OpenAI’s ChatGPT, which has gained significant attention, is now available in a form that is more suited for business use.
Microsoft today declared that ChatGPT is now available to be used through the Azure OpenAI Service, which Microsoft has created for firms to be offered access to the OpenAI technologies, as well as governance and compliance features. For access to this service, customers must already be connected to Microsoft, and they must submit an application via the specified link.
ChatGPT is just one of multiple OpenAI-constructed techniques offered through Azure OpenAI Service, such as GPT-3.5 which can create text, Codex with the capacity to generate code, and DALL-E 2 with its image-generating capabilities. Microsoft has a close collaboration with OpenAI, including having made numerous investments into the organization and agreeing to a contract that allows it to profit from OpenAI’s Artificial Intelligence exploration.
Microsoft reported that the Azure OpenAI Service has more than one thousand businesses enrolled, having yielded positive results.
On March 13th, billing for using ChatGPT will start, at an amount of $0.002 for every 1,000 tokens. This is equivalent to about 750 words, thereby staying in line with the charged the price for the ChatGPT API, which was released on March 1. Remember that distinction, as ChatGPT desegregates the words into tokens, such as splitting “fantastic” into “fan, tas, and tic”.
Eric Boyd, the CVP of AI Platform at Microsoft, mentioned in a blog entry that Azure OpenAI Service customers have the capability to modify ChatGPT’s responses to be compatible with their company’s beliefs. It is a notable remark since people have experiencedasking ChatGPT questions that led to inappropriate replies such as racism and sexism, making up information without specifying that it is fictional, and evading particular strict security measures.
Developers can incorporate their own specially designed ChatGPT-driven experiences right into their applications, ranging from enhancing existing bots to answer queries they weren’t programmed for, summarizing call center dialogues to make consumer support resolutions more effective, creating personalized offers with new advertising material, and automating claim handling, according to Boyd in his writing.
Despite the various issues related to ChatGPT, its adoption has proceeded at a fast pace. OpenAI has not revealed the exact numbers of API users, but data from December shows that the ChatGPT app which targets the end-users had a estimated base of over 100 million monthly users. Several big names such as Snap and Quizlet have already implemented the app, or are planning to do so soon. As an example, Instacart has declared that it will make use of ChatGPT for generating As. Instacart has introduced a new feature for their customers that will utilize data from their retail partners to give accessible responses. Additionally, Office Depot is constructing a chatbot fueled by ChatGPT to help out a few of their internal business sectors such as human resources.
People working in businesses seem to have taken a liking to ChatGPT, which is a positive sign for the launch of Microsoft’s Azure OpenAI Service. Fishbowl did a study of professionals at big firms like Bank of America, Amazon, and McKinsey, which found that almost 30% of respondents used ChatGPT to help them with duties like marketing, programming, consulting, accounting and instruction.
Some employers have been against this, such as Wells Fargo and other companies who have supposedly set limitations on the use of ChatGPT due to worries about efficiency and conformity.
