PLUS: Anthropic + BCG, Databricks' Series I and more fundings.

Hello folks, here’s what we have today;

 Our picks 

1/

Google’s Gemini might come sooner than expected. The scoop from The Information says that some companies are getting early access to a large version of Gemini. It is reported to have lesser hallucinations, better coding power, and other features such as chart analysis.

2/

Anthropic partners with Boston Consulting Group. Anthropic will provide access to Claude 2 to a) the internal teams of BCG and b) enterprise customers of BCG. That’s a big customer base with multiple use cases: market research, fraud detection, report generation, business analysis and more.
