Microsoft has announced a deepening of its partnership with the company behind the artificial intelligence program ChatGPT by announcing a multibillion dollar investment in the business.
ChatGPT, an artificial intelligence chatbot, has been a sensation since it launched in November, with users marvelling at its ability to perform a variety of tasks from writing recipes and sonnets to job applications.
It is at the forefront of generative AI, or technology trained on vast amounts of text and images that can create content from a simple text prompt.
It has been previously reported that Microsoft was considering a $10bn (Â£8bn) investment in OpenAI this time round.
