An AI text-generating startup, with ex-OpenAI staff members among its co-founders, called Anthropic has made their models available for partners.
Robin AI, a legal tech startup, is the first organization to declare utilizing Anthropic models following raising over $13 million in venture capital from Plural, Episode 1 and the Google Black Founders Fund. Quora’s conversational robot application Leia, accessible for both iOS and Android, also utilizes Anthropic models yet it hasn’t been made profitable yet.
Richard Robinson, CEO of Robin, revealed minimal information about the partnership with Anthropic, yet he also told TechCrunch that Robin put efforts into optimizing a Anthropic system on a legal document compilation to form and negotiate agreements.
Robinson stated that they feel fortunate to be the initial partner of Anthropic in the legal industry. The squad’s attention to Artificial Intelligence safety is aligned with their software-as-a-service offering meant for lawyers. This product is especially made for controlling the danger of the most advanced systems alluding to realities.
Anthropic has not been noisy about their intentions to create a product utilizing AI in their generative text space; instead they have focused their attention on academic work. Nonetheless, toward the end of the year they held a private test of a product they named Claude, similar to OpenAI’s Chat-GPT but better in crucial facets. Claude has come to fruition through a method that Anthropic has created which they refer to as ” Developing “constitutional AI” endeavors to build a “principle-based” system to ensure that AI systems comply with the intentions of humans – allowing AI such as ChatGPT to answer questions with a basic set of principles (e.g. refrain from providing detrimental guidance) as a reference point.
At first, Claude had a promising reputation. Nonetheless, it shared the same drawn-backs as ChatGPT, such as offering perilous advice to inquiries (for example: ways to concoct methamphetamine in the house) and delivering disruptions and incorrect facts.
It is not apparent whether Robin is using Claude or a variation of it. Neither Robin nor Anthropic will tell. In spite of repeated inquiries, Anthropic would not say how many collaborators they are teaming up with now and how many models they plan to make available for commercial use.
Anthropic is certainly under some kind of strain from financial backers to make back the numerous dollars that were utilized on its Artificial Intelligence engineering.
Recently, Google has agreed to give Anthropic $300 million in exchange for a 10% share of the company. The Financial Times initially reported the details of the transaction. As part of the deal, Anthropic will use Google Cloud as its primary cloud provider and the two will work together on the production of AI computing systems.
Dario Amodei, who was the Vice President of Research at OpenAI, began Anthropic in 2021 as a public benefit corporation, despite no intention to make a financial gain. He brought along some of his former co-workers, including Jack Clark, the past head of OpenAI’s public policy. Amodei separated from OpenAI due to a clash over their target, essentially the enterprise’s rapid movement towards an exclusively commercial agenda.
The high costs of AI systems drove Anthropic to search for external financing, which turned out to be a whopping $580 million given by a group of people such as Sam Bankman-Fried, Caroline Ellison, Jim McClave, Nishad Singh, Jaan Tallinn, and the Center for Emerging Risk Research.
It is uncertain whether Anthropic’s partnerships and investments from Big Tech are indicative of a change in its goals. What is certain, however, is that the company has faith that its technology is distinct enough to stand out among competitor organizations, such as OpenAI, Cohere and AI21 Labs, which all provide the option to obtain their AI text-creation tools for a fee through application programming interfaces.
