The text generation model's capability is a powerful tool in AI Builder. It enables you to quickly and easily build AI-powered applications that use text generated from your input, like these tools that:

  • Quickly and accurately summarize long documents and extracts key information.
  • Help draft responses to user queries.
  • Classify text into different categories.
  • Translate text from one language to another.

Text generation is powered by Azure OpenAI Service, which is built on Generative Pre-trained Transformer (GPT) technology. These large language models have been trained on a massive amount of text data. This enables them to generate text that's similar to human written text.
