Elon Musk Wants OpenAI To Rename The Company As "ClosedAI"

By Consultants Review Team Thursday, 07 March 2024

Sam Altman's OpenAI released a statement the day after Elon Musk sued the business, and now the billionaire has slammed chatGPT once again and called for an end to the legal dispute. Elon Musk said on X that if OpenAI agreed to rename the company as "ClosedAI," he would withdraw his lawsuit against it. In just a few hours, the tweet has received over 1.3 million views, demonstrating its viral nature.

Few people know that Elon Musk is one of OpenAI's co-founders. Last week, Elon Musk filed a lawsuit against OpenAI, alleging that the business had deviated from its original mission of developing artificial intelligence for the benefit of mankind rather than for profit. The case was received by the San Francisco Superior Court of California.

Musk is suing OpenAI for breach of contract, claiming that despite his demands to form an open-source, nonprofit organization from co-founders Greg Brockman and Sam Altman, the 2015-founded firm is now primarily focused on earning money. According to Elon Musk, the three founders of OpenAI initially focused on artificial general intelligence (AGI), or the idea that robots might perform activities that humans would find challenging, with the intention of "benefiting humanity," as stated in the complaint.

Musk is requesting a court order that would prohibit OpenAI from utilizing any of its assets—including GPT-4—for Microsoft or any other party's financial advantage and require the business to make its technology and research available to the general public.

Elon Musk's complaint contains several claims that top OpenAI personnel have denied, according to a document released last week. "It was never going to be a walk in the park," stated Sam Altman, CEO of OpenAI. "The attacks will keep coming."

In response to Elon Musk's lawsuit, OpenAI released a statement yesterday that stated, "We and Elon decided in late 2017 that the next step for the mission was to create a for-profit entity." Elon requested initial board control, a majority stake, and the role of CEO.
