At the beginning of 2023, practically nothing else is being talked about in the Tech world: the alleged red code within Google for ChatGPT is not a trivial matter. It is precisely in this context that further information arrives which suggests how much BigG wants to focus on AI, given that it is involved a 300 million dollar investment.
Well, as reported by Financial Times And The Vergeat the end of 2022 Google invested in AI startup called Anthropic. The name is not exactly known to everyone, but what stands out are the founders of the company linked to the world of artificial intelligence. Indeed, the provenance of the latter is not going unnoticed.
It’s about former OpenAI researchers, which is the organization behind ChatGPT. Considering the recent developments and the persistent rumors regarding the imminent arrival of a Google chatbot, you understand well that the 300 million dollar investment is positioned in an interesting picture. This is without considering the fact that the startup Anthropic, founded in 2021 by Dario Amodei (former vice president of research at OpenAI), is working on a potential rival of ChatGPT, called Claude (the latter has yet to be released publicly). It should also be noted that the new reality was born following a “disagreement” regarding the direction taken by OpenAI.
According to the sources, the investment would guarantee Google a 10% stake in the company, while Anthropic would be required to buy cloud computing resources from BigG. If it reminds you a bit of the partnership between Microsoft and OpenAI, the reason is that these are operations that seem to go in some ways in the same direction. However, AI training also goes through the clouda sector that sees Microsoft and Google among its players.
For the rest, we may soon learn more about the AI plans by BigG. In fact, Google has announced an event on the subject, the date of which is set for February 8, 2023. We’ll see.
