Microsoft has announced a new long-term partnership with the French startup Mistral, which specializes in developments in the field of artificial intelligence. This startup is only 10 months old, but is already valued at €2 billion. The companies do not disclose investment details.

The partnership will involve Microsoft acquiring a small stake in the company. This partnership comes just over a year after Microsoft invested over $10 billion in a partnership with OpenAI. As a result of this agreement, Mistral's open and commercial language models will be available on the Microsoft Azure AI platform. Like with OpenAI, Microsoft's partnership with Mistral will also focus on the development and deployment of large next-generation language models.

At the same time, Mistral has announced a new artificial intelligence model called Mistral Large. It is designed to compete more closely with the OpenAI GPT-4 model. Unlike some previous Mistral models, this one will not be offered with open source code.

"Mistral Large achieves significant results in standard tests, making it the world's second model available through API (alongside GPT-4)," says the Mistral AI team.

Mistral Large is available on Mistral's own infrastructure, located in Europe, or through Azure AI Studio and Azure Machine Learning. Mistral Small will also be available, offering improved latency compared to the Mistral 8x7B model. Mistral is also releasing a new conversational chatbot Le Chat, which is based on various Mistral AI models.
