Claude's artificial intelligence available in Europe: here's how to try it

Claude is a model of generative artificial intelligence developed by Anthropic, a startup founded by former OpenAI members. The most recent version immediately promised superior performance compared to main competitors such as OpenAI’s ChatGPT and Google’s Gemini. Claude 3 includes the Haiku, Sonnet, and Opus templates, designed to offer improved capabilities processing of the natural language“reasoning” and “understanding” of context compared to previous versions.

The most recent incarnation of Claude stands out for its multimodal capabilities or its ability to manage prompt containing both text and images. Already the basic model of the family, Haiku, proves capable of analysis complex documents in less than 3 seconds.

Thanks to “understanding” of the context optimized, Claude refrains from rejecting innocuous requests and integrates multiple question answering capabilities, the ability to stick to the longest and most complex instructions, showing unparalleled accuracy.

Claude: Anthropic’s artificial intelligence and generative models also accessible from Europe

Trying to get ahead of some competitors, who are working on new innovative products in terms of artificial intelligence solutions, Anthropic tries to extend its user base and in mid-May 2024 presents all its services in our country (and in Europe in general).

To try and use them, simply go to the project home page and then click Try Claude. At this point it is necessary to carry out the registration with a normal email address or log in with a Google account. In any case, Anthropic asks you to enter a telephone number reference, to which the confirmation code is sent (to be entered into the Web application to conclude the procedure).

The entire Anthropic offer available in Europe

From today, private users, professionals and companies in Europe can take advantage of the entire Anthropic offer:

In the article in which we explain how a Large Language Model (LLM) without using mathematics (or almost), we have highlighted how the training phase plays an essential role. Using a corpus voluminous of texts in Europen languageallowed Anthropic engineers to provide Claude with a high level of “understanding” and fluency, even with regards to texts written in our language.

Developers can also interact with Claude’s models using the API (Application Programming Interface): in this way it becomes possible to enrich your applications with the artificial intelligence features provided by Anthropic. The prices of the API Claude are different depending on the chosen model (Haiku, Sonnet or Opus) and include variable costs per Megatoken (1 million tokens processed, both input and output).
