Anthropic, the AI startup co-founded by former OpenAI leaders, has released an updated version of its text generation model, Claude Instant 1.2, available through its API.
It boasts improved performance in areas such as math, coding, reasoning, and security, with better resistance to jailbreaking and hallucination. Claude Instant 1.2 aims to compete with entry-level offerings from OpenAI, Cohere, and AI21 Labs. However, it’s less powerful than Claude 2, which is on par with OpenAI’s GPT-3.5, according to a newly released chatbot benchmark.
