Microsoft’s chief executive officer has replied to Elon Musk’s allegations about Microsoft controlling OpenAI. Meanwhile, Tesla showcased its artificial intelligence (AI) capabilities at a shareholder meeting.

The war for AI supremacy intensifies with each passing day. Elon Musk, one of the founding members of OpenAI, the parent of ChatGPT, now feels that the company has diverted from its core principles of open-source and non-profit.

Elon Musk Vents Frustrations

The Tesla CEO lashed out at OpenAI in a Twitter space with CNBC. He said, “I am the reason OpenAI exists. I came up with the name. The name OpenAI refers to open source.”

Musk also believes that Microsoft largely controls OpenAI after its $10 billion investment in 2019. In February, Musk tweeted that OpenAI had become a closed-source, maximum-profit company.

Satya Nadella Replies to Allegations

On various occasions, Elon Musk has showcased his disappointment with OpenAI. He plans to build TruthGPT, an AI chatbot competitive to OpenAI’s ChatGPT.

Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella has come forward to the company’s defense. Later in the CNBC interview, Nadella said that Musk’s statements are “factually incorrect.”

He explained that Microsoft has a non-controlling interest in OpenAI. And the ChatGPT parent is being controlled by a non-profit board.

Tesla Ups Its AI Game

While Musk attacks OpenAI, he is steadily building AI functionality for Tesla as well as Twitter. In a shareholders’ meeting on Tuesday, Musk showed off the latest robots from Tesla.

Using AI training, they could walk, learn from human demonstrations, move objects from one place to another, and learn about the real world.

While Musk has confirmed he is stepping down from the CEO position at Twitter, he wants to continue with the responsibilities at Tesla. According to TechCrunch, he said:

“I think Tesla’s going to play an important role in AI and AGI and I think I need to oversee that to make sure it’s good.”

Furthermore, he believes the next 12 months will be tough for the market due to the banking collapse and high-interest rates. The Tesla CEO also suggested “buy the dip” during dark times in the market.
