Mistral AI releases new model to rival GPT-4 and its own chat assistant

Mistral AI

Paris-based AI startup Mistral AI is gradually building an alternative to OpenAI and Anthropic, as its latest announcement shows. The company is launching a new flagship large language model called Mistral Large. When it comes to reasoning capabilities, it is designed to rival other top-tier models, such as the GPT-4 and Claude 2.

Mistral Large supports 32K-token context windows, which means it can process more information than GPT-4 with a 32K-token context window. It also costs $8 per million of input tokens and $24 per million of output tokens to query Mistral Large, which makes it significantly cheaper than GPT-4-32k.

Le Chat: a ChatGPT-like chat assistant in a public beta

In addition to Mistral Large, the startup is also launching its alternative to ChatGPT with a new service called Le Chat. This chat assistant is currently available in beta, and anyone can sign up and try it out on [Le Chat]. The company says that it is a beta release for now and that there could be “quirks.

While access to the service is free (for now), users can choose between three different models: Mistral Small, Mistral Large, and a prototype model that has been designed to be brief and concise called Mistral Next. The company also plans to launch a paid version of Le Chat for enterprise clients. In addition to central billing, enterprise clients will be able to define moderation mechanisms.

Partnership with Microsoft

Finally, Mistral AI is also using today’s news drop to announce a partnership with Microsoft. The partnership will allow Mistral AI to leverage Microsoft’s cloud infrastructure and Azure AI services to scale up its models and provide better performance and reliability.

Mistral AI is one of the most promising AI startups in Europe, with a strong team of alums from Google’s DeepMind and Meta. The company originally positioned itself as an AI company with an open-source focus, but now seems to be shifting towards a more business-oriented approach. How will Mistral AI compete with the giants of the AI field? We’ll have to wait and see.
