🤖 Anthropic's Latest AI Model Claims the Top Spot

Plus, Sutskever’s new Startup and Apple's Power Battle with the EU

Hello AI Enthusiast,

These last days Anthropic launched Claude 3.5 Sonnet, their new AI model, Ilya Sutskever, co-founder of OpenAI, introduced his new startup and Apple is delaying the release of certain features in Europe due to EU's regulations.

We've also implemented a new feature where you can see which team member made the commentary under each main news item. 💬

Let’s see how we did!

The Big Picture 🔊

Anthropic Launches Claude 3.5 Sonnet

Anthropic has launched Claude 3.5 Sonnet, which outperforms previous models in intelligence, speed, and cost, and is available on multiple platforms including Anthropic API. Claude 3.5 Sonnet excels in complex tasks, improves visual reasoning, and introduces "Artifacts" for real-time interaction with and editing AI-generated content. Further models in the Claude 3.5 family are expected later this year.

Claude 3.5 Sonnet is faster, produces more human-like output compared to ChatGPT, and really cares about user privacy. The new feature "Artifacts" is impressive; we tested it to replicate a simple website, and it was very close to the original. It's fascinating that they plan to add a collaborative work environment.

Are these features moving Anthropic closer to becoming a product company?

OpenAI Co-Founder Launches Safe Superintelligence

Ilya Sutskever, a co-founder of OpenAI, has launched Safe Superintelligence (SSI) with the goal of developing safe superintelligent AI systems. SSI, a for-profit enterprise, focuses exclusively on AI safety and capabilities. In the meantime, OpenAI acquired database tech firm Rockset, and Multi, a startup developing a video-first collaboration platform.

SSI is stepping in to ensure safety and security when Superintelligence arrives, positioning itself as a research-focused company, unlike OpenAI, which is becoming more product-driven.

The acquisitions of Multi and Rockset show they're betting on product development rather than research.

Apple Delays EU Features Over DMA Privacy

Apple announced it would delay the release of certain features in Europe, including the recently announced Apple Intelligence, due to concerns that the EU's Digital Markets Act (DMA) might compromise user privacy and data security. The company has previously cited regulatory challenges as reasons for limiting features in the EU.

The DMA aims to enhance interoperability between companies, not privacy. While Apple thinks a closed ecosystem protects privacy, the EU believes this harms competition.

Apple finds the application of the EU’s DMA vague, and wants to avoid further fines after recent penalties, insisting that the EU should clarify its regulations.

If you like the new structure and want to learn how non-techies created it in minutes using Claude's new feature, we'll share a step-by-step tutorial.

Last week, we teamed up with Make for a fantastic webinar featuring an AI leader at Make. He showed us how to create Make scenarios from scratch to better manage our CRMs and data.

He didn't just stick to the basics; he shared some more advanced techniques that we can all use in our projects. Our students from the GenAI Project Bootcamp found it super useful.

The next cohort of our GenAI Project Bootcamp starts on July 8th, and we’ve added even more improvements. Our partnership with Make gives students 3 months of free access to their paid plan, helping you build amazing AI automations!

This is your opportunity to learn to leverage AI, even if you don't have a technical background!

When you've spent months setting up your AI adoption strategy, and then a new model comes out.

That's a wrap on our newsletter! Here’s a quick recap before you go:

Catch you next week! 👋
