- He criticized the creator of ChatGPT
- As well as project plans to move to a commercial model
Elon Musk hard criticized OpenAI for planning to move away from the non-commercial model. He emphasized his significant role in the creation of the startup. And he believes that the organization owes its existence to him.
This heated speech was announced during conversations on Twitter Spaces with journalist David Faber.
Elon Musk recalled that he invested his $ 50 million in early funding for OpenAI in the early stages of its development.
“I am the reason why OpenAI exists. I came up with a name. The name OpenAI stands for open source.”
Musk points out that OpenAI was originally created as an open source non-profit organization. It was supposed to be a competitor to Google and other monopolists, who are “sharpened” only for profit. Now control over the project will be received by Microsoft and other large “sharks”.
The businessman believes that the transformation of a non-profit organization into a commercial one would be illegal.
“It is very important to determine who will ultimately control the potential superintelligence developed by OpenAI”
Musk worries about the relationship between OpenAI and Microsoft, brands that have invested heavily in the organization. This introduces risks about the autonomy of development.
By the way, today the head of OpenAI wrote a letter to the Senate and spoke about the threats to AI.
