Claude 2 is a new AI-powered chatbot that was released today, and it’s pretty impressive.

It’s also free to use.

It’s not fair to evaluate and compare chatbots on the basis of two questions, but the two I asked Claude 2 (“What are the best strategies for teaching English Language Learners?” and “Can you create a six sentence strip story for a Beginning English Language Learner around the topic of food preparation?”) resulted in slightly better responses than I have received from ChatGPT.

You can read more about the company behind Claude 2 at today’s New York Times article, Inside the White-Hot Center of A.I. Doomerism.
