OpenAI + Microsoft Azure

Microsoft is partnering with Elon Musk’s OpenAI to protect humanity’s best interests - The Verge

"Microsoft’s artificial intelligence research division has announced a partnership with the Elon Musk-backed nonprofit OpenAI. As part of the deal, OpenAI will get access to Microsoft’s latest virtual machine technology for running large-scale AI training and simulation exercises, while Microsoft will have cutting-edge research conducted on its Azure cloud platform. OpenAI, founded last December by Musk and Y Combinator president Sam Altman, is focused on developing AI that has long-term positive impacts on society, instead of software that could potentially be used for harm or is solely profit-motivated in its creation."
