Anthropic, a startup that counts Google as one of its investors, released yesterday its second AI model, Claude 2.

The successor to Anthropic’s first commercial model, Claude 2 is available in beta in the U.S. and U.K., according to TechCrunch.

“We believe that it’s important to deploy these systems to the market and understand how people actually use them,” Sandy Banerjee, the head of go-to-market at Anthropic, said. “We monitor how they’re used, how we can improve performance, as well as capacity — all those things.”

Like ChatGPT, Claude 2 can search across documents, summarize, write and code and answer questions about different topics.

The new version is supposed to be more aware of its limitations, therefore less likely to generation misinformation or toxic content.

“We’ve been working on improving the reasoning and sort of self-awareness of the model,” Banerjee said.
