Anthropic’s latest model is giving GPT-4o and others a run for their moneyAnthropic’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.

This AI tool wants to save you hours of video editing time by automating it

Being a content creator can be hard work. For every video you watch, potential hours or even days' worth of work are pumped into it, from script-writing to shooting scenes to editing to distribution efforts. It’s a lot. 

One of those tasks is video editing, which can be notoriously difficult and time-consuming. Having to line up every clip perfectly and match audio is no small feat. What if there was a way to automate it? 

Cue content creator gasps.

Tellers is a new platform that aims to automate much of the video-editing process with the help of AI. All you have to do is provide a script or even an article, select a source for your video clips, and you will be presented with a ready-to-publish video in a few moments. It doesn’t require any prior editing experience, and if you’re not completely happy with the end result, you can dive back in, rearrange the clips, and upload new ones. 

Video generation isn’t anything particularly new when it comes to AI. Sora has been blowing minds for a few months, and I covered Luma AI’s Dream Machine only last week. Where Tellers differs is how it creates videos. Rather than generating a scene out of the blue, it pulls clips from existing sources the team has partnered with, like Pexels, and edits them to match the script you provided. 

One use case I kept thinking about when testing out Tellers is for startup marketing. Video is critical to marketing these days but what if you don’t want to spend the time and or the money to create one? With something like Tellers, you could theoretically pump out videos at a faster rate with less time and cash spent doing so.

This AI platform collaborates with big-name artists to make music accessible to all

Remember when The Beatles got together for one last song? It got mixed reviews, but the fact that one of the biggest bands of all time embraced AI set a precedent. AI was going to change the music industry. From writing songs to generating entire tracks, many predicted an AI-powered musical revolution.

TwoShot is one of those AI apps looking to make its mark on the music scene. Launched last week, It is focused on making music accessible to all by letting you craft tracks with your voice, text prompt, or just by humming into a mic. 

Say you’re working on a lo-fi track to stimulate productivity. You can instruct TwoShot to generate a “melody of flutes inspired by nature” and then pair it with a chill drum line by beatboxing into your mic. The AI will turn it into a full-fledged, professional-sounding track. 

It also comes with a library of over 200,000 samples, ranging from rock to country music and everything in between, that you can grab for inspiration or even use the AI to remix into something new to create your next banger. 

One of the most powerful features is TwoShot's plethora of different models. While building your track, you can swap your chosen AI model at any stage for a different one, including ones built by big names. Say you want your lyrics to have a female voice. You can load up the “Grimes” model with your prompt or existing sounds, and it will work it into a more Grimes-esque sound.

Alongside that, these models are “ethically trained,” according to the team, meaning they usually have attained artist permission to use their likeness or have worked with them to create the model itself, like in the case of the Grimes one above.
