. . AI: Google's New Small Vision Model and Anthropic Models in Google Cloud (3.20.24)

Google Cloud, Anthropic, Triton, Maestro, Glowby

In today's edition, we explore Google's new 5B parameter vision-language model, as well as the news that Anthropic's models are now accessible through Google Cloud. We also highlight resources and tools relevant to developers, ranging from front-end to neural networks!

As always, these are the stories the AI community is talking about most. We hope you find them useful, literally and/or as analogies and new ways to think about the world!

Google's AI team has launched ScreenAI, a vision-language model designed to interact with user interfaces and infographics. Google says that ScreenAI, with its 5 billion parameters, has achieved top results on tasks involving user interfaces and infographics, and has outperformed similar-sized models on Chart QA, DocVQA, and InfographicVQA. The team also announced they are releasing three new datasets for further research and evaluation of ScreenAI's capabilities.

Anthropic announced that their models Claude 3 Haiku and Claude 3 Sonnet, are now accessible on Google Cloud's Vertex AI platform, enabling businesses to develop and scale AI solutions with robust data privacy and security. Anthropic plans to release its most advanced model, Claude 3 Opus in the near future too. They also shared that Quora's Poe app has integrated Claude, leading to millions of daily message exchanges, though Opus is only available to paid Poe subscribers.

Maestro, which is a python script, has been launched using the Anthropic API and two AI models, Opus and Haiku. According to the developers, Maestro breaks down tasks into smaller components, executes them with the Haiku model, refines the results with the Opus model, and generates a detailed interaction log, all customizable to the user's needs.
