Anthropic released the new entrant in the Claude 3.5 large language model (LLM) ,Claude 3.5 Sonnet, on Friday. The new release comes just three months after the AI firm unveiled the Claude 3 family of artificial intelligence (AI) models. It also gets a new Artifact feature that will allow users to see a sandbox view when the chatbot is asked to generate code snippets, website designs and more.

The Claude 3.5 Sonnet is now more powerful and cost-efficient than the Claude 3 Opus. As per Company’s naming convention, the Haiku model is the smallest, the Sonnet model is placed in the middle, and Opus is the flagship-tier AI model. It is expected that the AI firm will also release the 3.5 Haiku and Opus models in the coming months.

The Claude 3.5 Sonnet comes with a 200,000 token context window and costs $3 (roughly Rs. 250) per million input tokens and $15 (roughly Rs. 1,254) per million output tokens. The company claims that the latest model can run twice as fast as the Claude 3 Opus model. It scored 88.7 percent in 5-shot (AI was trained on a small number of labelled examples) on the Massive Multitask Language Understanding (MMLU) benchmark and 92.0 percent in 0-shot on the HumanEval benchmark.

Anthropic claimed that the Claude 3.5 Sonnet can independently write, edit, and execute code. It also comes with reasoning and troubleshooting capabilities that enable it to perform complex tasks such as code translation.

3.5 Sonnet remains at ASL-2 (AI Safety Level 2) standard. As per the AI firm’s Responsible Scaling Policy, ASL-2 refers to systems that show early signs of dangerous capabilities (such as providing instructions to create a bioweapon) but are not considered useful due to lack of reliability and that the information is already available publicly.

Apart from the text and coding-based upgrades, the new AI model also gets improved computer vision. The AI firm claimed that the Claude 3.5 Sonnet can transcribe text from imperfect images, graphics, or illustrations. A new Artifact feature has also been included with the new AI chatbot. It is a sandbox-style preview window that opens when the AI is asked to generate content such as code snippets, text documents, or website designs. Users can see, edit, and build upon Claude’s generation.
