Elon Musk leaves OpenAI after new report causes conflict of interest

OpenAI Supporters - OpenAI Blog

The report - which warns of a unsafe sci-fi future where hackers could build swarms of deadly micro-drones and use self-driving cars as weapons - comes from major AI organizations, including the Elon Musk-backed nonprofit OpenAI.

Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk is letting go of his spot on the board of ethics research group OpenAI to prevent a future conflict of interest.

Most people know Elon Musk as the Tesla CEO, but there are few who are aware of the fact that he founded a $1 billion non-profit organization called OpenAI. Despite this, OpenAI has confirmed Musk will continue to donate money and advise the organisation as it continues its work.

The move was announced in a short blog post, explaining that Musk is leaving in order to avoid a conflict of interest between OpenAI's work and the machine learning research done by Telsa to develop autonomous driving. "I think we should be very careful about artificial intelligence".

The same blog post announces a whole bunch of new donors from differing fields, including Valve's Gabe Newell, Skype founder Jaan Tallinn and Olympians Ashton Eaton and Brianne Theisen-Eaton. Its areas of research are wide and include teaching computers to control robots with minimal instruction and the creation of AI agents to play the popular video game Dota.

Open AI does not sell any products unlike other companies such as Tesla, Facebook and Google which also conduct AI research.

With all the known benefits, Elon Musk still admits that the artificial intelligence is very unsafe, maybe even riskier than North Korea. He said in 2014 that AI is "potentially more unsafe than nukes". To date, its usage has been described by Musk as narrow, utilised mainly in cars' autopilot software which provides autonomous decisions from the vehicle without driver input.

Musk helped craft OpenAI's vision and financed much of the nonprofit's growth. The company has so far not managed to come close to delivering a level 5 self-driving system.
