00:40 — Most “AI-powered” apps are powered by compute power which comes from the cloud. Cloud computing plays an important role in how fast AI’s output is returned. This will continue, as Microsoft is now taking cloud computing to the next level.

01:45 — Currently, there is speculation that Microsoft and OpenAI are looking to create AI data centers, called “Stargate,” to launch in 2028. Setting all speculations aside, Aaron notes that it makes sense for Microsoft to invest its resources in something that is AI-powered from the ground up
