For a while, ChatGPT was trending on Twitter. The artificial intelligence application, which some believe could some day dethrone Google, is being used for all sorts of things, from answering question to writing scripts. It gained over a million users in the first few days after its launch.
According to a recent report by Semafor, Microsoft is now looking to acquire a 49% stake in ChatGPT’s owner, OpenAI, for $10 billion.
The deal includes a certain condition though, which if for Microsoft to receive 75% of OpenAI’s income until full recovery of the initial investment.
It is worth noting that the tech giant had already invested $1 billion in OpenAI a few years ago. Also, ChatGPT is already using Microsoft cloud services for each query, which costs a few cents, but when all put together amounts to large amounts of money to be spent by OpenAI.
According to that same report, Microsoft could be looking to include ChatGPT features in its Office Suite.
OpenAI is also the company behind popular image creation tool Dall-E.
