Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella has announced that his company plans to integrate AI tools like Chat GPT into all of its products and make them available as platforms for other companies to build on.
Nadella confirmed – during his participation in the annual event of the World Economic Forum in the Swiss resort of Davos – that the company is moving quickly to market tools from “Open AI”, which is the research laboratory behind chatbots “Chatbot” and “ChatGBT”. and the Dall-E2 image generator, which converts language prompts into new images.
The company said – earlier – that it is giving more customers access to the software behind these tools through the Azure cloud computing platform.
“The goal is to make (Azure) a place for anyone who thinks about artificial intelligence, that is, all companies and end users, including making GPT available to business users,” Nadella declared, adding that “every Microsoft product will have some intelligence capabilities.” itself to completely transform the product.
Microsoft is in advanced talks to increase its investment in OpenAI, the industry leader in artificial intelligence technology.
The center is in talks to sell the existing shares in a tender that would value the company at around $29 billion.
“The new excitement around the tools builds on the rapid growth in their capabilities in the past year, which is expected to continue,” Nadella said, speaking in Davos. “I do not claim that this is the latest innovation in the field of artificial intelligence,” he explained.
The Microsoft CEO was also optimistic about the broader economic potential of tools like ChatGPT, which can generate fast-voice text based on short queries or prompts.
“Such tools are essential to boosting human productivity and will increase economic growth and wages for low-income jobs,” he said. “We need something that really shifts the productivity curve in order to achieve real economic growth,” he added.
He continued, “People with office jobs are engaged in what is called ‘knowledge work’ and should embrace the new tools, rather than assuming they will steal their jobs.”
Nadella cited the example of software developers who are currently using tools to help them write code, noting that “the best way to prepare for it is not to bet on this technology that helps you in your job and business.”
Regarding the impact of these tools on a newspaper such as The Wall Street Journal, Nadella said, “I think they will be able to write great articles in the future based on (GPT) as a language model that uses deep learning to produce human-like text from Developed by the American company (Open AI).
His deal will boost the competition
Nadella defended the software giant’s $75 billion acquisition of the gaming company Activision Blizzard, especially after it came under fire from antitrust authorities on both sides of the Atlantic, saying that “his deal will enhance competition.”
Earlier, “Microsoft,” said that it is a small player in the development of video games and is trying to increase the size of its game development studio, and will not prefer its own games to its “Xbox” consoles.
The US Federal Trade Commission filed a lawsuit to block the deal, while the European Union opened an extensive investigation around it.
