I’m hoping these folks will be smart in his they invest this billion, so that it’s impacts ripple out in ways that affect private money going into AI.
Launched on Friday, OpenAI’s goal is to develop AI safely and share its research widely. It’s AI is specifically meant to be used in ways that will benefit humanity. The group could still decide to keep some research private if they feel there are safety concerns.
