Recently, Anthropic has launched its latest AI model called Claude 3.5 Sonnet — the company’s first release in the upcoming Claude 3.5 AI model series.

About Claude 3.5 Sonnet

  • It is a large language model (LLM), and is part of the family of LLMs which is being developed by Anthropic.
  • These models are known as generative pre-trained transformers, which mean they have been pre-trained to predict the next word in large amounts of text.
  • It is likely to be the middle model (based on parameter size) in the upcoming series of AI models by Anthropic — the smallest and biggest models are yet to be released.
  • Anthropic has said Claude 3.5 Sonnet outperforms Claude 3 Opus by a huge margin. The new model is claimed to be twice as fast as the Claude 3 Sonnet.
  • It is Anthropic’s strongest vision model. A vision model in AI is a model capable of interpreting and analysing visual data such as images and videos.
  • According to the company, the improvements in Claude 3.5 Sonnet are most noticeable for tasks that require visual reasoning such as decoding charts and graphs. The model is also capable of accurately transcribing text from imperfect images.

How does Claude 3.5 Sonnet perform?

  • According to Anthropic, Claude 3.5 Sonnet sets some new industry benchmarks in capabilities such as coding proficiency (HumanEval), graduate-level reasoning (GPQA), and undergraduate-level knowledge (MMLU).
  • The new model has also shown significant improvement in grasping nuance, humour, and complex instructions.
  • It is exceptional at writing high-quality content with a natural and relatable tone, according to Anthropic.

Q1: What are Large Language Models (LLMs)?

A large language model (LLM) is a type of artificial intelligence (AI) program that can recognize and generate text, among other tasks. LLMs are trained on huge sets of data—hence the name "large."
