Anthropic Unveils Enhanced AI Model, Claude Instant 1.2

Updated: Dec 11, 2023

Say hello to Claude Instant 1.2, the latest brainchild of Anthropic, the AI startup co-founded by former OpenAI executives.

This updated version of the text-generating model is not just faster and cheaper, but it's also now available through an API.

Claude Instant 1.2 is a significant upgrade from its predecessor, Claude Instant 1.1. It inherits the strengths of Anthropic’s recently announced flagship model, Claude 2, with notable improvements in areas such as math, coding, reasoning, and safety.

In a head-to-head comparison, Claude Instant 1.2 outperformed its predecessor, scoring 58.7% on a coding benchmark, compared to 52.8% for Claude Instant 1.1. It also scored an impressive 86.7% on a set of math questions, a leap from the 80.9% achieved by Claude Instant 1.1.

But that's not all. Claude Instant 1.2 also excels in generating longer, more structured responses and is better at following formatting instructions. It shows improvements in quote extraction, multilingual capabilities, and question answering.

Safety is a key concern in the world of AI, and Claude Instant 1.2 doesn't disappoint. It's less likely to "hallucinate" and generate nonsensical text, and it's more resistant to "jailbreaking" attempts, where cleverly-written prompts are used to bypass safety features.

Another standout feature of Claude Instant 1.2 is its context window. It's the same size as Claude 2’s — 100,000 tokens. This means it can analyse roughly 75,000 words, about the length of "The Great Gatsby". This large context window helps the model remember the content of recent conversations better.

Anthropic, launched in 2021, has ambitious plans to create a "next-gen algorithm for AI self-teaching". The company envisions this algorithm powering virtual assistants that can answer emails, perform research, and even generate art and books.

While Anthropic continues to work towards this goal, Claude Instant 1.2 is set to compete with similar entry-level offerings from OpenAI, Cohere, and AI21 Labs. With thousands of customers and partners already on board, including Quora, DuckDuckGo, and Notion, the future looks bright for Anthropic and its AI models.

So, whether you're a property professional or a business owner, keep an eye on Anthropic. Their AI innovations could be the game-changer you've been waiting for!
