Tech Luminaries Plan To Stop Computers From Taking Over With "OpenAI"

A non-profit research firm has been established to "ensure, or increase, the probability that AI would develop in a beneficial way" with "no obligation to maximize profitability."

OpenAIآ…vows to make its results public and its patents royalty-free, all to ensure that the scary prospect of computers surpassing human intelligence may not be the dystopia that some people fear. Funding comes from a group of tech luminaries including Elon Musk, Reid Hoffman, Peter Thiel, Jessica Livingston and Amazon Web Services. They have collectively pledged more than a billion dollars to be paid over a long time period.
