Claude’s new model can handle longer I/Os, parse documents with up to 100,000 tokens, and write content with up to a few thousand tokens.

I tested the upload feature in Claude 2 with a 31-page PDF of a study and it quickly responded with the following.

I also asked him some basic questions about an exported GA4 report.

This makes it the perfect alternative to any ChatGPT plugin that offers PDF analysis.

Claude 2 has enhanced thinking skills

The new version of Anthropic has stronger language and reasoning skills compared to previous versions and scores better on tests like the BAR exam and the GRE.

The company states that this model has much better coding skills and scores significantly higher in programmer ratings.

According to Anthropic, Claude was developed with security in mind to reduce the likelihood of malicious content being generated. The company uses extensive techniques and testing to reduce risk.

The public site provides users with signup disclaimers about the AI ​​Assistant as to the reliability of the information.

Claude API Early Access for Enterprises

The Claude API is also offered to businesses at the same price as the previous version.

You can sign up for early access to the Claude API here: https://www.anthropic.com/earlyaccess

Early partners, including Jasper and Sourcegraph, are already integrating the new version of Claude via the API and appreciate the improved semantics, reasoning, and larger context window.

Antrhopic’s news coincides with the announcement of Jasper’s firing to focus on AI:

And so today, with a heavy heart, I shared with the Jasper team that we are eliminating a number of roles so we can sharpen our focus and align our resources to become the best possible AI co-pilot for marketing teams.

The future of conversational AI is here

With the rapid advancement of conversational AI, Anthropic is becoming a reliable alternative to ChatGPT and other generative AI chatbots.
