OpenAI Big Revelation Amid Lawsuit: Musk Wanted To Be The Company CEO

By Consultants Review Team Wednesday, 06 March 2024

The CEO of ChatGPT maker OpenAI, Sam Altman, was sued by billionaire Elon Musk a few days ago. In response, the business said that Musk had previously shown interest in being the CEO of OpenAI.

Elon Musk sued OpenAI last week, claiming that the business had strayed from its initial goal of creating artificial intelligence for the good of humanity rather than for financial gain. The California Superior Court in San Francisco received the case.

Musk is suing OpenAI for breach of contract, saying that the venture, which was created in 2015, is now primarily focused on making money, despite his requests to establish an open-source, nonprofit organization from co-founder Greg Brockman and Sam Altman.

Elon Musk claims that the three OpenAI founders first chose to concentrate on artificial general intelligence (AGI), or the theory that robots might carry out jobs that humans would find difficult in order to "benefit humanity," as expressed in the complaint.

Furthermore, Musk asserted that OpenAI would rival Alphabet's Google, which he believed was developing artificial intelligence (AGI) for profit and presented significant hazards. Rather, OpenAI "set the founding agreement aflame" in 2023, according to the complaint, when it distributed GPT-4, its most powerful language model, basically as a Microsoft product.

Musk has asked a judge to issue an injunction requiring OpenAI to make its technology and research publicly available and forbidding the firm from exploiting any of its assets—including GPT-4—for Microsoft or any other person's financial gain.
