OpenAI ex-employees launch chatbot similar to ChatGPT with less damaging results

Anthropic, the company founded by former OpenAI employees, has launched this Wednesday the new chatbot Claude, which offers functions very similar to those of ChatGPT, but is “more manageable” and shows “less harmful results”.

However, the difference with respect to other models such as ChatGPT is that it is a chatbot with qualities that make it “easier to talk to and more manageable”being, in addition, “much less likely to produce harmful results”, as the company has stated in a statement on its blog.

In this sense, Anthropic launched Claude on Tuesday, making two versions available to users through an application programming interface (API). These are Claude-v1, the high-performance and latest-generation option, and Claude Instant, the most economical model.

Specifically, as reflected by the company, prices revolve around $1.45 (1.37 $) per million characters in the case of Claude Instant and $8.60 (8.15 $) per million characters. if using Claude-v1.

Like ChatGPT, Claude does not have internet access and has been trained on data from public web pages until spring 2021. Thus, according to the statements of an Anthropic spokesperson collected by TechCrunch, this chatbot was “trained to avoid sexist, racist and toxic responses”, as well as “to avoid helping a human being to participate in illegal or unethical activities”.

Anthropic has released Claude after testing with partners like Notion, Quora, and DuckDuckGo. Now, your API has been released globally and you have already made an early access link available. However, the spokesperson has stressed that they are not looking for user-level clients at the moment, but rather “start-ups making bold technological bets”, in addition to “larger and more established companies”.
