The research organizations will run its experiments on Microsoft's cloud computing infrastructure.

OpenAI, Elon Musk's non-profit artificial intelligence (AI) research firm, has announced that it has formed a partnership with Microsoft's Azure cloud computing service. As a result of the agreement, Microsoft will be able to leverage some of OpenAI's research in its own products, and OpenAI will get early access to Microsoft Azure's GPU-powered N-Series Virtual Machines, which were tailor-made for deep learning. "In the coming months we will use thousands to tens of thousands of these machines to increase both the number of experiments we run and the size of the models we train," said an OpenAI blog.

OpenAI said it was attracted to Microsoft, in part, because of its open source machine learning projects.
