Open AI is an artificial intelligence research organization established in 2015. 👀
A few years ago, artificial intelligence was considered a futuristic and inaccessible technology for the public.🤖 However, with the advent of OpenAI, the situation has changed dramatically.
In this article, we will dive into the history of OpenAI, explain what OpenAI is and assess whether we should be wary of it.
What is OpenAI?
OpenAI is an artificial intelligence (AI) research organization founded in 2015 by Elon Musk, Sam Altman, Greg Brockman, Ilya Sutskever, John Schulman and others in the technology world. OpenAI was created with the goal of developing AI that is safe and beneficial to humanity.
The public figures (the ones you see everywhere answering interviews) are Sam Altman and Elon Musk.
The organization is working on research projects ranging from robotics to speech recognition, natural language understanding and text generation, using the GPT-4 chat tool.
OpenAI differs from other AI research organizations in its commitment to sharing research results freely. Indeed, OpenAI’s work is freely available on its website and can be used by anyone to advance AI research.
The story behind the creation of OpenAI
The OpenAI project was announced to the public in December 2015 at a press conference. The founders explained that they wanted to create advanced AI, but were concerned about the risks that such technology might pose.
They therefore decided to create an AI research organization that would be accountable and transparent in its activities.
Since its inception, OpenAI has raised over $1 billion in funding. In addition to its founders, influential Silicon Valley figures such as Reid Hoffman, co-founder of LinkedIn, have invested in the organization.
