Elon Musk Vents About ‘$100 Million’ OpenAI Donation Gone Wrong

So, I was reading this crazy article about Elon Musk and his OpenAI organization. Apparently, he’s super upset about a 100 million dollar donation gone wrong. Basically, OpenAI is a group that’s trying to create artificial intelligence that doesn’t end up turning into an evil robot like in the movies. Cool, right? Well, Elon Musk thought so too, and he donated a whole bunch of money to the cause.

But here’s where things get a little tricky. Musk ended up leaving OpenAI because he disagreed with some of the things they were doing. And now, he’s venting about how that 100 million dollar donation was a mistake. He says they never used the money the way it was supposed to be used, and that the whole thing ended up being a waste.

I mean, I can’t imagine what it must be like to donate that much money to something and then feel like it was all for nothing. But on the other hand, I guess it goes to show that even super rich and famous people can make mistakes. It makes me think twice about where my own money goes when I donate to charities or other causes.

Overall, I think the whole situation is just a reminder that you have to be careful who you’re giving your money to. Just because someone has a good cause, doesn’t mean they’re going to use your money the right way. So, be sure to do your research before donating to any organization, no matter how big or small.


OpenAI is an artificial intelligence (AI) research company that aims to develop and promote friendly AI to benefit humanity as a whole. The company was founded in December 2015 by Elon Musk, Sam Altman, Greg Brockman, Ilya Sutskever, John Schulman, and Wojciech Zaremba, among others. OpenAI is based in San Francisco, California.

OpenAI's mission is to ensure that artificial general intelligence (AGI), which refers to highly autonomous systems that outperform humans at most economically valuable work, benefits all of humanity. The company is dedicated to conducting cutting-edge AI research and developing AI technologies that align with its mission.

To achieve its goals, OpenAI follows a set of key principles:

Broadly distributed benefits: OpenAI commits to using its influence over AGI deployment to ensure it benefits everyone and doesn't harm humanity or concentrate power unduly.

Long-term safety: The company prioritizes long-term safety research and is dedicated to promoting the adoption of safety research across the AI community.

Technical leadership: OpenAI aims to stay at the forefront of AI capabilities to effectively address AGI's societal impact even before its arrival.

Cooperative orientation: The organization actively cooperates with other research and policy institutions to create a global community addressing AGI's challenges.

OpenAI has developed several AI technologies and models, including the well-known GPT (Generative Pre-trained Transformer) series. GPT-3, the third iteration, has demonstrated impressive capabilities in natural language processing, making it one of the most advanced AI language models to date.
