Microsoft to Provide New Funding for OpenAI?

Microsoft’s longtime collaborator, OpenAI Inc., is looking for more cash from the tech giant.

Rumours are circulating that Microsoft is currently in advanced talks with OpenAI about increasing its investment in the organisation. The amount of funding the group is requesting is unknown. It is also not known what, if anything, OpenAI will give Microsoft in return. 

What we do know is that the company is now valued at about $20 billion after the company sold some stock to existing investors in 2021.

Microsoft invested $1 billion in OpenAI in 2019, enabling Azure to run the open-source AI provider’s cloud services. Since then, Microsoft has obtained an exclusive l from OpenAI for the GPT-3 API.

Many may see the move as a counter-threat to Google who are ramping up their AI offerings and new competition coming in fast from Stability.Ai and Midjourney who are all gaining traction after DALL-E 2 took generative art mainstream. 

The field of artificial intelligence is growing quickly, and IDC experts forecast that in 2026, it will be a $900 billion industry, from there the worldwide industry would expand by an average of 18.6 per cent annually. OpenAI is concentrating on artificial general intelligence (AGI), which aims to develop cognitive skills in software such that an AGI-based system could discover a solution to a challenging intellectual issue in a manner akin to humans.

What Is Artifical Inteligence?

Artificial Intelligence is the use of computers to mimic human thinking. This term is often a buzzword, so it can be hard to define and understand. But artificial intelligence is a broad term that can be used to describe everything from a computer’s ability to play chess to self-driving cars. The truth is that artificial intelligence is a complex field and it’s constantly growing. This article will provide an overview of what artificial intelligence is, what it can do, and how it could impact our future.

Where do we start?

Artificial intelligence is the intelligence of machines and software in the form of software agents and intelligent machines. It is an umbrella term for a set of technologies that encompasses the theory and practice of making intelligent machines, or more specifically computer software that perceives its environment and takes actions which maximize its chance of achieving its goals.

How does Artificial Intelligence work?

Artificial Intelligence is a type of intelligence that a machine uses to complete tasks that would otherwise require human intelligence. The term is most commonly used to refer to computers or software that can complete tasks that would normally require human intelligence. In order to achieve this, the machine uses algorithms as well as pattern recognition.

What are some applications of Artificial Intelligence?

As Artificial intelligence evolves it wl be systematically replacing jobs and all forms of mainstream labour that require human intelligence from the white collar office to construction workers. AI can be used to improve business processes, make scientific discoveries, or help with medical diagnoses. It is a recent development in computer science and is still a controversial topic that is expanding over time.

This article is an introduction to artificial intelligence and some of the applications of the technology used in the field of AI. If you are interested in learning more about artificial intelligence, I recommend you visit the MIT website for the latest developments in the field.
