OpenAI’s GPT artificial intelligence API has been in the news recently because of the ChatGPT chatbot that is based on the platform. I recently reported how Microsoft is aiming to integrate ChatAPI into its Bing search engine. Microsoft is a long-time partner of OpenAI and is now also looking into adding the GPT model into Words, Outlook, and PowerPoint.

Specifically, Microsoft wants to fold the AI into its autocomplete software on those Office applications. The company has already been testing the integration by using OpenAI GPT to boost Outlook search results.

Using the AI, Outlook users can find what they want without needing to input keywords from emails. Microsoft says the model can also suggest replies in emails and recommend changes to documents in Word.

Microsoft has a long-standing collaboration and is one of the closest partners of OpenAI. The company a $1 billion investor in the AI research group in 2019, allowing Azure to power all cloud services from the open-source organization. Microsoft also has an exclusive license of the GPT-3 API from OpenAI.

At Ignite 2022 last year, Microsoft announced its latest project with GPT-3.  

Developers using the Microsoft Azure Open AI Service can now access the AI known as DALL∙E 2. This is a model that provides realistic AI images, generating them from art and adding natural language descriptions to them.

To develop the DALL∙E 2 AI, Microsoft built a supercomputer exclusive for OpenAI that runs on Azure. This is the same supercomputer that also trained OpenAI’s GPT-3.
