Regulation a two-edged sword | De Standaard – Belgium


Sam Altman’s dismissal is the result of a conflict between two schools of thought, explains the Süddeutsche Zeitung:

“Sam Altman belongs to the school of accelerationism, an economic ideology from the 1990s. It sees the acceleration of technological progress as the inevitable future, without regard for society and humanity. Altman was therefore also the driving force behind turning the originally non-profit research institute OpenAI into a profit-orientated company. … [Co-founder Ilya] Sutskever and Murati, on the other hand, belong to the old school of science which subjects every new finding and technology to tests and practical trials before unleashing it on humanity. For the time being, they have prevailed.”
