OpenAI has become well-known worldwide for introducing ChatGPT to the public. The tech community was surprised when CEO Sam Altman was fired from OpenAI, but after some controversies, he was reinstated in his role.
Many in the tech world are curious about the mystery behind Sam Altman’s initial firing from OpenAI and the subsequent decision to bring him back just a week later. Initially, the board of directors abruptly fired him, citing his lack of openness about the company’s activities. Adding to the surprise, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella announced a collaboration with Sam Altman, who had resigned from OpenAI. They revealed plans to establish a new unit within Microsoft dedicated to Artificial Intelligence.
This move led to threats of resignations from several OpenAI officials. After multiple discussions, Sam Altman was eventually reinstated. OpenAI is unique in its focus on developing artificial intelligence technologies for the benefit of humanity rather than merely for financial gain. Another significant development emerged – OpenAI was secretly working on a project named QStar, a groundbreaking AI technology. Sam Altman was accused of working on this sensitive project without informing the board.
The QStar project involves the creation of an Artificial General Intelligence System. This independent system is designed to perform various tasks, including economic activities, without human intervention. A crucial aspect of this system is its ability to provide accurate answers by verifying information, eliminating the need for guesswork.
The training of artificial general intelligence systems involves mathematics. If successful, this project aims to enable the system to think logically like humans, facilitating easier scientific research. The system will be capable of understanding and solving mathematics independently. However, concerns arise about the potential threat to humanity if such a machine learning system can autonomously solve all problems in the future.
