OpenAI also published nine Irish job listings to its careers page and shared ambitions to grow the team to "propel our operations, trust and safety, go-to-market, security engineering, and legal work as part of our ongoing commitment to better serve the European market."

OpenAI joins tech giants including Meta Platforms Inc METAAlphabet Inc GOOG GOOGLLinkedIn Corp, and Apple Inc AAPL in establishing a base in Ireland in quest of the lowest corporate tax rates in Europe, the country's position within the European Union, and the existing tech talent base.

The company has raised over $10 billion, and Altman has spent a significant chunk of 2023 on a world tour, speaking to regulators about the risks of AI and discussing the prospect of opening offices in their jurisdictions.

OpenAI looks to generate over $1 billion in revenue over the next 12 months from selling artificial intelligence software and computing capacity. Earlier, the ChatGPT maker projected $200 million in revenue for 2023.

Meanwhile, AI beneficiaries, Microsoft president Brad Smith and Nvidia Corp's NVDA chief scientist, William Dally, testified in Senate AI hearings.
