Microsoft Invests $1 Billion in Elon Musk-Backed AI Company

and OpenAI, two companies thinking deeply about the role of AI in the world and how to build secure, trustworthy and ethical AI to serve the public, have partnered to further extend Microsoft Azure’s capabilities in large-scale AI systems.

The partnership covers the following: The companies will focus on building a computational platform in Azure of unprecedented scale, which will train and run increasingly advanced AI models, include hardware technologies that build on Microsoft’s supercomputing technology and adhere to the two companies’

Over the past decade, innovative applications of deep neural networks coupled with increasing computational power have led to continuous AI breakthroughs in areas such as vision, speech, language processing, translation, robotic control, and even gaming.

Though these advances are across very different fields like vision (2012), simple video games (2013), machine translation (2014), complex board games (2015), speech synthesis (2016), image generation (2017), robotic control (2018), and writing text (2019), they are all powered by the same approach: innovative applications of deep neural networks coupled with increasing computational power.

Modern AI systems work well for the specific problem on which they’ve been trained, but getting AI systems to help address some of the hardest problems facing the world today will require generalization and deep mastery of multiple AI technologies.

OpenAI and Microsoft’s vision is for artificial general intelligence to work with people to help solve currently intractable multidisciplinary problems, including global challenges such as climate change, more personalized healthcare, and education.

How OpenAI, Founded to Keep Powerful A.I. Out of Corporate Hands, Got Into Bed With Microsoft

OpenAI was founded less than four years ago as a valiant stand against the idea that powerful new technology must inevitably be controlled by giant corporations.The then non-profit's goal: Develop artificial intelligence 'the way that is most likely to benefit humanity as a whole, unconstrained by a need to generate financial return.'

We believe AI should be an extension of individual human wills and, in the spirit of liberty, as broadly and evenly distributed as possible.'Despite OpenAI's feel-good philosophy, some people are skeptical about whether the organization is the proper vehicle for democratizing the benefits of A.I.

In one of its best-known feats, it created five separate A.I.s capable of playing a complex video game called Dota2 as a team, so well, in fact, that it beat some of the world's top human teams.

is to keep increasing the volume of data being used in its experiments, requiring ever more servers to train its algorithms.Also expensive are the human brains behind the artificial ones—the top echelon of machine learning experts command mid to high six- or even seven-figure salaries.

(Ilya Sutskever, the brilliant young machine learning expert OpenAI hired as its research director, was paid more than $1.9 million in 2016, according to OpenAI's tax disclosures.) Even with a $1 billion endowment, OpenAI felt it needed more money.

labs, many of which are part of companies with massive cloud computing businesses and therefore don't have to pay market rates for server time.What's more, Musk, who had been the biggest initial donor, reduced his commitment to OpenAI in early 2018, stepping down from the organization's board.

applications presented Musk with a conflict-of-interest.To compete with big corporations and startups with huge reserves of venture capital funding, OpenAI's board made a fateful decision: if it couldn't beat the corporates, it would join them.

In response to emailed questions, Greg Brockman, the former chief technology officer at payments startup Stripe who is now OpenAI's chairman, said Microsoft 'owns a significant but not majority' stake in the for-profit entity.

Microsoft has said its Azure cloud computing infrastructure will become the preferred platform for OpenAI's research, so some of its $1 billion cash investment may return to Microsoft in the form of cloud purchases.
