Testing and Comparing Free Versions of Claude, Gemini, and ChatGPT

Testing and Comparing Free Versions of Claude, Gemini, and ChatGPT

Large Language Models (LLMs) have rapidly advanced in recent years, demonstrating remarkable capabilities in text generation, problem-solving, and knowledge retrieval.

Three prominent AI assistants at the forefront of this revolution are Anthropic's Claude, OpenAI's ChatGPT, and Google's Gemini.

In this comparison, we'll evaluate the free public versions of these models, exploring their strengths, weaknesses, and optimal applications.

Claude 3 Sonnet: Setting a New Benchmark

Anthropic's Claude 3 aims to be a new standard in LLM performance.

Claude 3 Sonnet, with a 200,000 context window, is a member of the Claude 3 model family, distinguishing itself from other AI models through its distinctive array of capabilities.

From our experience, one standout feature of Claude 3 we've particularly appreciated is its unique "copy and paste" system, setting it apart from the competition.

Claude 3 makes it easy to handle big documents. You can easily copy and paste up to 350 pages or 200k words and focus on your tasks. Unlike ChatGPT 3.5 and Gemini 1.0, Claude 3 makes things simpler. You can quickly analyze or get specific info from large datasets without any extra steps.

Claude 3 empowers you to effortlessly locate or extract a specific topic or sentence from documents containing up to 150,000 words or more.

Unlike GPT-4 Vision, which requires a subscription or API access, Claude 3 Sonnet offers its processing and analysis of text and images at no cost. It mirrors GPT-4V's ability to effortlessly interpret data, providing easy access to comprehensive understanding.

Claude 3 Sonnet has been excelling in recent tests, particularly in its grasp of language and imagery.

Consider a scenario where it's tasked with interpreting texts or analyzing charts and graphs. Here, Claude 3 Sonnet surpasses models like GPT-4V and Gemini 1.0 Ultra, scoring impressively with 89.5% and 81.1% respectively.

Its proficiency extends to scientific imagery as well, where it boasts an 88.7% success rate.

However, when it comes to mathematical problem-solving, Claude 3 Sonnet doesn't quite match up to counterparts such as GPT-4V and Gemini 1.0 Ultra.

Despite these limitations, Claude 3 Sonnet demonstrates remarkable intelligence. Excelling in language comprehension, image analysis, and broad knowledge, it stands out as a versatile and insightful AI.

Gemini Pro 1.0: Your Free AI Tool for Work and Productivity

Google Gemini sets high expectations around coding capabilities, yet often underdelivers on its ambitious promises.

In contrast, Claude shines brightly in the coding arena. Catering to both beginners and seasoned programmers, Claude is adept at crafting entire applications from scratch. Additionally, it skillfully addresses errors with precision, guided by your feedback. ChatGPT also stands out, maintaining a robust grasp on details across extensive interactions.

Google Workspace has introduced Gemini, an advanced AI tool designed to enhance collaboration across businesses.

Many of us rely on Gmail for communication, Google Drive for storage, and the suite of Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides over Microsoft's offerings. Within Google Workspace, Gemini acts as an invaluable assistant, streamlining the brainstorming process and refining ideas through simple conversation.

What sets Gemini apart is its seamless integration with your favorite Google Workspace applications, including Docs, Slides, Sheets, and Meet. Whether you're drafting documents, creating presentations, managing spreadsheets, or conducting video conferences, Gemini is on hand to assist.

Gemini's mission within Workspace is to spark your creativity, elevate your projects, and revolutionize your workflow by providing intelligent recommendations that simplify your professional life.

Though it might be challenging to choose it over alternatives like ChatGPT and Claude, Gemini's deep integration with Google Workspace apps significantly boosts its appeal, offering a cohesive experience without the need to constantly switch between tabs for different tasks.

ChatGPT 3.5: The Standard for Text Generation

This is where it all started. On November 30, 2022, OpenAI posted a blog introducing ChatGPT, which interacts in a conversational way. The dialogue format allows ChatGPT to answer follow-up questions, admit its mistakes, challenge incorrect premises, and reject inappropriate requests.

ChatGPT has become a go-to for many due to its speed, easy access, user-friendly chat interface, and the appealing price tag of 'free.'

While ChatGPT 3.5 has its merits, it's not without its peculiarities. There are moments when it might misinterpret your input or falter under the weight of complex requests. Enter GPT-4 – a more refined iteration that excels in understanding nuances and juggling multiple tasks simultaneously.

Now, here's the thing about the free version: it won't cost you anything, which is nice. But, there's a catch. You can only use it for a certain amount of time each hour or day, and it might be a bit slower since it doesn't have all the fancy stuff of the paid versions. Plus, some cool features might be only for the paid plans. And you might not have as much control over how it writes compared to paid options.

But even with these quirks, ChatGPT 3.5 is still pretty cool. It's like having a smart helper without spending money. It has rules and limits, but it can still do a lot of things pretty well.

To simplify things for you, here’s a benchmark from Anthropic’s blog post comparing Claude with the competition such as GPT 3.5 and Gemini 1.0 Pro:

With so many Large Language Models (LLMs) available, it's like having a wide range of AI options to choose from. However, there is no single "best" model for everyone. It's about discovering the one that suits you best. With the AI landscape evolving faster than you can blink, who knows what incredible models will emerge next year?

Keeping up with the latest trends can really make a difference when it comes to finding the perfect AI tools for your needs. It's all about knowing what you're looking for.

Once you understand what each LLM can do, you can take your work to the next level, dive into research projects, or just have fun experimenting with what's available.
