Microsoft plans to sell new version of Databricks

Share post:

Microsoft is reportedly planning to sell a new version of Databricks software that helps customers make AI apps for their businesses.

The tech giant plans to sell it through its Azure cloud-server unit, which will help companies make AI models from scratch or repurpose open-source models as an alternative to licensing OpenAI’s proprietary ones.

This move suggests that Microsoft is moving away from OpenAI and looking for other partners in the generative AI space. This is not the first time that Microsoft has taken steps to distance itself from OpenAI.

In the last few months, the company has also partnered with IBM Consulting to help clients implement and scale Azure OpenAI Service, and it has also released its own version of ChatGPT, called Azure ChatGPT.

Microsoft’s partnership with OpenAI was announced in January 2023. The partnership was seen as a major coup for OpenAI, as it gave the company access to Microsoft’s vast resources and customer base. In recent months, there have been concerns about the security of OpenAI’s models, and Microsoft has also been criticized for its high prices.

There are a few possible reasons why Microsoft is moving away from OpenAI. One possibility is that Microsoft is unhappy with OpenAI’s pricing. OpenAI’s models are some of the most expensive on the market, and this may be a barrier for some businesses.

Another possibility is that Microsoft is concerned about OpenAI’s security practices. In recent months, there have been concerns about the security of OpenAI’s models, and this may have made Microsoft hesitant to rely on them.
