Musk sued Sam Altman

Elon Musk, owner of Tesla and social media platform X, has sued OpenAI and several others in the company, including its CEO Sam Altman. This case has been filed in the case of alleged violation of the agreement. However, till now no comment has been made by Musk or Sam Altman in this matter. It is alleged that in 2015, OpenAI founders Greg Brockman and Sam Altman had approached Elon Musk to form a non-profit company. This company was created to develop technology based on AI technology for the benefit of humans. However, this agreement broke down due to OpenAI’s focus on making profits, due to which Musk has filed a lawsuit against Altman and OpenAI.
