Founded by former OpenAI sibling duo in 2021, Anthropic raised $580 million in Series B funding round led by Sam Bankman-Fried, former chief executive at FTX—and now a suspected fraudster—among others.
‘Claude’ is a large language model assistant which is claimed to give tough competition to OpenAI’s ChatGPT.
The company is focused on understanding and developing safe AI systems, utilising a unique approach known as “constitutional AI”.
With a goal of responsibly scaling AI technology, Anthropic is making progress in reverse engineering the behaviour of small language models and understanding the logic behind the pattern-matching behaviour in larger language models.
