Anthropic’s new CPO: It’s alive! 🤳 ✨

But first, let me take a selfie. 💁‍♀️

On Wednesday, Anthropic announced its new Chief Product Officer. Mike Krieger was the Co-Founder of Instagram.

Who is this dude?

He co-founded Instagram, scaled it to over a billion users, and co-founded Artifact, an AI news app. Artifact was acquired by Yahoo in March. He praised Anthropic and sees potential in their AI research and product development.

Why this guy?

Anthropic just released Claude’s iOS app with multilingual support, an area he has experience in. He'll lead product development, improve Claude, and more. The goal is to speed compete with major AI companies, accelerate product development, and more.

"Mike's background in developing intuitive products and user experiences will be invaluable as we create new ways for people to interact with Claude, particularly in the workplace. We feel fortunate to add Mike's vision and expertise to our leadership team.”

Dario Amodei, Anthropic’s CEO

Felt cute, might delete later. 🤷‍♀️
