Open-Source vs. Closed-Source AI

Ilya Sutskever, OpenAI
In conversation with: Ravi Belani, Stanford University

Ilya Sutskever, co-founder and chief scientist of OpenAI, explains his general approach to deciding whether an AI model should be open- or closed-source. While keeping AI open-source prevents concentration of power in the hands of the builders, he believes it would be irresponsible to make powerful future AI models open-source. The current capability is not that high, he says, but OpenAI is now closed-source.
