Is this the same OpenAI initiative Elon Musk (among others) plans to pour billions of dollars upon?
While I am personally excited and entertained by the idea, I also have my concerns as to what this mean for us and how it will affect the life of our (digital) society in the short and long run.
Quote from Harvard Business Review:
"One of the aims of OpenAI is to share their work with the world (for example, they have committing to sharing any patents they might develop). A noble goal. But from there, who do you think is going to be best able to exploit whatever is developed? I wouldn’t claim to be an expert in the field of AI, but I’d hazard a guess that it’s going to be those with the most computational resources and, increasingly, proprietary data to dedicate to it."https://hbr.org/2015/12/is-openai-solving-the-wrong-problem
