Azure AI Studio has been made generally available. Enterprises can use the tool to develop and refine AI models and apps based on these models.

All businesses can start using Azure AI Studio as of now. Satya Nadella, Microsoft’s CEO, announced the general availability during Build 2024. During this event, developers will be updated on the latest developments from Microsoft that are of interest to them. Azure AI Studio is one of those developments. Namely, it is a tool for building, training, and refining AI.

“With Azure AI Studio, we offer an end-to-end tool for developing and securing the copilot apps you build,” Nadella described. The tool already received enhancements during the preview phase to better address AI vulnerabilities, including Prompt Shields, inaccuracies, and jailbreaking.

Another new model included in the tool is Phi-3-vision. In this model, Microsoft claims to merge the capabilities of language and visuals. It is at once the first multimodal model in the Phi family and consists of 4.2 billion parameters. The Phi family is known for its small number of parameters compared to other LLMs from well-known developers.
