Recently, rival Anthropic revealed Claude, a ChatGPT rival to competitor OpenAI new GPT-4 model. In a related announcement, Quora said that its Poe chatbot app would soon have a premium version that will enable you to communicate with bots that are powered by these models.
Poe memberships cost $19.99 per month or $199.99 annually, and you can only currently purchase them from an Apple Silicon- or iOS-powered Mac. The business is focused on enabling online purchases of the premium plan.
About Poe by Quora
“Platform for Open Exploration” is abbreviated. Poe is “intended to be a location where individuals can quickly communicate with a variety of different AI agents,” but it is invite-only and only works on iOS right now.
Poe, then, isn’t an effort to create an AI model similar to ChatGPT from scratch. The capacity of ChatGPT to sometimes provide responses that seem convincing but aren’t factually correct has caused controversy. ChatGPT has a talent for providing replies to inquiries on subjects ranging from poetry to code. Earlier this month, the coding-focused Q&A website Stack Overflow temporarily outlawed the sharing of material produced by ChatGPT, claiming that the AI made it too simple for users to create answers and oversaturate the site with questionable ones.
Adam D’Angelo, the CEO of Quora, stated on Twitter that paid customers may communicate with chatbots powered by Claude+ and GPT-4 (version 1.2). Unfortunately, you are only able to ask a limited number of questions to these models on the premium tier. Poe limits the monthly usage to 1,000 Claude 1.2 messages and 300 GPT-4 messages. After a user surpasses the monthly cap, “bot availability or quality may be limited,” according to the site.
Today, we are opening up public access to a new AI product we have been building called Poe. Poe lets people ask questions, get instant answers, and have back-and-forth conversations with several AI-powered bots. (1/n) pic.twitter.com/G9LeO45sc8— Adam D'Angelo (@adamdangelo) February 3, 2023
Free users may now test these models and ask them one question every day without paying anything. Users can engage with ChatGPT, Claude, Sage, and Dragonfly, among other bots, indefinitely, according to D’Angelo. These models, according to Poe, have various functions and characteristics. According to the business, these bots:
- Claude tends to be better at many creative writing tasks, but it is more likely to refuse to answer questions.
- Claude+ is significantly better than Claude, especially in non-English languages. In English, it generates more in-depth answers than Claude, as well.
- Sage and ChatGPT tend to be better at languages other than English, and are better at programming-related tasks.
- Dragonfly tends to have shorter responses, and it can be easier to get Dragonfly to follow instructions when given examples in the input.
- GPT-4 is a major advance relative to ChatGPT and is the most powerful language model available to the world today. It is particularly strong at creative writing, problem-solving (e.g. math and physics) and instruction following.
Poe and Quora do not yet share any direct connections. But, the business said last month that its answers might be posted on the Q&A platform with more than 400 million monthly visitors provided Poe’s created material met specific criteria.
The GPT-4-powered subscription that enables an AI-based instructor to learn languages was also launched by Duolingo together with Poe. Microsoft also broke its secrecy pledge and acknowledged that GPT-4 was being used by Bing all along. Also, the daily limit for messages in the Bing chat has been raised to 150. According to Khan Academy, an AI assistant that will support instructors with administrative responsibilities as a teaching assistant is now being tested. On the other side, children may utilize it to offer story ideas and receive math assistance.
