In this study guide, we will share with you how to prepare and study for the AI-050: Develop Generative AI Solutions with Azure OpenAI Service successfully. At the time of this writing, there is no exam nor official certification for the AI-050 course.

Introduction

As everyone is exploring Artificial Intelligence and looking to increase their skills, I thought I would try and lend a hand and create a study guide for the AI-050, to help you learn and develop Generative AI Solutions with Azure OpenAI service.

Microsoft is keeping evolving its e-learning programs to help you and your career keep pace with today’s demanding IT environments. The new updated role-based certifications will help you to keep pace with today’s business requirements. Microsoft Learning is constantly evolving its e-learning program to better offer what you need to skill up, prove your expertise to employers and peers, and get the recognition—and opportunities you’ve earned.

As Microsoft products and cloud services integrate new AI technology, they are seeing a high demand among customer learners and users for AI courses. If you are looking to expand your skill set and certifications, we suggest pursuing the Azure AI Fundamentals and Azure AI Engineer Associate credentials.

In July 2023, Microsoft announced a new course that focuses on developing Generative AI Solutions with Azure OpenAI Service. Currently, the AI-050 course will not have a related certification. We’ll update this article as soon as Microsoft announces the related exam for this course.

AI-050 Target Audience

The AI-050 course is intended for software developers and data scientists who wish to leverage large language models for generative AI purposes. While some programming experience is recommended, the course is designed to be beneficial for anyone interested in learning how to implement generative AI solutions using the Azure OpenAI service.

The Azure OpenAI Service grants users access to OpenAI’s robust large language models, including the one powering the well-known ChatGPT service. These models facilitate a range of natural language processing (NLP) solutions, enabling tasks such as understanding, conversing, and generating content. To access the service, users have multiple options, including REST APIs, SDKs, and Azure OpenAI Studio.

In this course, students will gain knowledge on provisioning the Azure OpenAI service, deploying models, and leveraging them in generative AI applications. This course is intended for AI Engineers and Data Scientists.
