Recent AI developments are pushing the boundaries of what is possible, with the potential to transform how we live, work, and interact. With Azure OpenAI Service, we’re giving developers the power to democratize AI technology, making it accessible to organizations of all sizes and industries and accelerating their digital transformation.  

 

That’s why we’re excited for this year’s Microsoft Build—beginning Tuesday, May 23, at 8:30 AM—where we’ll explore the latest AI product releases, plus offer educational opportunities and resources through demo sessions, labs, expert meetups, and more.  

 

On Day 1 in our Microsoft Build Opening, join CEO Satya Nadella as he shares how Microsoft is creating new opportunities for developers across our platforms in this new AI era. Immediately following that is a conversation between Microsoft CTO and EVP of Technology and Research Kevin Scott and OpenAI president and co-founder Greg Brockman. They will discuss how Microsoft and OpenAI’s full-stack AI platform, fueled by Azure, can empower developers, startups, and entrepreneurs to innovate and develop the next generation of AI apps and tools that will make the impossible possible. 

 

Be sure to visit the Microsoft Build homepage for the full agenda and additional details. If you haven’t already, register now for the full event attendee experience so you can participate in live workshops and Q&A. 

 

The complete line up of AI technical sessions is listed below for you to build a schedule that is unique to you and your interests. Many sessions will be available on-demand at the links below. Navigate to the session page to see full details.
