Anthropic Releases Claude 3.5 Sonet, Setting New AI Benchmarks

Anthropic has just shaken up the entire AI industry with their new model, Claude 3.5 Sonnet. This model is now the best AI model you can use. It performs better than any other model from any other company. This caught everyone off guard, especially since models like GPT-4.o and LLaMA 400 billion parameters were also very good.

Claude 3.5 Sonnet is not even Anthropic's largest model. This means future updates could be even more impressive. On the GP QA benchmark, it takes a 5.9% jump over GPT-4.o. It also scores 88.7% on MML, 92% on coding, 91.6% on multilingual math, 87% on reasoning over text, 93% on Big Bench Hard, 71.1% on math benchmark, and 96.4% on grade school math.

This model is also fast. Many benchmarks show that Claude 3.5 Sonnet performs well in zero-shot settings. This is where the model answers questions without any prior examples. In some cases, it uses a few interactions to give a better answer, known as three-shot or five-shot settings. This is where they ask the model the final question after a few interactions.

One of the coolest things about Claude 3.5 Sonnet is its strong reasoning abilities. It helps users with complex tasks like writing novels and creating detailed diagrams. Many users say it’s unlike anything they’ve seen before. Claude also excels at coding. It can help write and fix code, making it a valuable tool for developers.

Claude now comes with stronger vision capabilities. In one demo, a user asked Claude to transcribe data from images into JSON. Claude did this quickly and accurately. It even helped create a presentation based on the data, showcasing its ability to handle multiple tasks efficiently.

Another interesting feature is called artifacts. These appear next to your chat and allow you to build and iterate on your creations in real time. For example, a user asked Claude to create an 8-bit star crab and then added seashells to the scene. Eventually, they combined these elements into a playable game, all within a few minutes.

Claude 3.5 Sonnet also excels at agentic coding. It solves 64% of problems on an internal evaluation, compared to 38% for Claude 3 Opus. This test checks the model's ability to understand and improve open-source code based on natural language descriptions. The results show that Claude 3.5 Sonnet is nearly twice as good as its predecessor.

The price-to-intelligence ratio of Claude 3.5 Sonnet is another big surprise. Despite its advanced capabilities, it costs the same as Claude 3 Opus. This trend of increasing intelligence without increasing cost is exciting for the future of AI.

Anthropic plans to release more models later this year, including Claude 3.5 Haiku and Claude 3.5 Opus. These new models aim to further improve the balance between intelligence, speed, and cost. They are also working on features like memory, which will allow Claude to remember a user's preferences and past interactions, making it even more personalized and efficient.

In short, Claude 3.5 Sonnet sets a new standard for AI models. Its strong reasoning, vision capabilities, and coding skills make it a remarkable release. As Anthropic continues to innovate, the future of AI looks more promising than ever.
