Elon Musk’s Departure from OpenAI
Elon Musk is indeed known for his incredible foresight for technology and business. Aside from his huge roles in Tesla and SpaceX, he was a co-founder of OpenAI, an artificial intelligence research lab. However, Musk announced his departure from OpenAI in February 2018. The primary reason for his departure was reportedly to avoid any potential conflict of interest with Tesla AI development for autonomous driving.Tesla, where Musk is the CEO, is heavily invested in artificial intelligence for its autonomous vehicle technologies. Therefore, being part of OpenAI could have caused potential conflicts of interest.
