Elon Musk Sues OpenAI Over Breach Of Contract

Tesla CEO and X owner Elon Musk is suing Open AI and its CEO Sam Altman for allegedly putting profit before humanity.

Musk’s attorneys filed the lawsuit on Thursday with a San Francisco court, where they claimed that Musk had been approached by Altman and OpenAI co-founder Greg Brockman back in 2015 — which ended with them coming to an agreement to start a nonprofit lab that would create artificial intelligence (AI) for the “benefit of humanity.”

Musk’s lawsuit argued that the tech billionaire, who left OpenAI in 2018, had been a “moving force” behind the development of the company and had supplied the majority of the funding for OpenAI in the first few years — though Microsoft is now the company’s largest investor following a deal in 2020.

With Microsoft’s new major role in the company, the fact that OpenAI is now developing artificial general intelligence (AGI) with a focus on maximizing profits for the world’s largest tech company rather than the “benefit of humanity” as previously agreed upon, OpenAI is breaking their agreement with Musk. AGI is a theoretical form of AI that is able to perform tasks at a higher level of intelligence above human level.

“Under its new Board, it is not just developing but is actually refining an AGI to maximize profits for Microsoft, rather than for the benefit of humanity,” the lawsuit read.

“OpenAI Inc has been transformed into a closed-source, de facto subsidiary of the largest technology company in the world: Microsoft. Under its new board, it is not just developing but is actually refining an AGI to maximize profits for Microsoft, rather than for the benefit of humanity,” the lawsuit alleged.

OpenAI has already released one of its major projects, ChatGPT — a chatbot that quickly became the fastest-growing consumer app in history.

This chatbot was definitely not created “for the benefit of humanity,” as it has been proven to be extremely biased against conservatives to the point of reporting false information in an effort to smear them — even going so far as to claim that it cannot write something positive about a conservative while being willing to write positive things about Democrats.

The chatbot is also openly racist, as it responds to the same questions about different races in different ways — even listing ways that White people are flawed but claiming that doing the same thing about Black people “reinforces harmful stereotypes and is not productive or respectful.”

ChatGPT was also caught celebrating dangerous, irreversible transgender medical procedures for children.

It is clear from the actions of ChatGPT that OpenAI does not have any interest in benefiting humanity, and instead is more focused on pushing leftist ideology and profiting from promoting establishment narratives. While it is unclear whether Musk’s lawsuit has enough evidence of his agreement with the company to win his case, there is likely enough evidence to prove his claim that the company is not working for the “benefit of humanity.”
