Microsoft Corp. declared that its cloud-based Azure service would soon include ChatGPT, a popular artificial intelligence bot from OpenAI. As Microsoft considers a substantially bigger investment in OpenAI, it builds on an existing partnership between the two firms. This further strengthens the big tech friendship.
Azure OpenAI Service was first introduced in 2021 and has been available to a few customers. It has now been made generally available by the software company. Microsoft’s cloud customers can use the GPT-3.5 language system, which is based on ChatGPT, through the service. In a blog post, the company also said that the Dall-E model for producing pictures from text queries is included. As a result, Azure users can use OpenAI technology in their cloud-based applications.
The Deal of A Decade Is Underway
People familiar with Microsoft’s plans said last week that the company is discussing investing as much as $10 billion in OpenAI. The Redmond, Washington-based software firm will likely put money into the fund over numerous years in that plan. The individuals stated, asking not to be identified discussing a private matter, that the final terms might modify. OpenAI could be valued at about $29 billion, according to sources familiar with the discussions, as reported by Semafor last week. Representatives from Microsoft and OpenAI remain silent on the discussions.
Prior Friendships Culminated in The Revolutionary Technology
Because of a $1 billion investment in 2019, Microsoft is already an OpenAI partner. To compete with Alphabet Inc., Google, Amazon.com Inc., and Meta Platforms Inc., it is now focusing on building an advantage over the most popular and advanced AI systems.
Since its debut at the end of November, ChatGPT has captivated the internet. In less than a week, it attracted its first million users. Imitation of human conversation sparks its potential to replace professional writers, posing a danger to Google’s core search business. Elon Musk and Sam Altman co-founded the organization that created it. It charges developers for the use of its license of tech.
A year of headline-grabbing advances in AI culminated with the new technology. The firm’s Dall-E software automates the creation of art and other images using written instructions. This sparked a heated debate about AIinfusion in creative sectors. OpenAI is already developing a successor GPT-4 model for its natural language processing.
