Mr Altman, this week, attended a conference in New Delhi where he said that OpenAI is against regulating smaller startups in the field of AI. “We have explicitly said there should be no regulation on smaller companies. The only regulation we have called for is on ourselves and people bigger,” the CEO said at the event hosted by Economic Times.
Sam Altman co-founded OpenAI, an artificial intelligence research and deployment company, in 2015 with Tesla CEO Elon Musk among others. The company is behind developing the popular chatbot named ChatGPT. OpenAI has raised $10 billion from Microsoft at a valuation of nearly $30 billion.
