Soon, businesses will be able to use OpenAI’s ChatGPT chatbot in their own ways by accessing it through an API. Microsoft is also adding ChatGPT to the services it offers through Azure OpenAI.
Soon, OpenAI’s ChatGPT chatbot will be available through an API, which stands for “application programming interface.” This could allow businesses to use the chatbot in their own programmes and apps. This could also give OpenAI a way to make money if it charges for the API. In addition to the API, Microsoft enterprise customers will also be able to use ChatGPT from OpenAI as part of the Azure OpenAI service. OpenAI’s AI models can be used in Microsoft’s enterprise customers’ business apps through the OpenAI service on Azure.
What exactly does ChatGPT as an API mean?
In a Twitter announcement, OpenAI provided a link to a form for developers interested in using ChatGPT as an API. The form states, “We have been blown away by the enthusiasm surrounding ChatGPT and the developer community’s request for an API. Please fill out this form if you are interested in a ChatGPT API so that we may keep you informed of our latest services.” Once the API becomes public, other organisations can integrate ChatGPT with their business systems. For instance, delivery companies may utilise ChatGPT to respond to user enquiries via the API.
ChatGPT is a conversational chatbot made with the company’s own GPT-3.5 large language model (LLM). It was made available for testing to the public in November 2022. Since then, it has mostly gone viral, and many people say that this will change how people search for information. Its popularity has also caused Google to issue a “code red.” Google has its own chatbots, but they are not open to the public.
Right now, what makes ChatGPT revolutionary is that it seems to be able to answer a wide range of user questions, from SEO search terms to questions about writing long essays. But experts have also warned that ChatGPT isn’t always right and that many of its answers, which often seem right, are actually wrong.
Still, AI and technology in 2023 are talking about ChatGPT. Sam Altman, the CEO of OpenAI, has also said in the past on Twitter that many of the company’s launches wouldn’t be possible without Microsoft. Last year, he wrote on his blog, “Microsoft and Azure, in particular, don’t get nearly enough credit for what OpenAI launches. They do a huge amount of work to make it happen, and we’re very thankful for that. They have built the best AI infrastructure by far.
But it’s also expensive to run these queries, especially since ChatGPT reached 1 million users in just over a week. In response to a question from Elon Musk, Altman said that the average cost of a chat was “still in the single digits of cents per chat,” but he also said that they will have to find a way to make money from it at some point because the costs of computing are “eye-watering.” Some estimates put the cost at $3 million per month, and since it runs on the Azure cloud platform, that number has probably gone up. The API might be able to help with some of these costs.
With Azure, businesses will be able to use ChatGPT.
OpenAI’s ChatGPT will also be available to Microsoft Azure’s business customers through Azure’s cloud service. An official announcement says that enterprise customers of Microsoft who use its Azure cloud service will soon be able to use the Azure OpenAI service to connect to ChatGPT. Keep in mind that ChatGPT has been trained and uses Azure’s AI infrastructure to make inferences. Microsoft is already in talks with OpenAI about putting $10 billion into the company. Microsoft was also one of the first investors in the company.
Microsoft’s Satya Nadella said in a tweet that ChatGPT is coming soon to the Azure OpenAI Service, which is now available to everyone. This is part of Microsoft’s effort to help customers use the world’s most advanced AI models for their own business needs.
In November 2021, Microsoft was the first company to offer the Azure OpenAI Service. Boyd has also given examples of customers who are already using Azure OpenAI Service, such as startups like Moveworks, Al Jazeera Digital, KPMG, etc. Microsoft’s own products, like GitHub Copilot, which helps developers write better code, are also powered by the Azure OpenAI Service. Microsoft also has Power BI, which uses natural language and GPT-3 to make formulas and expressions automatically. OpenAI’s models are also used by Microsoft Designer, which helps people make content by giving them natural language prompts.
Enterprise customers will still need to fill out an application to use the Azure OpenAI Service. Once they have been given permission to use it, they can log in to the Azure portal to create an Azure OpenAI Service resource and then get started. Before they can use the service, developers will have to apply for access and explain their “intended use case or application,” the post says. “If a policy violation is proven, we may ask the developer to take action right away to stop more abuse.
