OpenAI Executive Says Elon Musk Is Suing Them Because He Isn’t Part Of The Company Anymore

Since a note from Chief Strategy Officer Jason Kwon refuted allegations made by Tesla CEO Elon Musk in a lawsuit, OpenAI has gained attention. Co-founder Elon Musk has said that OpenAI, which is currently supported by Microsoft, has deviated from its initial goal of creating artificial intelligence for the good of humanity.
According to Kwon’s message, which CNBC was able to access, Musk might be acting out of regret for having left the company. In 2015, Musk co-founded OpenAI, but in 2018, he left the company’s board. He has since expressed his worries openly about AI, saying at one point that it is “potentially more dangerous than nukes.”

In his case, Musk claims that OpenAI, CEO Sam Altman, and other individuals abandoned their initial goal of creating artificial general intelligence (AGI) independent of business influence. Musk asserts that he is the biggest donor to OpenAI, having given more than $44 million between 2016 and 2020.
With a purported worth of more than $80 billion, OpenAI has grown into one of the hottest businesses, even with Musk’s substantial early donations. Altman was temporarily removed from the board last year due to the company’s intricate “capped-profit” structure, but he was swiftly added back after an outcry from staff and investors.

In response to Musk’s lawsuit, Kwon acknowledged Musk’s early role in OpenAI but disputed some details. Kwon stated that Musk had at one point sought “full initial control and majority equity” and suggested merging OpenAI with Tesla, both of which were deemed unsuitable for the company’s mission.

Even though Musk and OpenAI are now in court over their disagreement, Kwon stressed that the business is still committed to achieving its goal of making sure that AGI helps all people. Requests for comments on the subject have not yet received a response from Musk’s attorneys.
