As tools for summarizing documents and analyzing text, such models are already widely used. Microsoft used its own Azure OpenAI service to power GitHub Copilot, the $10 monthly service that helps developers better see lines of code and thus suggested code, from inside of their code editors. Power BI also uses GPT-3 natural language models to generate formulae and expressions and the upcoming Microsoft Designer app uses DALL-E 2 to generate art from text prompts.
A while back, it was rumored that Microsoft is further integrating the ChatGPT and other OpenAI models into their products.
