OpenAI has positioned itself as a leader in responsible AI development, but the firings for information sharing seem to contradict this mission. Elon Musk, an early backer, has criticized OpenAI for becoming a “closed source, maximum-profit company” rather than the open, transparent nonprofit it was intended to be.
