Elon Musk has called for OpenAI to disclose the reason behind the dismissal of CEO Sam Altman. Musk, who was previously a board member of OpenAI, expressed concerns over the risks associated with advanced AI and argued that the public should be informed of the board’s decision. The announcement of Altman’s firing came with a statement from OpenAI citing a loss of confidence in his ability to lead the company. However, tension had been growing among the company’s leadership over the dangers of AI.
Ilya Sutskever, a co-founder of OpenAI, was involved in Altman’s dismissal and had taken a cautious approach to AI’s potential harm to society. He established a “Super Alignment” team within the company to ensure the safety of future AI technology. Musk himself has expressed similar concerns about advanced AI and its potential impact on society through his own AI company. With Altman’s firing and the ongoing conversation around AI safety and potential threats, there continues to be an evolving discussion on this topic.
