Azure OpenAI is a cloud-based AI service that provides access to variety of pre-trained models. These models can be easily adopted to any tasks such as content generation, chat, completion, assistants, image understanding and generation, video analysis, natural language to code and more. There are multiple models available to consume by developers using REST APIs, Python SDKs or web interfaces.

Azure OpenAI Studio is a web-based interface that allows developers to interact with the models, deploy them, and monitor their performance. It provides a simple and intuitive way to interact with the models and get the results in real-time. Organizations working on building generative AI products can leverage Azure OpenAI Studio to quickly prototype and deploy models before integrating them into their applications.
