Elon Musk sued OpenAI, the company he first became a board member in 2018 but later left. It was noted that Musk was striving for the artificial intelligence company to bring profit to Microsoft and was concerned that this could jeopardize public safety.

Musk stated that he thinks they betrayed the agreement to develop the artificial intelligence company for the benefit of humanity rather than profit from its inception.

In the lawsuit filed Thursday night in San Francisco Superior Court, Musk claims that OpenAI's recent relationship with tech giant Microsoft jeopardizes the company's commitment to open source artificial general intelligence (AGI).

"WORKING TO BOOST MICROSOFT'S PROFITS"

"OpenAI has been turned into a de facto closed-source subsidiary of the world's largest technology company, Microsoft. Under its new board of directors, it is working to maximize Microsoft's profits rather than the benefit of humanity."

Musk is bringing claims against OpenAI for breach of contract, breach of fiduciary duty and unfair trade practices, and wants the company to return to open source.

REQUEST FOR INJUNCTION AGAINST MICROSOFT

Musk is also seeking an injunction against OpenAI, its chairman Gregory Brockman and CEO Sam Altman, as well as Microsoft to prevent the company from profiting from artificial general intelligence technology.GPT-4 PERFORMS AT THE LEVEL OF HUMANSArtificial general intelligence, a type of artificial intelligence developed to perform autonomously at the cognitive level of humans, has been the main goal of OpenAI, and according to Musk, this performance has been demonstrated in GPT-4.GPT-4 was launched in March 2023, but unlike its predecessors, it remained a closed model, a move driven by commercial considerations rather than the interest of humanity, according to Musk.

"GPT-4 IS NOT BEING USED FOR THE BENEFIT OF HUMANITY"

"Microsoft could make a fortune selling GPT-4 to the public. This will not be possible if OpenAI makes the technology freely available to the public, as it should. Contrary to the Founding Agreement, Defendants have chosen to use GPT-4 not for the benefit of humanity, but as a proprietary technology to maximize the profits of literally the largest corporation in the world."

"MICROSOFT FORCES OPENAI BOARD TO RESIGN"

Musk also addressed Altman's firing and subsequent reinstatement as CEO in 2023.

Billionaire Elon says Altman's dismissal prompted Microsoft to step in and force the board members who tried to oust him to resign.

CLAIMS THEY DON'T UNDERSTAND TECHNOLOGY

Musk claims that the current board members are no longer scientists and researchers who support and understand the technology."OpenAI has replaced the once carefully crafted non-profit structure of his company with a for-profit CEO and a Board of Directors with insufficient technical expertise in AGI and AI public policy. There is now an observer seat on the board reserved solely for Microsoft."Musk, who was OpenAI's first board member but left in 2018, said he was concerned that the conflict between the board and Altman could jeopardize the development of GPT-4 and Musk's public safety.

MICROSOFT CLAIMS RIGHTS OVER GPT-4

Microsoft, which was not named as a defendant in the lawsuit, obtained an exclusive license to OpenAI's GPT-3 language model in 2020.The US tech company continues to lay claim to GPT-4, which it claims has not reached the AGI level that would preclude licensing privileges.Musk claims that Microsoft's retention of Altman and the OpenAI board will prevent them from declaring GPT-4 an artificial general intelligence to keep the technology private and profitable.
