Natural Language Through GPT-3
Microsoft announced public previews for select users in English and in North America by the end of June for new Power Apps features as a result of integration with GPT-3, a natural language model developed by OpenAI to help users who don’t know code build apps. The goal is for non-developers to still build applications to perform tasks like review nonprofit gift donations and manage travel, Microsoft said.
GPT-3 runs on Microsoft Azure and is powered by Azure Machine Learning. The Power Platform and Azure AI teams even worked together with Azure Machine Learning to translate expressions using the natural language and Power Fx low-code coding language.
Before the new GPT-3-powered features, Power Platform users still needed to know how to write formulas, even if they didn’t need to know a coding language. Now, they can write in conversational text, according to Microsoft.
