The co-founder and chief scientist of OpenAI, Ilya Sutskever, demonstrated his commitment to developing artificial intelligence in the best interests of humanity by burning a wooden effigy, as reported by The Atlantic.

Sutskever and CEO Sam Altman had frequent disagreements on how to mitigate the potential harm of AI to society, according to a report by Bloomberg.

In an article by Greg Brockman, the former chairman of OpenAI who is transitioning to Microsoft, it was mentioned that Sutskever personally informed Altman of his dismissal.

Sutskever played a central role in Altman’s abrupt removal due to concerns regarding the pace of AI advancement, as reported by The New York Times.

To ensure the safety of upcoming GPT-4 releases, Sutskever established a “Super Alignment” team within the organization, as per The New York Times.

The commitment to this cause was showcased at a leadership retreat earlier this year, as confirmed by sources familiar with the matter to The Atlantic.

Sutskever commissioned a local artist to create an “unaligned” AI statue, symbolizing OpenAI’s dedication to ethical AI development, according to The Atlantic.

OpenAI, founded as a non-profit in 2015 with a focus on AI research, received a $1 billion investment from Microsoft four years later, transitioning into a capped-profit entity.

Following the successful launch of ChatGPT, OpenAI introduced a GPT Store allowing users to monetize customized GPT models, attracting significant interest in financial gains.

Altman’s departure after 11 weeks was attributed to a lack of transparency with the board, hindering OpenAI’s operational effectiveness, as stated by the organization.

OpenAI did not immediately respond to Business Insider’s request for comment, which was submitted outside of U.S. working hours.
