PRODUCT HIGHLIGHT
Anthropic’s latest model is giving GPT-4o and others a run for their money

The AI arms race is continuing at breakneck speed. Anthropic, the AI company that netted a whopping $2.75 billion in funding from Amazon earlier this year, just launched its latest model, Claude 3.5 Sonnet, out of nowhere. 

Sonnet takes up the middle position in the company’s model lineup behind Opus, its highest-end model, and ahead of Haiku, its smallest model. (Is it just me, or is keeping up with all the different names for AI models starting to get a little confusing?) Interestingly, the company claims Sonnet—the middle offering— now outperforms Opus, its largest offering — until Opus gets its own 3.5 update, of course.

What’s the big deal? Like all new releases, the hype comes from how it performs against others, especially OpenAI’s models. According to Anthropic, Sonnet 3.5 matches and beats GPT-4o and Google’s Gemini across various tasks. When you look at the benchmarks, it does look pretty impressive. It outscored GPT-4o, Gemini, and Meta’s Llama 3 400B in seven of the nine overall benchmarks and four of the five vision benchmarks. Of course, benchmarks should be taken with a grain of salt since companies can pick and choose based on what looks good. 

Alongside Sonnet 3.5, Anthropic also released a new feature called Artifacts. With Artifacts, you can now interact more directly with the results from your Claude-based query. Say you generate an image, and if you’re not completely happy with it, you can edit it directly in the app, or maybe you’re writing a cover letter. Instead of copying and pasting it to the notes app, you can make changes directly inside Claude. 

If you want to give the new model a whirl, Sonnet 3.5 is now available to all Claude users on web, and the company’s iOS app.
