Anthropic unveils Cloud 2, an AI model that generates longer, safer responses

San Francisco-based AI security startup Anthropic today announced the release of Cloud 2, a more capable version of its AI model Cloud that enables longer and safer interactions with humans.

The updated model has been trained on the additional data to generate responses for up to 4000 tokens, up from about 512 tokens in the last version (Cloud 1.3) released just four months ago. According to Anthropic, Cloud 2 significantly improves performance on metrics such as coding, math and logic problems while generating more harmless responses, addressing concerns about potential abuse.

Anthropic Go-to-Market (GTM) Lead, Sandy Banerjee, said in a recent interview, “Cloud 2 has improved performance, longer responses, and it’s available through APIs as well as a new public-facing beta website.” , accessible through” with VentureBeat. “We hear from our users that Cloud is easy to interact with, explains its thinking clearly, is less likely to produce harmful results, and has a long memory.”

“I’m excited for people to try out Cloud 2,” he said. “Users should treat it as their curious new ally with little context. Provide information about who you are, what you want from AI, and the context of the task you’re delivering. Cloud can iterate and take feedback really well.

Anthropic’s approach seems to be resonating with enterprises. According to Banerjee, the startup is working with “thousands of businesses” using the cloud API, including productivity companies like Slack and Notion. The 100k token context window (that’s the amount of information you can input) in Clod2 is enabling new use cases like summarizing long conversations or drafting memos and op-eds, he said.

Banerjee said that Cloud2 was designed to be helpful, harmless and honest, and the company is always trying to make improvements together on these axes. He also said that Anthropic is following a responsible and measured deployment approach, starting with a few markets — the US and the UK — with plans to expand to more regions.
