Anthropic launched a significant upgrade to its conversational AI assistant, Claude 2, with 100k context windows.
The new Claude-2-100k model provides improved performance, longer responses, and expanded access through a public beta website and API integration.
Claude 2 File Uploads
You can upload PDFs and other types of files for analysis.
The new model of Claude can handle longer input and output, analyzing documents of up to 100,000 tokens, or writing content with up to a few thousand tokens.
I tested the upload feature in Claude 2 with a 31-page PDF file of a study, and it quickly responded with the following.
Improved Reasoning Capabilities
Claude 2 demonstrates stronger language and reasoning capabilities than previous versions, scoring higher on tests like the BAR exam and GRE.
The company claims this model has much better coding abilities, with significantly higher scores on programming evaluations.
Anthropic says safety has been a focus in developing Claude, making it less likely to generate harmful content. The company uses extensive techniques and testing to reduce risks.
How To Get Claude 2
Claude-2-100k is available in a public beta for users in the US and UK through the new website and Poe.com with a paid subscription.
The Claude API is also offered for businesses, with the same pricing as the previous version.
