Amazon, which offers all three new Claude 3 models in its Bedrock cloud service, shows a video of Claude 3’s visual capabilities in action. For example, it says, “Pharmaceutical companies can query drug research papers alongside protein structure diagrams to speed discovery. Media organizations can automatically generate captions or video scripts.” The model shown is the largest, Opus.

Anthropic introduces Claude 3, its latest large language model, available in three versions. The most powerful version, “Opus”, is supposed to be at least on par with GPT-4.


technical report for Claude 3 suggests that Anthropic used synthetic data (“generated internally”) in addition to common Internet data, with a cutoff date of August 2023.

“Claude 3 models are trained on a proprietary blend of publicly available information on the Internet as of August 2023, as well as non-public data from third parties, data provided by data labeling services and paid contractors, and data we generate internally.”
