OpenAI, which is a nonprofit research organization, needs to have a research institution that can develop at a dramatic speed and have human-level capabilities to determine whether AI can contribute to humanity more than self-interest It was founded in mind.

However, in an interview on OpenAI that Medium of IT media went to two people, Y Combinator Altman said, "Think about what will be the most important for humanity in the future, Perhaps it should contain AI.This is the reason for establishing OpenAI.The research institute developing AI that can contribute to humanity is OpenAI.Announced as non-profit, the result of development is shared not by us but by human beings We will reveal the reasons for the establishment. "


On the other hand, Mr. Mask said, "We want to spread AI all over the world, if AI realizes, do you want a lot of AIs or less, we have a lot of AI is better for the world AI is like a human extension.You should not think that it is a stranger when using email, SNS, or an app, which means that email, SNS and apps are special to you It is like expanding with the ability to give it.This way of thinking, we want to incorporate in AI, "he talked about the reason for the establishment of OpenAI.

" Also, Mr. Altman says, "Of course you can earn money with OpenAI, but we are not thinking about raising profits, so it does not happen that shareholders will be making money with OpenAI," I talked about the reason.
