Oracle and Microsoft join with OpenAI for AI expansion

Oracle and Microsoft have announced a partnership with OpenAI, the creator of ChatGPT. The objective is to boost AI capabilities and innovations. Oracle Cloud Infrastructure’s strong infrastructure will enable the collaboration to meet the rising demands for powerful computational resources.

Through this partnership, Oracle and Microsoft will extend Microsoft Azure AI to OCI, i.e., Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. For OpenAI, this partnership presents an opportunity to expand operations to address the needs of a broader client base.

Sam Altman, the CEO of OpenAI, addressed this development, saying, “We are delighted to be working with Microsoft and Oracle. OCI will extend Azure’s platform and enable OpenAI to continue to scale.”

Larry Ellison, the Chairman and Chief Technology Officer of Oracle, has also addressed the development. Larry has said that many players in the industry choose Oracle because its AI infrastructure is cost-effective and comparatively faster. Ellison has further stated that the race to build the greatest language model has started, only fueling unlimited demand for Oracle’s Gen2 AI infrastructure.

OpenAI will officially join thousands of AI innovators who run their AI workloads on the OCI AI infrastructure. Others on the list are Modal, Suno, Reka, MosaicML, Together AI, Twelve Labs, and NVIDIA.

Microsoft’s current partnership comes after it announced investing $1.5 billion in the UAE’s G42. The goal is to boost AI development and innovation in the UAE and make the region an AI hub.

This is not OpenAI’s first partnership. It recently joined hands with Apple to power the capabilities of Apple’s devices. On the first day of Apple’s Worldwide Developers’ Conference 2024, the company expressed its ultimate goal of enhancing the user experience. To improve Siri, ChatGPT and Apple will collaborate.

This is just the beginning for Apple, as the company has multiple plans in the pipeline. It includes enhancing email content with sorted priorities, upgrading the iPad calculator, and boosting Apple Intelligence. The partnership between Apple and OpenAI attracted criticism from Elon Musk. He was bold enough to share a meme on X to highlight that Apple would indirectly extract user data and fetch it to OpenAI without control over its usage.

He further stated that he would ban Apple products throughout his office if the integration were successful. It remains to be seen if Elon Musk will take any action. Meanwhile, reports surfacing indicate that he has dropped his lawsuit against OpenAI. Musk had filed a lawsuit, claiming that the non-profit organization had transitioned into a profit-driven organization with the release of GPT-4.

Oracle and Microsoft are certain to move forward with their partnership with OpenAI. Both companies will extend Microsoft Azure AI to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure while OpenAI continues to scale its operations.
