Tech giant Microsoft has unveiled a new AI training method called the "Algorithm of Thoughts" (AoT), designed to make large language models like ChatGPT more efficient and human-like in their reasoning abilities.

The new approach is the natural next step for the company, which has invested heavily AI, and particularly in OpenAI —the creators of DALL-E, ChatGPT, and the powerful GPT language model.

Microsoft says the AoT technique is a potential game-changer, as it "guides the language model through a more streamlined problem-solving path," according to a published research paper. This novel approach utilizes "in-context learning," enabling the model to explore different solutions in an organized manner systematically.

The result? Faster, less resource-intensive problem-solving.
