Developed a company Microsoft Technology solutions artificial intelligence Low cost, which requires little computing power and financial resources, and has also developed models that are efficient and cost-effective, according to what was reported by Reuters.
This initiative includes the formation of a new team called “GenAI” to build what the company calls small language models. The team is focusing on creating conversational AI models that have few computational requirements compared to current technology. Small language models aim to provide conversational capabilities similar to large language models, such as On GBwith low needs.
This would allow Microsoft's artificial intelligence products and services to reduce costs and carbon footprint compared to externally developed alternatives, as Microsoft aims to make these artificial intelligence solutions easily available through its platform.
Microsoft has previously relied heavily on OpenAI in its developments in the field of artificial intelligence, using technologies such as the GPT4 language model in the Bing search engine and the DAL3 image generator in Bing Image Creator. “.
The GenAI team aims to create artificial intelligence that matches or exceeds the functionality of models provided by companies like OpenAI, while making it specific to small sizes. In contrast, the formation of the Generative AI team, GenAI, signals a potential shift toward greater autonomy in AI development.
Microsoft's quest to develop small-scale, affordable artificial intelligence technology opens new horizons for the company to provide its own solutions, reducing dependence on external companies.
Microsoft launched the 3D meetings feature within the Teams platform, and the company’s mixed reality platform Mesh came out of the testing phase, and the company integrated it into Teams to allow people to gather in virtual spaces with or without virtual reality headsets, and the software giant officially brought the metaverse to the workplace with the full launch of the spaces. Virtual meetings.
“Meetings in Mesh give employees a sense of co-presence, even when they are geographically distant, with features like spatial audio that add a sense of immersion,” Microsoft says.
The Mesh mixed reality platform experience within Teams is very similar to the enterprise version of Alt Space VR, the social virtual reality platform that Microsoft acquired in 2017 and shut down a year ago.
Mesh 3D Meetings in Teams works best with VR headsets, as Microsoft currently supports Meta's Quest headset.
Users can participate in 3D virtual meetings, and the spatial audio feature simulates the ability to have private conversations you have in the office by being away from other coworkers in the virtual space.
