Elon Musk sues OpeanAI and its director for breaching agreement to “benefit humanity”

Elon Musk sued OpenAI and its executive director Sam Altman which, he claims, is a betrayal of the ChatGPT creator's fundamental goals of benefit humanity, rather than seeking financial benefits.

In a lawsuit filed in San Francisco Superior Courtbillionaire Musk said that when he funded the creation of OpenAI, he struck a deal with Altman and Greg Brockmanpresident of the company, for maintain the artificial intelligence company as a non-profit organization that would develop technology to benefit the population.

Under that funding agreement, OpenAI will also would open its code rather than control it for any private company to make a profit, the lawsuit states.

However, by establishing a close relationship with Microsoft, OpenAI and its top executives have “burned” that agreement and “perverted” the company's mission, Musk claimed in the lawsuit.
