    Claude Pro: First impressions of Anthropic’s paid AI chatbot

    Artificial intelligence is all over the news right now with information, narratives and opinions plentiful if not bountiful on the pros and cons of AI.

    ChatGPT, Claude, Bing, or Bard?

    How do four of the most prominent AI chatbots compare? That question was put to me recently by a friend who has a fair amount of scepticism about AI chatbots and was keen to know which one is best.

    A tweet in my timeline early today from Joshua Conkel, a writer and director in Los Angeles, caught my eye. I want a Knives Out movie where Benoit and his husband are on a vacation together and Benoit is like, “I won’t solve any mysteries on this vacation, I promise” but then he has to…

    AI that will write email replies is here
