Internet: OpenAI strikes back: Musk wanted “full control”

Tech billionaire Elon Musk is suing OpenAI. The company he co-founded had strayed from the agreed path. Now the ChatGPT development company is reacting with its own allegations against Musk.

The ChatGPT developer company OpenAI has responded to a lawsuit by Elon Musk with its own allegations against the tech billionaire. Musk sought “full control” over OpenAI and the company’s leadership position, co-founders of the start-up led by boss Sam Altman wrote in a blog entry. In 2018, he also advocated merging OpenAI with the electric car manufacturer Tesla, which he leads. Musk initially did not comment on the account, which appears to be largely based on emails from the time.

The tech billionaire sued OpenAI last week. The essence of this is that the company co-founded by Musk in 2015 has deviated from the agreed path of being a non-profit company whose research in artificial intelligence should benefit humanity. Now major investor Microsoft in particular is benefiting from this – for Musk, a “flagrant violation” of the original founding agreement.

The OpenAI founders announced that they wanted to have Musk’s lawsuit dismissed in court. It was sad that someone they had deeply admired had now gone to court after they had made significant progress without him. Musk gave OpenAI “zero” chances of success when he left the start-up. Instead, he planned to develop artificial intelligence under the Tesla umbrella.

ChatGPT is an AI chatbot that triggered an unprecedented hype about artificial intelligence a year ago – with expectations ranging from a kind of digital paradise for everyone to fear of humanity being wiped out. AI chatbots like ChatGPT are trained with huge amounts of information and can formulate texts at the linguistic level of a human. The principle behind this is that they estimate, word by word, how a sentence should continue.
