Microsoft announced the general availability of its Azure OpenAI Service in a blog post. This service enables companies to use large-scale AI models like GPT-3.5, DALL-E 2, and Codex to power their apps.
Accessibility is “limited to clients that fulfill and adhere to the norms for responsible and ethical AI principles that Microsoft has developed and published,” states a news release. Before being granted access to the service, customers must submit an application detailing their intended use case or application.
Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella 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 tweeted, “We’ve learned a lot from the ChatGPT research preview and have been making important updates based on user feedback. ChatGPT will be coming to our API and Microsoft’s Azure OpenAI Service soon.”
Microsoft is in talks to invest about $10 billion in the owner of ChatGPT, OpenAI, which may increase the valuation of the San Francisco-based firm to $29 billion.
