Elon Musk: “I am the reason OpenAI exists”, admits to investing in that artificial intelligence company

Elon Musk acknowledged that he is “the reason OpenAI exists,” referring to his investment in artificial intelligence.

Elon Musk, owner of Tesla and SpaceX as well as Twitter, said in an interview with CNBC that he was one of the first investors in OpenAI, the creator of ChatGPT, which he said was instrumental in recruiting key scientists and engineers.

He did not mention the exact amount, though he said he had invested an amount of around $50 million.

But he stopped supporting OpenAI because of disagreements with top officials about the pace of this technological advancement and the current debate about the risk it could represent as a potential threat to humanity.

The billionaire is also among scientists who have called for halting the development of advanced AI (artificial intelligence) until safeguards are put in place to prevent it from being used for malicious purposes.

The CNBC article reports that OpenAI is a non-profit research company founded in 2015 with the goal of promoting and developing safe and beneficial artificial intelligence.

And that the company has made significant progress in the field of AI and has developed a number of powerful AI systems, including the GPT-4 language model.
