Anthropic's Claude 3: An AI Chatbot Outperforming GPT-4?

It's a new dawn in the AI world as Anthropic, an AI startup backed by Google, unveils Claude 3, the latest version of its GenAI tech. Anthropic confidently asserts that this AI chatbot outperforms OpenAI's GPT-4 in terms of performance.

Claude 3 is a family of models with increased capabilities in analysis and forecasting. It also claims to perform better on specific benchmarks compared to models like ChatGPT, GPT-4, and Google's Gemini 1.0 Ultra. The new kid on the block, Claude 3, is Anthropic's first multimodal GenAI, meaning it can analyse both text and images, a feature similar to some versions of GPT-4 and Gemini.

Anthropic has, however, disabled the models from identifying people, a move likely influenced by ethical and legal considerations. The company also admits that Claude 3 struggles with tasks involving spatial reasoning and object counting.

Despite these limitations, Claude 3 is a significant upgrade from its predecessors. It can follow multi-step instructions, produce structured output in formats like JSON, and converse in languages other than English. Anthropic also promises that Claude 3 will cite the source of its answers to questions, allowing users to verify them.

Anthropic's ambition is to create a next-gen algorithm for "AI self-teaching." It plans to add features to Claude 3 that enhance its capabilities by allowing Claude to interact with other systems, code "interactively," and deliver "advanced agentic capabilities."

Anthropic is in it for the long haul, aiming to raise as much as $5 billion over the next 12 months. With $2 billion and $4 billion in committed capital and pledges from Google and Amazon, respectively, and well over a billion combined from other backers, Anthropic is well on its way. The AI world waits with bated breath to see if Claude 3 will indeed outperform GPT-4.
