Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella announced that ChatGPT, a cutting-edge language model developed by OpenAI, is now generally available on Azure, allowing customers to leverage the power of advanced AI models for their own business needs. This service is now widely available, allowing customers to harness the power of advanced AI models for their own business requirements.
Businesses can now access Azure OpenAI Service, a powerful platform for innovation and problem-solving. As part of Microsoft’s commitment to the democratization of AI and its partnership with OpenAI, the service provides access to some of the world’s most advanced AI models, including GPT-3.5, Codex, and DALL•E 2. These models are supported by Microsoft Azure’s robust, enterprise-grade capabilities and optimized AI infrastructure, enabling businesses to create cutting-edge applications.
Additionally, ChatGPT, a fine-tuned version of GPT-3.5 that is trained and runs on Azure AI infrastructure, will be made available through the Azure OpenAI Service in the near future.
Azure is the only public cloud provider in the world that provides AI supercomputers with exceptional scale-up and scale-out capabilities. Its one-of-a-kind design, which combines cutting-edge GPU and networking technologies, delivers superior performance and scalability for the most demanding AI training and inference workloads.
We launched Azure OpenAI Service in November 2021 to give customers access to large-scale generative AI models, as well as enterprise-grade security, reliability, compliance, data privacy, and Responsible AI capabilities of our Azure cloud and computing infrastructure.
We’ve been blown away by the variety of applications our customers have been able to build with Azure OpenAI Service since then. These include using the service to generate content that improves the shopping experience for customers and summarizing customer service tickets, allowing employees to focus on more critical tasks.
Al Jazeera Digital is constantly exploring new ways to use technology to support journalism and better serve our audience. Azure OpenAI Service has the potential to enhance our content production in several ways, including summarization and translation, selection of topics, AI tagging, content extraction, and style guide rule application. We are excited to see this service go to general availability so it can help us further contextualize our reporting by conveying the opinion and the other opinion. said Jason McCartney, Vice President of Engineering at Al Jazeera.
The general availability of Azure OpenAI Service is a significant achievement for our customers and for Azure. This service provides businesses and developers with access to advanced AI models at scale, utilizing Azure’s industry-leading uptime. It is the same service used by Microsoft to power its own products, such as GitHub Copilot, an AI programming assistant that helps developers write better code, Power BI, which utilizes GPT-3-powered natural language generation to automatically create formulas and expressions, and Microsoft Designer, which allows creators to build visually striking content using natural language prompts. These innovations all rely on Azure’s purpose-built, AI-optimized infrastructure. Furthermore, Azure is also the core computing power behind OpenAI API’s models for research and development, and production use.
We are proud of the AI models we are currently employing and delivering to our customers, and we believe they will enable businesses and individuals to develop new and innovative solutions. We are thrilled to be at the forefront of these advancements with our customers and look forward to expanding the benefits of these models in 2023 and beyond.
