Google invests $300M in ChatGPT competitor

Google is investing $300M into Anthropic. Some interesting notes:


  • Anthropic previously raised $580M from Alameda Research (tied to SBF / FTX)
  • Google has it's own GPT competitor in the works (LaMBDA)
  • Created by Dario Amodei as a public benefit corporation who disagreed with OpenAI's commercial focus

What's google's endgame here? They literally invented the base technology used by GPT and now investing in someone else? They have their own stuff in-house.

Jeff Dean previously mentioned Google has to be more cautious given the regulatory scrutiny they already have. If they can't get something out this investment could be a backup plan to still stay relevant.
