Microsoft will exclusively license OpenAI's GPT-3 model to expand the Azure-powered AI platform. OpenAI's GPT-3 model is an autoregressive language model that can create human-like text. As highlighted in a recent Microsoft blog post, GPT-3 is the largest and most advanced language model in the world. It utilizes 175 billion parameters and is trained on Azure's AI supercomputer.
Azure's supercomputer is one of the most powerful in the world, and it is used to train OpenAI's large AI models.
By leveraging GPT-3, Microsoft aims to create new products, services, and experiences powered by AI. Microsoft sees the GPT-3 model greatly influencing the commercial and creative sectors. Microsoft highlights a few potential uses for the technology:
Directly aiding human creativity and ingenuity in areas like writing and composition, describing and summarizing large blocks of long-form data (including code), converting natural language to another language – the possibilities are limited only by the ideas and scenarios that we bring to the table.
According to Microsoft, this is "only the beginning of the beginning" and many of the ways that this technology will be utilized "haven't even [been] imagined yet."
