Microsoft Plans to Launch ChatGPT Via Azure

Microsoft is planning to launch ChatGPT as a cloud service in Azure. For now, ChatGPT will only be available selectively as a preview. This launch is targeted mostly toward corporates, making it easier for them to embed ChatGPT in their day-to-day business processes and use the bot to generate texts for emails and blogs or to chat directly with users.

Many businesses have already been invited to test the integration.

ODP Corporation (the parent company of Office Depot and OfficeMax), Icertis (contract management software provider), and Singapore’s Smart Nation Digital Government Office are already using the platform.

Eric Boyd, corporate vice president for Microsoft’s AI Platform, further elaborated that launching ChatGPT through Azure will help developers to integrate a custom AI technology into their existing user-focused chat tools, taking it to the next level.

This integration will help the chat tools offer customized solutions to the users, answer unexpected questions and automate a lot of processes such as claim processing and recapping conversation.

However, since Microsoft has already invested millions into OpenAI, it’s quite natural for them to boast about these platforms. Only time can tell if they’re actually as efficient as they are marketed to be.

To make up for its investment, Redmond has been rapidly integrating machine learning with most of its cloud services. And for that very reason, the Azure OpenAI service was launched in 2021. And as per reports, this service has had quite a success in the past two years.

Eric Boyd reports that more than 1000 companies, such as Moveworks, KPMG, and Al Jazeera, are already using their service.

The pricing of their new service is based on tokens. For $0.002, you get up to 1000 tokens which roughly adds up to 750 words. However, the way ChatGPT interprets words and tokens is slightly different. For example, let’s take the word “Improper”. When calculating tokens, ChatGPT will break it down into its syllabus “im”, “pro”, “per” and count each syllable as a token.

Although some selected users are allowed to test ChatGPT for free now, they’ll be charged from 13th March onwards.

An attempt to overcome Google’s Monopoly

The integration of ChatGPT with Azure is seen as another attack on Google’s monopoly over the industry. First, Microsoft integrated ChatGPT with its browsers Bing and Edge to compete with Google Chrome, and now the Azure-ChatGPT collaboration is aimed to take over Google’s B2B customer base.

Although ChatGPT is far from perfect at the moment, it doesn’t seem to dampen Microsoft’s enthusiastic venture of expanding this AI software into all its services.

We recognize that any innovation in AI must be done responsibly. We have taken an iterative approach to large models, working closely with our partner OpenAI and our customers to carefully assess use cases, learn, and address potential risks.Eric Boyd

To further mitigate unwanted responses from ChatGPT, Microsoft is making every company that plans to access it via Azure give them an outline of how they intend to use it. It’s also actively working on filtering out abusive content before pushing out the software in the mass markets.
