Elon Musk sues Sam Altman, the CEO of OpenAI, for allegedly leaving the project.

March 1st, Reuters Elon Musk sued OpenAI, the business that makes ChatGPTs, and its CEO, Sam Altman, among other people, claiming that they had abandoned the firm’s initial goal of creating artificial intelligence for the sake of mankind rather than for financial gain.
According to the late-night complaint, Musk was initially approached by Altman and OpenAI co-founder Greg Brockman to create an open-source, nonprofit organization.
The San Francisco-based Microsoft-backed company’s emphasis on profit-making violated the terms of the agreement, according to Musk’s attorneys in their lawsuit. They said that the business has kept its most sophisticated AI model, GPT-4, “a complete secret”.

When Reuters reached out for comment, OpenAI, Microsoft, and Musk did not immediately reply.
Musk left the board of OpenAI in 2018, despite having co-founded the company in 2015. Along with running Tesla (TSLA.O), he also founded SpaceX, a new tab and rocket company, and in October 2022 paid $44 billion to acquire Twitter.
The previous board of OpenAI dismissed serial entrepreneur Altman last year, citing the company’s work to advance AI for human benefit as justification. A few days later, Altman came back to the business with a newly assembled board.

Six months after its November 2022 launch, OpenAI’s chatbot, ChatGPT, became the fastest-growing software program globally. Rival chatbots from Microsoft, Alphabet, and several startups were also inspired by it to emerge in an attempt to capitalize on the hoopla and raise billions of dollars in financing.
From document summarization to computer code development, ChatGPT has been embraced by businesses since its inception. This has sparked a competition among Big Tech companies to introduce their own generative AI-based products.
