Anthropic's Claude 3 Opus: The New Champion in AI Benchmark Tests

By Staff Writer, 05 March 2024

Anthropic, a leading player in artificial intelligence, has just unveiled Claude 3, a suite of cutting-edge AI models touted as its fastest and most robust yet.

Comprising Claude 3 Opus, Sonnet, and Haiku, these new tools mark a significant leap in the company's capabilities.

Claiming superiority over heavyweights like OpenAI's GPT-4 and Google's Gemini Ultra in industry benchmark tests, Claude 3 Opus stands out as the most advanced model.

It excels in various domains, including undergraduate-level knowledge, graduate-level reasoning, and basic mathematics.

In a groundbreaking move, Anthropic introduces multimodal support for the first time.

This feature allows users to analyze and obtain answers from various unstructured data types, including photos, charts, and documents.

While Opus leads the pack, the more compact and budget-friendly models, Sonnet and Haiku, offer alternative options.

Starting from Monday (March 4th), Opus and Sonnet are available in 159 countries, with Haiku set to follow soon, according to Anthropic.

Although the company didn't disclose specific details about the training duration or cost, it revealed collaborations with companies like Airtable and Asana for A/B testing the models.

Just a year ago, Anthropic was a promising startup in the generative AI landscape, founded by former OpenAI research executives.

While it had secured Series A and B funding, its initial product rollout received limited attention.

Fast forward twelve months, Anthropic has emerged as one of the most sought-after AI startups, attracting investments from tech giants like Google, Salesforce, and Amazon.

With a product lineup directly challenging the likes of ChatGPT in both enterprise and consumer markets, the company has closed five funding rounds, amassing a total of approximately $7.3 billion in funding.
