NEW YORK — Technology companies are falling over themselves to promote expertise in generative AI, the hot new technology that churns out text and images as well as humans can. But few are clamoring for the title of “safest AI firm.”

That is where Anthropic comes in. The San Francisco-based startup was founded by former researchers at OpenAI who rankled at its increasingly commercial focus and split away to create their own firm. Anthropic calls itself an “AI safety” company that’s building “steerable” systems, including a large language model similar to the one underpinning OpenAI’s ChatGPT.
