OpenAI vs. Elon Musk: A Tale of Partnerships and Shared Visions in the Tech Industry

OpenAI dismisses Musk’s grievance: “Disappointed in the unexpected turn with a formerly respected individual”

The founders of OpenAI, Sam Altman and Greg Brockman, have rejected Elon Musk’s complaint that he filed last week in an attempt to gain full control over the company. In a blog post, they referenced emails from 2018 where Musk proposed merging OpenAI with Tesla to achieve his goal of full control. Musk founded OpenAI in 2015 with the mission of developing artificial intelligence for the benefit of humanity without profit. However, he claims that the company has deviated from this mission by not releasing the source code of its latest version, GPT4.

Despite their initial support for Musk’s idea of making OpenAI profitable, Altman and Brockman have accused him of abandoning the original mission of OpenAI and creating a competitor. In response, Musk has expressed his disappointment in the situation, stating that he was inspired by Altman and Brockman to aim higher only to later be sued.

OpenAI intends to ask the judge to dismiss Musk’s complaint while Musk has founded his own artificial intelligence company called xAI. This dispute highlights the complex nature of partnerships and shared visions in the tech industry, especially when it comes to developing cutting-edge technology like artificial intelligence.
