Anthropic launches Claude 3, Elon Musk sues OpenAI, Mistralโ€™s new LLM & chatbot, and more AI news this week you don't want to miss.

Creator of whatplugin.ai & the What's Brewing in AI newsletter
Mar 5, 2024

Welcome to the 486 new subscribers who joined since last time.

While Elonโ€™s busy suing Sam, Anthropic drops a bomb on us with the launch of Claude 3.

โ€

Whatโ€™s brewing in AI this week:

  • Anthropic launches Claude 3
  • Elon Musk sues OpenAI
  • GPTs: Best new arrivals in the GPT store and I review some featured GPTs
  • The other top stories in AI these last two weeks

โ€

Darioโ€™s Picks:

I. Anthropic launches Claude 3

โ€

โ€

Anthropic launched Claude 3 yesterday. Take a good look at the table above โ€“ their latest top-tier model, Claude 3, reportedly beats GPT-4 and Gemini Ultra on major benchmarks, including knowledge, reasoning, math and code.

Hereโ€™s the details:

  • Claude 3 is a family of models and includes (from least to most capable): Haiku, Sonnet and Opus. The models differ in terms of capability, speed, and cost of use.
  • The models all have a 200k context window (GPT-4 Turbo has 128k). Reportedly, Opus has a 99% recall ability on long context prompts (ie it can remember stuff really well).
  • Anthropic claimโ€™s the modelsโ€™ vision capabilities to be on the level of GPT-4 Turbo.
  • Opus and Sonnet are already available through the Claude.ai chatbot, as well as through the API.

โ€

Why it matters: While everyone has been awaiting the ChatGPT vs Gemini showdown, a new heavy-weight has just entered the stage. Leaderboards are one thing, though, Iโ€™m excited to see how it stacks up against the others in action.

โ€

II. Elon Musk sues OpenAI

Elon Musk is back with harsh critique of OpenAI โ€“ this time waging a lawsuit against the company and itโ€™s co-founder Sam Altman. The gist of it is that Elon claims that OpenAI has been transformed into a closed-source subsidiary of Microsoft, thereby betraying its founding agreement to develop AI for the benefit of humanity rather than for profit. He also claimed GPT-4 is already a type of AGI.

Admittedly, Iโ€™m leaving out ins and outs here that would be better explained by this excellent YouTube summary: Elon's bombshell lawsuit against OpenAI.

OpenAIโ€™s response, according to an internal memo, is that they reject the claims made.

โ€

Why it matters: Some allegations made might be a bit exaggerated, but there seems to be some credible and fully critique-worthy points made by Elon. Iโ€™m not sure if the lawsuit will actually go anywhere, but I do think if OpenAI became more open it would be a net win for everyone.

โ€

III. Mistralโ€™s new LLM, chatbot and partnership with Microsoft

Paris-based startup Mistralโ€™s been busy lately, they:

  • launched a new, cutting-edge model, Mistral Large. Unlike previous Mistral models, itโ€™s not open source. Claims to be the second-best AI (Now 3rd, I guess, with Claude 3 on the market), beating GPT 3.5. However, Gemini Ultra is not mentioned in their comparison. For devs, its roughly 20% cheaper than GPT-4.
  • launched a chat interface to their models, Le Chat*. Under the hood, it can use Large, Small or, their prototype model, Next. The Beta is available here. Theyโ€™re also launching Le Chat Enterprise for businesses.
  • partnered with Microsoft on bringing their models to Azure, also making a $16M investment in Mistral. However, the investment has already drawn attention of EU regulators, inquiring into the agreement.

โ€

Why it matters: Mistral is just 10-month old but making big waves. While it may not yet be fully on par with the big dogs performance-wise (OpenAI, Google, Anthropic), the launch of Mistral Large shows that smaller companies are catching up fast and creating more options in highly capable foundation models for users and developers.

*if this naming isnโ€™t a nod to Pulp Fiction and the โ€œLe Big Macโ€ scene, I donโ€™t know anything.

AI for companionship - market map by a16z

โ€

โ€

Justine Moore of a16z is back again with another elegant and useful market map of the AI landscape - this time for AI companionship.

Takeaways about the AI companionship market:

  • Companion products live on a SFW-spectrum between ๐Ÿ‘ผ and ๐Ÿ˜ˆ. Itโ€™s ranges from AI for kids and virtual pets, to AI girlfriends and sex bots.
  • Thereโ€™s going to be a place for big companies in both SFW and NSFW markets. Key success factors are likely to be:
  • Differentiation versus ChatGPT and regular chatbots (e.g. different UI, less censorship, etc.)
  • Interaction modes beyond text (think avatars, personality, animations).
  • Memory and progression. Most of use yearn for human relationships that remembers stuff about us and evolve over time.
  • Group interactions. Being able to interact with AI companions in virtual or IRL convos with your friends.

Ps. If youโ€™re interested in testing some of the most popular (mostly sfw) companion bots, check out my top lists of character.ai bots and Poe bots.

FAB (feature advantage benefits) Product Analysis

๐Ÿ’ฌ20+

Find easy Feature, Advantage & Benefits of Product, with this FREE AI FAB (Feature / Advantage / Benefits) Product Analysis tool

โ€

โ€

โž This GPT works well for getting a concise overview of key product features quickly. In this example I gave it some product information about Vacation Sunscreenโ€™s โ€œSuper Spritz SPF 50โ€ and it gave me a concise summary of the features of the product, their related advantages and benefits. Could be helpful for marketers to effectively communicate their productโ€™s value.

โ€

God of Prompt

๐Ÿ’ฌ1K+

Instantly generates best AI prompts for ChatGPT, Midjourney & Gemini. Choose the AI Tool and describe your idea for a prompt!

โ€

โ€

โž I asked it to โ€œHelp me prepare for an interview in techโ€, and it gave me these four timely questions back. Basically, you give it an idea for a prompt, and it asks you follow-up questions to make the prompt more specific (thus achieving better responses). So youโ€™ll have to put down the effort to answer a handful of questions before getting a โ€œperfect promptโ€.. but for important tasks itโ€™s worth it.

SEO & Blog Writer Pro

๐Ÿ’ฌ1K+

Expert in SEO Blog Post Writing and Optimization.

โ€

โ€

โžIt features an article wizard that lets you generate an article in 5 steps, allowing you to customise at each step; it also suggests titles and outlines based on SERP. Claims it will give your site an SEO score based on any URL, but when I tried it with whatplugin it replied the site didnโ€™t provide the necessary details. Did a decent jobs on titles and outlines, though.

โ€

Expert SEO Article Writer

๐Ÿ’ฌ500+ ย โ†‘100

Expert SEO article writer for top-ranking, 100% human written articles with Outlines, FAQs and Meta Description.

โ€

โ€

โ€

โž Creates outlines for blog articles based on any keyword you provide, then writes the entire article for you when you type /continue. It created an outline for a comprehensive article, then proceeded to write it (โ‰ˆ2,000 words). The outline provided a useful starting point and the content seems informative enough, albeit quite dull and lacking originality (as one would expect from a one-click generate article).
