Azure OpenAI (Microsoft)

Microsoft's LLM equivalent to OpenAI is Azure OpenAI. It is a collaboration between Microsoft Azure and OpenAI, a leading research organization in artificial intelligence. Azure OpenAI offers a variety of LLM services, including:

  • GPT-3, a large language model with 175 billion parameters.

  • DialoGPT, a conversational AI model that can hold natural conversations.

  • Dactyl, a model that can control physical robots.

Azure OpenAI is available through the Azure Marketplace. Developers can use it to build AI-powered applications in a variety of industries, including healthcare, finance, and customer service.

In addition to Azure OpenAI, Microsoft also has its own LLM research project called Semantic Kernel. Semantic Kernel is an open-source SDK that lets developers easily combine AI services like OpenAI, Azure OpenAI, and Hugging Face with conventional programming languages like C# and Python. By doing so, developers can create AI apps that combine the best of both worlds.

Here is a table that summarizes the differences between Azure OpenAI and Semantic Kernel:

Bing, Microsoft's search engine to rival Googla uses OpenAI's GPT-4 Large Language Model. GPT-4 is a 175 billion parameter model that was trained on a massive dataset of text and code. It can generate text, translate languages, write different kinds of creative content, and answer your questions in an informative way.

Bing uses GPT-4 to power a variety of features, including:

Query Suggestions: Bing uses GPT-4 to suggest relevant queries as you type. Autocomplete: Bing uses GPT-4 to complete your queries as you type. Personalized Results: Bing uses GPT-4 to personalize your search results based on your interests.

GPT-4 has helped to make Bing a more powerful and personalized search engine. It is likely that Bing will continue to use GPT-4 and other LLMs in the future to improve its search results and features.
