Anthropic, a startup founded by former OpenAI employees and focused on developing safe AI, has received $300 million in funding from Google and recently attended a White House regulatory discussion. Its only product is a chatbot named Claude, primarily available through Slack, but co-founder Jared Kaplan says the company’s current focus is on developing “constitutional AI” to train AI systems to be more human-like in their decision-making and ethical capabilities. The company’s safety-first approach to AI makes it an important player in the industry, but it remains relatively unknown to the general public.
