"Today, I'm very excited to announce that Microsoft is teaming up with OpenAI to exclusively license GPT-3," Kevin Scott, Microsoft's Executive Vice President and chief technology officer, wrote on the Microsoft blog. Pretty soon, Microsoft Word documents will write themselves, and AI bots will read them on our behalf, giving us more time to improve our Animal Crossing islands.
The scope of commercial and creative potential that can be unlocked through the GPT-3 model is profound, with genuinely novel capabilities – most of which we haven't even imagined yet. Directly aiding human creativity and ingenuity in areas like writing and composition, describing and summarizing large blocks of long-form data (including code), converting natural language to another language – the possibilities are limited only by the ideas and scenarios that we bring to the table.
While we'll be hard at work utilizing the capabilities of GPT-3 in our own products, services and experiences to benefit our customers, we'll also continue to work with OpenAI to keep looking forward: leveraging and democratizing the power of their cutting-edge AI research as they continue on their mission to build safe artificial general intelligence. That future will be what we make of it – and I believe that we're on the right track.
