Safety Above All: Anthropic’s Uniquely Principled Approach to AI Development

Throughout 2023, one professional field that has exploded in relevance and burst onto everybody’s screens is that of Artificial intelligence (AI). Although much of this attention has been centred on OpenAI and ChatGPT, a derivative large language model (LLM) named Claude AI has drawn serious interest from investors and enthusiasts alike. 

The pioneering firm behind Claude is a San Francisco-based startup named Anthropic, which opened its doors in early 2021. So far, Anthropic’s call to fame has been its focus and relentless dedication to developing reliable AI systems that lead the industry in responsibility and safety. 

Moreover, Anthropic has published insightful research uncovering the potential impacts of AI on the world and shedding light on any underlying risks and opportunities that come with leveraging the technology.

It is important to note that above all else, Anthropic virtuously commits itself further than the technological innovation typically expected of tech companies, instead setting safety as their success metric. They strive to build AI systems that are honest, helpful, and harmless. 

This unique approach has allowed Anthropic to build a systematic pipeline wherein the firm carries out experimental research, applies any findings to its AI offerings, and crowdsources valuable insights from the global community. This community response, in turn, further strengthens the applicability of its AI suite and aligns stakeholders (researchers, data scientists, engineers, policy analysts, etc.).
