OpenAI Working To Maximize Profits For Microsoft Rather Than Humanity, Says Elon Musk

Elon Musk sued ChatGPT-creator OpenAI and its co-founders Sam Altman and Greg Brockman accusing the company of breaking its founding agreement and working to maximize profits for a key investor instead of Musk at large. Musk was a co-founder of OpenAI but stepped away from the company in 2018.

The lawsuit, which was filed in a San Francisco Superior Court, focused on OpenAI’s relationship with Microsoft.

“Under its new Board, [OpenAI] is not just developing but is actually refining an AGI [Artificial General Intelligence] to maximize profits for Microsoft, rather than for the benefit of humanity,” the filing reads.

In the lawsuit, Musk reinforced his part in OpenAI’s founding story and stated that Altman and Brockman had approached him in 2015 to make an open-source, non-profit company that would benefit humanity. The lawsuit alleged that OpenAI “set the founding agreement aflame” last year when it released its latest GPT-4, which the lawsuit called a Microsoft product.

Musk asked the court to make OpenAI’s research and technology publicly available and to stop Microsoft and OpenAI execs from financially gaining from it.

Microsoft’s $13 billion, multiyear partnership OpenAI is one that regulators in the U.S. and U.K. are preparing to investigate. Microsoft has a 49% stake in OpenAI’s for-profit side and can capitalize on OpenAI’s advancements in products like Word, Excel, and Outlook.
