ChatGPT has made "chat with your PDF" startups unnecessary, and now Bard is doing the same for "chat with video" apps. Bard's new feature allows it to comprehend and talk about YouTube videos effectively.
We are really impressed by how fast it works. For example, it took just 5 seconds to summarize a one-hour PewDiePie’s latest video.
Anthropic has updated their AI, Claude, to version 2.1.
This new version can understand and remember much more information - up to 200,000 words, which is like 500 pages of a book.
It's also better at giving correct answers and makes fewer mistakes.
You can test out Claude 2.1 through Anthropic's chatting platform.
