He also assured that he has no voice or vote within OpenAI and that it has derailed from the objective for which it was created. “It was initially created as an open source non-profit organization. It is now closed source and for profit. I do not have an open participation in OpenAI, nor am I on the board, nor do I control it in any way”, he remarked.
It is not the first time that Musk has criticized the development of AI because he considers it dangerous. Already in 2018, the tycoon assured that artificial intelligence is “more dangerous than nuclear bombs” during a conference in Texas.
