OpenAI tools including ChatGPT coming to Microsoft Azure

Written by Tue 17 Jan 2023

Microsoft has announced the general availability of OpenAI tools on its Azure cloud computing platform.

The move will monetise the OpenAI tools such as Codex, DALL-E, and GPT-3.5 through a paid professional version.

“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 popular conversational AI chatbot known as ChatGPT that launched in November 2022 will also be added ‘soon’, according to a blog by Microsoft’s Corporate Vice President for its AI platform, Eric Boyd.

Microsoft debuted the Azure OpenAI Service in November 2021 following a $1 billion investment in OpenAI back in 2019, which could be ‘one of the shrewdest bets in tech history’.

“Given that so much of the modern enterprise relies on language to get work done, the possibilities are endless—and we look forward to continued collaboration and partnership with Azure OpenAI Service,” said Vaibhav Nivargi, Chief Technology Officer and Founder at Moveworks.

The tech giant is reportedly planning an additional $10 billion investment to secure a 49% stake and 75% of profits in the Elon Musk-founded startup.

Through the power of AI, Microsoft could enhance its Bing search engine in the hopes of posing a greater threat to Google through more advanced search capabilities.

Microsoft also hopes that general availability of the Azure OpenAI Service will enable customers to tap into the power of large-scale generative AI models.

With much of these tax payments buried in IT systems outside of finance, massive data volumes, and incomplete data attributes, Azure OpenAI Service finds the data relationships to predict tax payments and tax type—making it much easier to validate accuracy and categorize payments by country and tax type,” said Brett Weaver, Partner and Tax ESG Leader at KPMG.

Most of the OpenAI tools, apart from ChatGPT, will be generally available on the Azure OpenAI Service this week.
