Microsoft Azure ChatGPT in OpenAI Service Gets a Local “Private” Version

Microsoft says the Azure ChatGPT integration it brought to Azure OpenAI is now available as a local secure version for enterprises.


seems to have revealed Azure ChatGPT is now available in preview as a local version in Azure OpenAI Service. Azure with ChatGPT can be used to access the popular chatbot in an enterprise setting and have natural conversations with users, answer questions, and generate creative content.

Microsoft first brought ChatGPT to OpenAI Service on the cloud in March. Azure is designed to be easy to use and deploy. The chatbot provides ChatGPT abilities on-premises. Microsoft says the service is a “private” version of ChatGPT that can be run locally with the following benefits:

ChatGPT can learn from any text data, such as books, websites, posts, and more, and can adapt to different domains and styles.

It is possible someone pulled the trigger on the announcement too early.
