OpenAI was founded as a non-profit research lab by Elon Musk and Sam Altman in 2015.
In February, 2018, Musk left, citing a conflict of interest with his work on Tesla's autopilot system.
In 2019, with Altman in charge, OpenAI formed OpenAI LP, a for-profit company it wrote will allow them "to rapidly increase our investments in compute and talent while including checks and balances to actualize our mission."
OpenAI has produced some impressive accomplishments-- in early 2019, its neural networks beat the world's best Dota 2 players. And in July, Microsoft invested $1 billion in OpenAI to pursue artificial general intelligence, an accomplishment many think is atill decades away, if not longer.
