Microsoft stands to advantage from GPT-4’s adoption, stated Rishi Jaluria, an analyst at RBC Capital Markets.
The software program maker not only is integrating OpenAI’s most recent technologies into its merchandise: its Azure cloud is powering usage of OpenAI just as spending budget-conscious corporations are scrutinizing IT commit in an uncertain economy, he stated.
