AI craze hits crypto-currency
The impressive price performance of AI-related crypto tokens comes amid growing interest in the capabilities of artificial intelligence technologies, including reports last month that Microsoft has invested an additional $10 billion in OpenAI, the development studio behind the popular artificial intelligence tool ChatGPT.
The deal gives a boost to Azure, Microsoft’s cloud computing platform, which will remain the exclusive cloud provider for all of OpenAI’s research, API and product workloads.
Microsoft also plans to “deploy OpenAI’s models in its consumer and enterprise products and introduce new categories of digital experiences based on OpenAI technology,” the IT giant said in a blog post.
According to a recent JP Morgan report, more than half of institutional traders also believe that artificial intelligence and machine learning will be the most influential technologies in shaping the future of trading over the next three years – cited four times more often than blockchain and distributed ledger technology.
