The rivalry between OpenAI founder and CEO Sam Altman and former backer and Tesla CEO Elon Musk has been ongoing for some time now. The latest chapter of this rivalry was sparked when Musk made a comment about OpenAI turning to for-profit business, which prompted Altman to reply on Twitter.
In a recent podcast with Kara Swisher, Altman opened up about the relationship between him and Musk. He stated that while he has great respect for Musk, he believes that the Tesla CEO has a unique style and is often a “jerk on Twitter”.
Altman also stated that Musk is very concerned about the safety of Artificial General Intelligence (AGI) and that it is his main motivation for his actions.
The conversation between the two has also been documented in a video, which shows both men in a friendly conversation. The conversation is about the state of AI and the importance of safety measures for the technology.
Altman believes that OpenAI is making significant strides in the development of AI, and that the company’s recent collaboration with Microsoft is a testament to that. The USD 10 billion investment in ChatGPT bolsters both OpenAI and Microsoft’s businesses.
Overall, Altman and Musk may have their differences, but they both share a common goal – to ensure the safe development of AI. By working together, they can create a safe and secure environment for AI to flourish.
