Sources say OpenAI may become a for-profit company

The Information reported that OpenAI CEO Sam Altman told the company’s shareholders that the company is considering changing its governance structure into a for-profit company that the company’s non-profit board of directors cannot control, according to people familiar with the matter.

OpenAI responded that they remain focused on building AI that benefits everyone, and that non-profit organizations are core to their mission and will continue to exist.

According to analysts, such changes may pave the way for an initial public offering (IPO) of OpenAI, which is currently valued at $86 billion. This would also give Altman the opportunity to take a stake in OpenAI.

OpenAI was originally a U.S. non-profit AI research laboratory managed by the non-profit organization OpenAI Inc. It later established a profitable subsidiary, OpenAI LP, in 2019.

The Information also reported that some executives responsible for connecting with OpenAI have been leaning towards turning OpenAI into a for-profit company, because such a structure would allow Microsoft to exert more influence on OpenAI in the form of board seats and shareholder voting rights.

A crisis broke out within OpenAI last November. The board of directors briefly fired Altman, and employees in the company's profit department revolted. However, Microsoft, OpenAI's largest investor, had no knowledge of this. This incident also allowed the public to discover the structure of OpenAI's board of directors. Problems and vulnerability.

Li Auto responds to multi-car rear-end collision at car enthusiasts gathering

A few days ago, a video of multiple Lideal cars rear-ending each other on a certain road section in Shantou, Guangdong was leaked, triggering heated discussions on the Internet.

Yesterday, Li Auto's head of intelligent driving products, Han Ling, posted a response on Weibo, saying that the accident occurred at a gathering of the Li Auto Shantou Car Club. He also said that the cause of the accident was relatively simple, including slippery roads on rainy days and vehicles being too close.

Han Ling analyzed the details of the accident and said that at that time, about a dozen vehicles were traveling in a group, with an average speed of about 60km/h, and none of them had the assisted driving function enabled. The front of the car stopped at a red light and slowed down. Several cars in the rear group that were closely following the car were involved in a series of rear-end collisions. A total of 5 cars were damaged.

Han Ling also added that these vehicles also triggered collision warning and AEB before the collision. Because the car at the rear was traveling at a higher speed and was very close to the car in front, and the road was slippery on rainy days, the collision occurred. The damaged cars were sent for repair and the driver was unharmed.
