Microsoft will soon add ChatGPT to Azure, confirms CEO Satya Nadella
Microsoft said on Monday that it will add OpenAI’s popular artificial intelligence bot ChatGPT to its Azure cloud services in the near future.
The company has also announced the wide availability of its Azure OpenAI Service, which provides users with access to a variety of AI tools for use in their own applications, this distinction is expected to create new demand.
Microsoft chairman and CEO Satya Nadella also tweeted, “ChatGPT is coming soon to the Azure OpenAI Service, which is now generally available, as we help customers apply the world’s most advanced AI models to their own business imperatives.”
OpenAI, a startup backed by Microsoft, who’s futuristic ChatGPT chatbot has gripped Silicon Valley, is responsible for the program’s immense popularity, and the company is reportedly expanding access to the platform. The announcement comes amid reports that the company is looking to add to the $1 billion stake in OpenAI already announced in 2019.
According to reports by Reuters, Microsoft might potentially invest $10 billion, although there has been no formal word on this, yet.
ChatGPT, has been a buzzword since its release in November 2022 by OpenAI. It is a text-based chatbot that can generate prose, poetry, or computer code on demand.
Microsoft is opening up access to its ChatGPT service, which is driven by generative artificial intelligence that creates original content based on extensive data science training. In a blog post, Microsoft said that it will soon make ChatGPT accessible through its cloud service.
The company has also claimed that it is screening client apps for malicious intent and that its filters may detect and remove false data entered by humans or generated by technology.
Though it’s state-of-the-art technology, this model is far from ideal. There are some shortcomings as well. Despite this, venture capitalists have poured a lot of money into firms that are developing such software. This is despite the fact that overall financing for businesses is at an all-time low.
