  • Microsoft this week gained an exclusive license to OpenAI’s GPT-3, the state-of-the-art language model garnering attention across the tech industry.
  • Other companies will still be able to access the model through an Azure-hosted API, but only Microsoft will have access to GPT-3’s code and underlying advances.
  • The deal follows Microsoft’s $1 billion investment last year in San Francisco-based OpenAI, which consists of the OpenAI Inc nonprofit founded four years ago and the for-profit OpenAI LP.
  • The implications of giving a tech giant such as Microsoft an exclusive license to GPT-3 raises questions and potential concerns.
