Microsoft To Increase Its OpenAI Stake

In addition to the $1B Microsoft already invested in OpenAI, it's tossing in another $10B, giving the startup, with no real revenue, a valuation of $23B, and also giving Microsoft almost half ownership of OpenAI.

It's a bit more complicated than you think. In certain things MS has partnered with Google such as the standard that tags data within html code. They both had got fed up with the standards associations.

Why is this significant? Well AI depends on such data searches within html code.

It's because you don't know what you're talking about, and I've shown you, every step of the way.

@Northwest no, you absolutely have not!

Yet that is beside the point. You can't seem to even agree to disagree! It's you that keeps on wanting to insult others.

I don't question you simply because I do want to get along with you!

Look, not one thing you said here, in addition to being wrong, has one thing to do with AI. I've given you enough leeway here, but if you can't stick to the topic, don't post.

How Open will it be with Micro$oft involved that much?

@startingover23 That would definitely be an issue. OpenAI fell into Microsoft's lap, as a way to finally broke through Google's technical superiority over search. If Google jumps aboard, it loses its search advantage.

@Northwest I worry how open the ai will be, and how much it will be biased towards Micro$oft partners.
Bad, bad, bad...

Getting into bed with the Devil, has never turned out well.

@Thomas52 Supposedly a couple of other major players will be involved, including Khosla Ventures are joining the frenzy, but they don't have Microsoft's deep pockets. Generally speaking though, OpenAI now acts as a sort of "clearing house" kind of like the HuffPost, so there may be enough protections, to prevent this from getting monopolized by Microsoft, but Microsoft can be fastest to implement through its entire product line, making the switch from Microsoft Office, the standard for just about everyone (and Microsoft bread and butter), to something else.

@Northwest It will certainly be interesting to see how this develops. AI is likely to be a game changer with pros and cons, and like the internet before it, it will be down to the user to employ their own judgements in how they do or do not use the tools it will offer.

@Thomas52 This is behind a pay wall: https://www.nytimes.com/2023/01/23/opinion/ted-lieu-ai-chatgpt-congress.html
