New Claude beats GPT-4o

Our Report: Anthropic has revealed its newest AI model—Claude 3.5 Sonnet—which reportedly performs better across a variety of tasks than OpenAI’s GPT-4o and Google’s Gemini, and is available to web and iOS Claude users.

🔑 Key Points: 

  • It’s twice the speed of its predecessor (Claude 3 Sonnet), outperforms its biggest model (Opus), understands more complex instructions, interprets charts accurately, and transcribes text from “imperfect” images.

  • It also outperformed OpenAI’s GPT-4o, Google’s Gemini 1.5 Pro, and Meta’s Llama 3 in 7/9 industry benchmarks and 4/5 vision benchmarks, as it was trained on new and AI-generated data.

  • Claude 3.5 Sonnet also drives a new feature (called Artifacts) which allows users to edit and add to content—like code, emails, or documents—that have been generated by Claude, within the app.

🤔 Why you should care: Anthropic just launched Claude 3 Opus in March, and its newest release comes hot on the heels of OpenAI’s GPt-4o and Google’s Gemini 1.5 Pro, all launched within months of each other, highlighting the rapid pace of innovation, improvement, and competition within the industry. However, recent improvements to these models have been incremental: There hasn’t been a massive leap of progress since the upgrade of GPT-3 to GPT-4, possibly because of the amount of compute needed to train these models.

Which of these leading AI models–Claude, Gemini, Llama, Copilot, and GPT–do you prefer?

Our Report: Following the launch of its Cybersecurity Grant Program in 2023—designed to equip cybersecurity defenders with advanced AI models and support research into how AI can be used in cybersecurity—OpenAI has shared some of the groundbreaking projects they have supported during this program.

🔑 Key Points:

  • Since the program launched, OpenAI has supported various cybersecurity projects including protecting large language models (LLMs) from prompt-injection attacks and cybersecurity threats.

  • It’s also sponsored projects using AI to automate the detection and reduction of software misconfiguration (a common cause of security incidents), as current methods rely on outdated rules-based policies.

  • Plus, it’s working with labs to build AI-powered defense techniques that prevent attacks (without compromising accuracy or efficiency) and improve the ability of LLMS to identify and fix code vulnerabilities.

🤔 Why you should care: OpenAI received over 600 applications for the program, highlighting the critical need and potential to improve current cybersecurity defenses and, to show its support for the cause, has given ChatGPT Plus access to many in the cybersecurity space (at no cost), seeing it “as key to enhancing AI adoption in cyber defense.”

🏙️ Paris expands AI start-up hub

Our Report: Paris-based AI start-up, Poolside—which is building an AI coding assistant, designed to speed up software development—is expecting to raise over $400M, giving it a $2B valuation, post-funding, cementing Paris as a hub for AI start-ups.

🔑 Key Points:

  • It previously raised $126M last August from multiple backers, including Point Nine, Redpoint, and Bain Capital Ventures—which are rumored to be co-leading this funding round.

  • Investors are impressed with the founding team's experience, as CEO Warner was the former GitHub CTO, and CTO Eiso Kant, founded the AI dev tool firm, Athenian, which was acquired by Linux.

  • The coding assistant (not yet publicly available) will just focus on one objective: To help developers work quicker, which is unlike many existing models that have a more generalized approach.

🤔 Why you should care: This latest funding round is further bolstering Paris as a major hub for AI software development start-ups, with the likes of Mistral and H (which have raised $113M and $220M, respectively) also emerging from the ‘City of Lights’, but it’s raising concerns over market saturation: Will Poolsides experience and singular focus on developer productivity equate to success in such a crowded market?

🎙️ Voiceover artists facing extinction?

Our Report: Audio platform (Pocket FM) has partnered with voice-cloning company (ElevenLabs) to convert text (such as scripts) into audio, using AI, potentially leaving voiceover artists out of work.

🔑 Key Points:

  • Pocket FM was already using ElevenLabs to try and convert text content into audio, and has now decided to expand the partnership and make the tool available to help writers convert their work into audio series.

  • During testing, Pocket FM produced over 30,000 hours of audio—while slashing audio production budgets by 90%—and expects to triple its content library (which already has 100,000 hours of audio) this year.

  • Co-founder Prateek Dixit believes that, using current methods, writers can just produce 30mins of high-quality audio a day, but with this new AI tool, they’ll be able to produce 10X more.

🤔 Why you should care: Like many in the creative industry, the role of the voiceover artist could face extinction if the use of AI is not properly regulated, as there are already reports that voiceover artists' voices are being used for training, without consent, leaving them with no livelihood.
