to enhance the performance and safety of Claude models. Users can now input up to 100K tokens per prompt, allowing Claude to process extensive technical documentation and generate longer documents such as memos, letters, and stories.
In terms of performance, Claude 2 has made significant improvements compared to Claude 1.3. It scored higher in coding and math tests, demonstrating its enhanced skills. Safety is also a priority, as Claude 2 exhibited double the effectiveness of providing harmless responses.
Several businesses have already started using the Claude API, with partners like Jasper and Sourcegraph leveraging its capabilities. Jasper commended Claude 2 for its compatibility with state-of-the-art models, particularly in long-form, low-latency applications. Sourcegraph incorporates Claude 2’s improved reasoning ability into their coding assistant, Cody, enabling more accurate answers and increased codebase context.
Overall, the release of Claude 2 marks advancements in performance, safety, and versatility. Users can now reap its benefits in various domains.
