The entire tech industry seems to be like this in love with the drama which unfolds in terms of OpenAI sudden shooting to its CEO Sam Altman. Over the weekend, OpenAI’s board appeared to turn around and try to bring Altman back. It’s probably now too latehowever, as Altman decided to go work with Microsoft. Lots of OpenAI employeesand much of the audience disagreed with OpenAI’s decision to oust Altman.

However, there is one person who seems to agree with OpenAI and Altman’s firing: Elon Musk.

According to reports, Altman was let go after OpenAI’s chief scientist, Ilya Sutzkever, brought his concerns about Altman’s leadership to the board. Sutskever was said to be worried about the speed Altman was moving and how AI safety issues were being left on the backburner.

“I’m very worried,” Musk published to X on Sunday. “Ilya has a good moral compass and doesn’t seek power. He wouldn’t take such drastic action unless he felt it was absolutely necessary.”

Musk was referring to a previous post he made in response to Sutskever, in which OpenAI’s chief scientist said, “if you value intelligence above all other human qualities, you’re going to have a bad time.”

Over the years, Musk has voiced his concerns over the growing “artificial intelligence” sector. Musk seems to be part of the AI ​​community that worries about creating an end-of-the-world product that actually harms humanity.

Musk was one of the founders of OpenAI when it was purely a non-profit open source organization. He has since completely cut ties with the company and expressed his disagreements with how its partnership with Microsoft is also managed.

On Sunday, even as David Sachs, a tech VC and friend of Musk, published a post stating that Altman should get his job back, Musk dismissed the idea — at least without knowing more information beforehand.

“Given the risk and power of advanced AI, the public needs to be informed why the board feels it needs to take such drastic action.” wrote musk.

After all, though, Musk has his own AI startup xAI, so he certainly realizes there’s a chance if OpenAI can’t recover from all of this. In fact, it looks like he’s already gone from “very worried” to meme sharing mocking the whole OpenAI situation.
