Japanese bank Mizuho recently made Microsoft’s OpenAI platform accessible to its 45,000 workers. The technology, according to Bloomberg, will be used to quicken the bank’s digital transformation and encourage its workers to enhance their computer skills further.
The action is being taken as other banks around the world, particularly in the US, are imposing limitations on generative AI systems like ChatGPT. Mizuho, along with other Japanese banks, has been a keen user of generative AI in contrast to the Wall Street banks.
To simplify the upkeep and development of its systems, Mizuho announced earlier this month a trial with Fujitsu’s generative AI technology.
