More Ways To Use Claude-2
In addition to Perplexity, you can find Claude-2 on Claude.ai and Poe.
Claude-2 on Anthropic’s web interface offers limited free access to the model, with paid plans coming soon, possibly starting at $50 monthly.
As shown below, Claude.ai accepts up to five file uploads at 10 MB each for analysis and summaries.
Quora’s Poe also offers the Claude-2-100k model as one of its AI bots with a $20 monthly premium subscription.
Like Perplexity and Claude.ai, Poe allows users to upload multiple files for analysis with Claude-2-100k.
The key feature that separates Perplexity’s service from the others is web access via Copilot, which allows Claude-2 to summarize current information from the web.
Conversely, Claude-2 on Claude.ai and Poe only works with user input and limited training data.
Combining Claude-2 With Web Access
By incorporating Claude-2, Perplexity gives users access to one of the top AI models with access to the web for research.
The new model could help marketers and content creators streamline the research process, enabling them to produce higher-quality content faster.
