In an interview with the Monetary Occasions, Altman stated his firm’s partnership with Microsoft’s chief govt Satya Nadella was “working rather well” and that he anticipated “to boost much more over time” from the tech big amongst different traders, to maintain up with the punishing prices of constructing extra refined AI fashions.

Microsoft earlier this yr invested $10 billion in OpenAI as a part of a “multiyear” settlement that valued the San Francisco-based firm at $29 billion, in accordance with individuals conversant in the talks.

Requested if Microsoft would preserve investing additional, Altman stated: “I’d hope so.” He added: “There’s an extended approach to go, and lots of compute to construct out between right here and AGI . . . coaching bills are simply big.”
