Microsoft invests $1B with OpenAI to pursue AI for Azure
Microsoft announced on Monday that it is investing $1 billon with San Francisco-based research firm OpenAI to develop large-scale AI solutions for Microsoft Azure.
The goal of the partnership is to accelerate breakthroughs in AI and power OpenAI’s efforts to create artificial general intelligence (AGI). Along the same line as humans, AGI enables computers to learn new skills and complete various tasks on their own. Currently, AI can learn specific tasks, but can't learn new problems on its own.
Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning: The Brain of a Smart City
The data collected by sensors and IoT devices in the smart city have to, somehow, be used. Information can provide insights to spot patterns and trends. If you have enough of it, aka big data, you can get a pretty accurate picture of whatever it is you’re exploring. For example, smart grids, with enough information at hand, can use data to determine peaks and troughs in electricity need and to then adjust output. This optimizes the use of energy, helping in the drive to sustainability.
