The AI arms race is heating up as tech giants scramble for an edge in the rapidly evolving landscape of artificial intelligence. Microsoft's recent strategic move to hire Mustafa Suleyman—a pivotal figure in AI innovation known for his co-founding role at DeepMind—to lead its newly formed Microsoft AI division signals an aggressive push into AI integration across consumer products.

NVIDIA continues making headlines with its advancements in AI software,

as CEO of Microsoft AI. I’ll be leading all consumer AI products and research, including Copilot, Bing and Edge.

Microsoft has poured billions into its partnership with OpenAI and recently struck a deal with AI startup Mistral. The formation of a new AI team doesn’t mean Microsoft has forgotten about these partnerships. Microsoft says it “will continue to build AI infrastructure inclusive of custom systems and silicon work in support of OpenAI’s foundation model roadmap,” as well as “build products on top of their foundation models.”

Built on top of the NVIDIA CUDA® platform, the catalog of cloud-native microservices includes NVIDIA NIM microservices for optimized inference on more than two dozen popular AI models from NVIDIA and its partner ecosystem. In addition, NVIDIA accelerated software development kits, libraries and tools can now be accessed as NVIDIA CUDA-X™ microservices for retrieval-augmented generation (RAG), guardrails, data processing, HPC and more. NVIDIA also separately announced over two dozen healthcare NIM and CUDA-X microservices.
