Anthropic’s Claude 2.1 foundation model is now generally available in Amazon Bedrock. Claude 2.1 delivers key capabilities for enterprises, such as an industry-leading 200,000 token context window (2x the context of Claude 2.0), reduced rates of hallucination, improved accuracy over long documents, system prompts, and a beta tool use feature for function calling and workflow orchestration. Amazon Bedrock is a fully managed service that offers a choice of high-performing foundation models from leading AI companies, like Anthropic, along with a broad set of capabilities that provide you with the easiest way to build and scale generative AI applications with foundation models.

Claude 2.1 supports 200,000 tokens, the equivalent of roughly 150,000 words, or over 500 pages of documents. When uploading extensive information to Claude 2.1, you can summarize, perform Q&A, forecast trends, and compare and contrast multiple documents for drafting business plans and analyzing complex contracts. Claude 2.1 has 50% fewer hallucinations in false statements for open-ended conversation and document Q&A, a 30% reduction in incorrect answers, and a 3–4 times lower rate of mistakenly concluding that a document supports a particular claim compared to Claude 2.0. Additionally, Claude 2.1 now supports system prompts, a new feature that can improve Claude’s adherence to guidelines, rules, and instructions.

Anthropic’s Claude 2.1 model in Amazon Bedrock is available in the US East (N. Virginia) and US West (Oregon) AWS Regions.
