OpenAI, a nonprofit company engaged in artificial intelligence research, announced that Elon Musk, who is one of its founders, will resign from his position as a member of the board of directors.
Through an upload on the official blog, the OpenAI explained that Elon Musk's departure was because the CEO of Tesla was trying to avoid a conflict of interest that could arise in the future.
The conflict of interest referred to by the company refers to Tesla's activity which he sees is also centered in the development of artificial intelligence.
Tesla itself is trying to realize the level of automation of homemade cars up to level 5, which means the vehicle system has been able to raise performance equivalent to when controlled by humans in all situations, one of them when in extreme environments.
The development of artificial intelligence also became one of the important aspects for them in improving the navigation system on each vehicle it produces in order to reach that level.
Tesla business is getting a positive response from the market. Last year, no fewer than 35,000 people willingly spent US $ 3,000 to buy a software called Fully Self-Driving Capability, which has not even been released yet.
