The immediate promise of such technology is to vastly speed up reading and writing tasks. This so-called generative AI, for instance, can draft blog posts or read and analyze existing text.
One of the ways Anthropic aims to set itself apart from the competition is the ability of its system to read about 75,000 words at a time, which the company says lets the AI pore through long business documents.
