Microsoft will host a major news conference on February 7th. Right after Google made its ChatGPT rival official, the software behemoth is today formally announcing an in-person event that will take place at the company’s Redmond headquarters. Invitations to the event were mailed out last week.
Microsoft isn’t giving many hints about the event, which begins on February 7th at 10 AM Pacific/1 PM Eastern. However, it’s likely that the business will concentrate on its alleged ChatGPT integration into Bing and its more extensive cooperation with OpenAI.
One can expect a number of significant announcements since the invitation states that Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella will discuss some progress on a few exciting projects.
The invitation comes just after Microsoft extended its collaboration with OpenAI in a $10 billion deal, making it OpenAI’s sole cloud partner. Microsoft’s cloud computing resources will power all OpenAI workloads across products, API services, and research.
Additionally, Microsoft’s event comes shortly after Google unveiled Bard, a rival to ChatGPT. Only a small group of people are now testing the “experimental conversational AI service,” but Google pledges to make it more widely available to the public in the upcoming weeks.
