Elon Musk Sues OpenAI Over Mission Drift Towards Profits, Citing Microsoft Influence

Elon Musk is taking legal action against OpenAI, the creators of ChatGPT, alleging that the company has strayed from its original purpose of serving humanity to prioritize profits, particularly for major investor Microsoft.

OpenAI, initially founded as a non-profit aiming to develop artificial general intelligence (AGI) for societal benefit, has faced scrutiny after a series of internal conflicts and a shift towards commercial interests.

Musk’s lawsuit highlights concerns over Microsoft’s growing influence on OpenAI’s direction, including the secrecy surrounding its AI developments.

This legal battle underscores the clash between altruistic ideals and corporate interests in the tech world.
