Why It Matters: This is not the first time Musk has publicly criticized OpenAI. Earlier this year, the tech billionaire accused OpenAI of stealing “everything” after an interview with the company’s CTO raised questions about its data sourcing.

Musk has also sued OpenAI and its CEO Sam Altman for allegedly betraying the founding principles of the AI startup by prioritizing profits over the benefit of humanity. OpenAI’s response to the lawsuit led Musk to criticize the company further, suggesting that it should change its name if it won’t open-source its AI technology.
