OpenAI Responds to Elon Musk Lawsuit

In response to Elon Musk's lawsuit against OpenAI, the company has fired back with a detailed response and published old emails to support their claims. OpenAI accuses Musk of rewriting history and attempting to gain control over the company.

Allegations by OpenAI

OpenAI states that Musk lobbied for control over the company and even tried to merge it with Tesla, his car company. Musk's alleged desire for "absolute control" of OpenAI contradicts the organization's mission of ensuring that AGI benefits humanity.

Funding Discrepancy

OpenAI clarifies that Musk's funding commitment to the company was less than $45 million, contrary to his suggestion of a $1 billion commitment. Despite this, OpenAI remains committed to its mission and plans to dismiss all of Musk's claims in the lawsuit.
