MAI-1 will be “much larger” than previous smaller open source models that Microsoft had previously trained, meaning it will be more expensive, according to the report.

The company has invested billions of dollars in OpenAI and deployed ChatGPT maker’s technology into its productivity software suite, allowing it to take the lead in the generative AI race.

According to the report, Microsoft has been setting aside large clusters of servers equipped with Nvidia graphics processing units along with large amounts of data to improve the model.

According to the report, MAI-1 will have about 500 billion parameters, while OpenAI’s GPT-4 will have one trillion and Phi-3 mini 3.8 billion.

In March, Microsoft named Suleyman head of its newly created consumer AI unit and hired several Inflection employees.

The new model does not come from Inflection, although it may be based on the startup’s training data, the report added.
