Unlocking the Future: Azure OpenAI Services


Welcome to the world of Azure OpenAI Services! This groundbreaking platform offers REST API access to OpenAI’s cutting-edge language models, such as GPT-4, GPT-35-Turbo, and the Embeddings model series. These models serve various purposes and provide valuable assistance in tasks like text summarization, semantic search, natural language understanding, and code translation.

Users can conveniently access these services either through REST APIs or SDKs available for Python, NodeJS, or a user-friendly web-based interface within the Azure OpenAI Studio platform.

Azure OpenAI Service Models

Let’s take a closer look at some of the remarkable models available:

  1. GPT-3 (Generative Pre-trained Transformer 3): GPT-3 is widely recognized for its exceptional language processing capabilities. It can perform tasks like text generation, translation, summarization, and more. For even more efficient and high-quality text generation, there’s GPT-3.5-Turbo.
  2. GPT-4: The advanced successor of GPT-3, offering improved performance and capabilities for natural language understanding and generation tasks.
  3. Embedding Models: These models specialize in generating high-quality textual embeddings or representations of text data. They are great for tasks like similarity analysis and recommendation systems.
  4. Codex Models: These models excel at coding tasks. They convert natural language inputs into native code, and currently support Python, JavaScript, TypeScript, Ruby, Go, C#, and C++.
  5. Dall-e Models: Currently in preview mode, these models generate images based on natural language inputs.

The models are broadly classified as:

  • Chat & Completion
    • gpt-4-32k
    • gpt-35-turbo-16k
  • Embeddings  
  • Text generation
    • text-ada-001 (Legacy)
    • text-babbage-001 (Legacy)
    • text-curie-001 (Legacy)
    • text-davinci-001 (Legacy)
  • Code generation
    • code-davinci-002
    • code-cushman-001 (Legacy)
  • Image generation

Nomenclature of model names

Azure OpenAI model names typically follow a specific naming convention:



Difference between Azure OpenAI and OpenAI

  1. Azure OpenAI Service is exclusively available to businesses, providing advanced models with the security and enterprise-grade Azure Services.
  2. Azure OpenAI collaboratively develops APIs and builds models in partnership with OpenAI, hosting these models on the Azure Cloud for a seamless transition.
  3. Azure OpenAI ensures Azure customers have access to private networking, regional availability, and responsible AI content filtering.

Key Terminologies


A prompt is a predefined instruction or question given to the model to elicit a specific type of response. It sets the context or provides guidance for the model to generate the desired output. Prompts can be a text string or a series of text.

For example, a prompt could be: “Write a short story about a detective solving a mysterious murder case in a small town.”


Completion refers to the output or response generated by the model when given a prompt or input. The model processes the input and generates a text completion that follows the context or instruction provided in the prompt.

For example, a completion could be: “The sun is shining, the birds are singing, and the flowers are blooming in the vibrant garden.”


Tokens are the fundamental units of text that the model reads and processes. They can be as short as one character or as long as one word in English, and their length may vary in other languages. Tokens serve multiple purposes, including text segmentation, counting usage, limitations, and influencing response length.

Prompt Engineering

Prompt engineering is the practice of carefully crafting and optimizing prompts or inputs given to a language model to achieve desired outputs or responses. It involves tailoring the instructions, format, and content of the prompt to guide the model in producing accurate, relevant, and high-quality responses. Prompt engineering is crucial in various natural language processing tasks and includes aspects like iterative testing, bias and fairness considerations, and task customization.


A Large Language Model (LLM) is a category of machine learning model designed for a wide range of natural language processing (NLP) tasks. LLMs can generate text, classify information, engage in question-answering conversations, and perform language translations between different languages.

Responsible AI

Responsible AI, also known as Ethical AI or AI Ethics, encompasses the practice of designing, developing, and deploying artificial intelligence systems in a manner that aligns with ethical and moral principles. It aims to respect human rights, minimize potential negative impacts, and ensure fairness, reliability, safety, privacy, security, inclusiveness, accountability, and transparency. Responsible AI provides a framework and set of guidelines for the benefit of all stakeholders.


As part of our commitment to responsible AI, Azure OpenAI is not readily available to all businesses. To gain access, businesses must submit a form to Microsoft for initial experimentation and approval for production use. Additionally, registration is required for modifying content filters or abuse monitoring settings, ensuring a safe and secure environment.
