The leading producer of processors for artificial intelligence, Nvidia (NVDA), is joining forces with the buzziest name in generative AI software, Microsoft (MSFT). NVDA stock and MSFT stock have surged on AI news this year.
Nvidia announced Tuesday that it is collaborating with Microsoft to accelerate enterprise-ready generative AI. The technology can create content, including written articles, images, videos and music, from simple descriptive phrases. Enterprises can use generative AI to improve customer service, market research and other applications.
The graphics-chip maker said it is integrating its Nvidia AI Enterprise software into Microsoft’s Azure Machine Learning offering to help enterprises with their AI initiatives. Azure is Microsoft’s cloud computing platform. Further, Microsoft has been investing heavily in artificial intelligence, including its partnership with OpenAI.
The Nvidia-Microsoft integration will allow Azure customers to quickly build, deploy and manage customized applications using the more than 100 Nvidia AI frameworks and development tools.
