Rage Against the AI Machine

This week the extraordinary firing and re-hiring of Open AI CEO Sam Altman brought to the public’s attention the tensions between ethical and commercial imperatives that plague the development of artificial intelligence.

Stephen Hill asked Scientia Professor Toby Walsh and Sydney University media lecturer Joanna Gray about the history and corporate structure of the OpenAI, the organisation that created ChatGPT, and what this week’s events means for the future directions of AI.
