OpenAI is a non-profit organization that aims to develop artificial intelligence in a safe and beneficial manner.
The company was founded in 2015 by a group of tech luminaries, including Elon Musk and Sam Altman.
OpenAI’s research has led to the development of several cutting-edge AI technologies, including the GPT language model.
The GPT model has been used to generate human-like text, which has raised concerns about the potential misuse of the technology.
OpenAI has been criticized for its lack of transparency and for not sharing its research with the broader scientific community.
In 2021, OpenAI announced that it would become a for-profit company and raised $1 billion in funding from investors.
The move to become a for-profit company was seen as a way to attract top talent and compete with other tech giants.
The recent turmoil at OpenAI began when the company’s board of directors fired CEO Sam Altman.
Altman’s ouster was reportedly due to disagreements over the direction of the company and how to balance scientific research with commercial interests.
Microsoft has emerged as a key player in the battle over OpenAI. The company has invested $13 billion in OpenAI and has hired several of the company’s top executives.
