Anthropic, an AI safety and research company, recently launched its take on the next-generation AI assistant with Claude. Claude shares a conversational tone with ChatGPT as well as the diversity of tasks it is capable of performing, such as summarization, search, creative and collaborative writing, and more. The chatbot is available through a chat interface and API in Anthropic’s developer console. The company also offers two different versions of the tool: Claude and Claude Instant. The former offers the basic run-of-the-mill features, while the latter prioritizes speed. Anthropic has also partnered with companies such as Quora, Juni Learning, Notion, and DuckDuckGo, all of which help fortify Claude’s AI capabilities.
While ChatGPT has captured the attention of many with its conversational tone, Claude takes this feature a step forward, going out of its way to add its two cents in when necessary and ask follow-up questions of the user. As a result, it can come off as the more long-winded chatbot of the two, which could be a positive or negative depending on one’s taste. ChatGPT is also the preferred option for those looking to use their AI assistant specifically for coding purposes as Claude is incapable of producing complete evaluation code. It can, however, produce basic sorting algorithms. Those looking to use an AI chatbot for the novelty over the utility may ultimately prefer Claude to ChatGPT.
