Musk left Open AI because Tesla was creating it's own AI and HE didn't want to cause a conflict of interest??!? According to the board, founders and others close to Open AI, Musk wanted to become CEO and roll the company into Tesla, which no one else wanted. Seeing that Musk has pulled similar moves in the past (how many people know the names of the 2 actual founders of Tesla, whom Musk fired after replacing the former CEO with himself?) I don't blame them. Truth is important & relative.
