Anthropic Secures $450M to Develop Advancement in Artificial Intelligence Assistants

Date:

Anthropic, an AI startup co-founded by former OpenAI veterans, has recently closed a massive Series C funding round at an impressive valuation of over $4.1 billion. Spark Capital led the round, with additional support coming from Google, Salesforce (via Salesforce Ventures), Zoom (via Zoom Ventures) and Sound Ventures.

Anthropic’s AI technologies specialize in conversational and text processing tasks, and the company already has over a dozen customers across various industries, including healthcare, HR, and education. This recent funding round will help Anthropic become even stronger in its mission to build reliable and safe AI systems that can positively contribute to businesses and consumers.

Dario Amodei, CEO of Anthropic, expressed his excitement for this new opportunity. He noticed the large interest and positive response to Anthropic’s products and research, and believes this shows the potential that AI can have in terms of creating a new, thriving society.

Yasmin Razavi, general partner at Spark Capital, became part of Anthropic’s board of directors as part of the latest funding round. She shared her company’s excitement for partnering with Anthropic to build secure and effective AI programs.

The investment brings Anthropic’s total funding up to $1.35 billion, almost reaching OpenAI’s total of over $11.3 billion. Inflection AI, a startup focused on creating AI-powered assistants, has raised $225 million, while another Anthropic rival, Adept, has around $415 million in funding.

Anthropic’s next-gen AI algorithm is aiming to expand its “context window” from 9,000 tokens up to 100,000 tokens. This approach will allow the AI to converse with more detailed responses and respond to questions and tasks faster. Claude, the AI chatbot, is designed to be more reliable and easier to control than other similar models available, and hopes to empower companies with task automation and support.
