Microsoft has expanded its ongoing partnership with San Francisco-based artificial intelligence research firm OpenAI. AI Farm’s groundbreaking GPT-3 language model new exclusive licenseAutomatically generated text program that appeared as The most sophisticated in the industry..
Both companies are already OpenAI Ongoing Azure cloud computing contractAzure is a platform that opens AI has access to the vast computing resources needed to train many of its models. Microsoft made a big $ 1 billion investment last year Become the exclusive cloud provider for OpenAI. Now, with the acquisition of GPT-3 rights, Microsoft is giving yet another signal of high confidence in OpenAI research.
In July, OpenAI released GPT-3, the third iteration of the ever-growing language model. This program and previous iterations helped create some of the most fascinating AI language experiments to date. It also causes lively discussions around Ethics of a powerful AI program In OpenAI, it can be used for more malicious purposes Initially refused to publish research on models Afraid it will be abused.
“Unlike most AI systems designed for one use case, the OpenAI API today provides a general-purpose” text-in, text-out “interface that users try on virtually every English task. can do. GPT-3 is the most powerful model behind the current API, with 175 billion parameters. OpenAI Blog post about partnership with Microsoft..
