Anthropic releases new large model Claude 3.5 Sonnet, test results surpass GPT-4o

AI startup Anthropic has launched its latest model, Claude 3.5 Sonnet, and claims that the model's performance on various tasks is equivalent to or better than GPT-4o and Google's Gemini.

The Sonnet model is Anthropic's intermediate model, between the smallest model Haiku and the highest-end model Opus. According to Anthropic officials, the Claude 3.5 Sonnet is stronger than the 3 Opus.

According to Anthropic, Claude 3.5 Sonnet will be better at writing and translating code, handling multi-step workflows, interpreting diagrams and transcribing text from images, as well as being better at understanding humor, and able to write in a more human way.

The Claude 3.5 Sonnet outperformed GPT-4o, Gemini 1.5 Pro, and Meta's Llama 3 400B in seven of the nine overall benchmarks and four of the five visual benchmark models.

In addition to new models, Anthropic also introduced a new feature called "Artifacts" that expands the way large models interact with users. Allows users to integrate AI applications directly into workflows. For example, if Claude writes an email, the user can edit the email directly within the Claude app without copying it to a text editor.

Lin Bin, vice chairman of Xiaomi Group, was accused of breaking his promise to reduce his holdings and cash out RMB 160 million. The official response was that "it was for public welfare."

Red Star News reported yesterday that Lin Bin, co-founder and vice chairman of Xiaomi Group, reduced his holdings for three consecutive trading days from June 4 to June 6, reducing his holdings by a total of 10 million shares, cashing out a total of approximately 179 million Hong Kong dollars (approximately RMB 166.5 million). Yuan).

It is reported that in 2020, Xiaomi Group issued an announcement stating that Lin Bin voluntarily promised that within five years from the date of the announcement, Lin Bin and all entities controlled by him would not sell the shares of the company that he directly or indirectly beneficially owns at his own discretion. Therefore, this reduction of holdings caused dissatisfaction among many investors.

Yesterday, a person in charge of Xiaomi Group responded that the reduction of holdings and cash out was for charity. For details, you can check the donation to Sun Yat-sen University.

Sun Yat-sen University officials posted on Weibo on April 17 that alumni Lin Bin and Liu Xiangdong and his wife donated 100 million yuan to Sun Yat-sen University.

Regarding the time difference between donation and reduction, the person in charge of Xiaomi responded that this is not because the bank card can be credited directly, but the difference between the amount of cash reduction and the donation amount is because of "the difference between Hong Kong dollars and RMB."

EU proposes legislation to force scanning of all chat messages to detect child sexual abuse content

The European Union is considering passing a law called the Chat Control Act, which would make it mandatory to scan digital communications, including encrypted messages, to detect child sexual abuse material.

The legislation aims to create a system of "upload moderation" that would scan all digital messages, images, videos and links before they are encrypted by messaging apps such as WhatsApp, Signal and Messenger. Users need to agree to scan messages, and if they decline, they won't be able to share images or URL links.

While the law recognizes the importance of end-to-end encryption to protect fundamental rights, it also recognizes that encrypted messaging services can inadvertently serve as a safe haven for sharing child sexual abuse material.

Meredith Whittaker, president of messaging app Signal, strongly opposes the law, which she believes fundamentally undermines encryption technology, and has threatened to halt Singal's business in the EU if the law passes.

The European Council will vote on this law on June 20, local time.
