Microsoft is gearing up to introduce a new, internally developed AI language model known as MAI-1, aiming to compete with the likes of Google and OpenAI, according to a report from The Information.[1]

The project is led by Mustafa Suleyman, co-founder of Google DeepMind and former CEO of AI startup Inflection. The exact purpose of MAI-1 remains undetermined, but its unveiling is expected at Microsoft's Build developer conference later this month.

Despite Microsoft's silence on the matter, insights gleaned from the report indicate substantial investments in infrastructure, including Nvidia's GPUs and vast datasets, to bolster MAI-1's development. Projected to boast approximately 500 billion parameters, MAI-1 aims to rival OpenAI's GPT-4, which reportedly houses one trillion parameters.

Suleyman's appointment as the head of Microsoft's consumer AI unit in March signaled the company's strategic pivot towards AI innovation.
