Microsoft Azure Government users can now access generative artificial intelligence capabilities designed to support a range of use cases, from enhancing productivity to generating data-driven insights to meet mission needs.
The Microsoft Azure OpenAI Service uses a new architecture that provides government agencies with secure access to large language models in Azure Government’s commercial environment, Bill Chappell chief technology officer for strategic missions and technologies at Microsoft, wrote in a blog post published Wednesday.
OpenAI’s large language models, including GPT-4, GPT-3 and Embeddings, are available to government customers through the Azure OpenAI Service’s REST application programming interfaces.
Chappell said users can adapt these models to accelerate and streamline content generation and summarization, optimize semantic search and simplify natural language-to-code translation.
Government agencies can also access the service through Python SDK or Microsoft’s web-based interface in the Azure AI Studio.
