NIX Solutions: Anthropic Launches Claude 3.5 Sonnet

Anthropic, the developer of large language models and the AI chatbot Claude, has announced and immediately launched a new model, Claude 3.5 Sonnet. This neural network is touted to match or even surpass the capabilities of OpenAI’s GPT-4o and Google’s Gemini. The new product, like its predecessor Claude 3 Sonnet, is available to both paid and free users of the Claude chatbot.

According to The Verge, Claude 3.5 Sonnet is an improved version of the previous model Claude 3 Opus, released just a few months ago and previously available only to paying Claude subscribers. The new model works twice as fast and shows significantly better results in various tasks, including writing program code, handling large queries, and interpreting charts and graphs. This neural network is now standard for the Claude chatbot, available to all users, and serves as a response to GPT-4o, on which ChatGPT is currently built, including the free version.

Testing conducted by Anthropic shows that Claude 3.5 Sonnet outperformed Meta’s GPT-4o, Gemini 1.5 Pro, and Llama 3 400B in 7 of 9 overall performance tests. In image recognition tasks, the new model also demonstrated superior results. We’ll keep you updated as more comparisons and analyses emerge.

New Artifacts Feature

In addition to the new model, the Artifacts feature has been added to the Claude application. This allows users to see and edit the results of AI queries directly in the application interface. For instance, if Claude generates the text of an email, users can edit it without copying and pasting into another program. According to the developers, the Artifacts feature is part of their vision to turn Claude into a single platform for storing knowledge and performing work tasks using the power of AI. This approach sets Anthropic apart from other companies that focus primarily on chatbot development, notes NIX Solutions.

The competitive race in the field of AI continues. In recent months, both Anthropic and its main competitors, OpenAI and Google, have released improved versions of their models several times, each new release demonstrating significant progress. The new Claude 3.5 Sonnet model is already available to registered users of Claude on the web and on iOS, as well as for developers.
