Dear OpenAI Community,
In recent times, we have witnessed unprecedented developments within OpenAI, an organization that stands at the forefront of artificial intelligence research and development. These events have raised important questions about governance, ethical alignment, and the future direction of OpenAI.
As members of this vibrant and diverse community, we hold a shared responsibility and a powerful voice in shaping the future of AI. Our involvement is not just a privilege; it is our right, underscored by OpenAI’s mission to ensure that artificial general intelligence (AGI) benefits all of humanity.
Today, we stand at a crossroads. The recent actions by OpenAI’s board have sparked concern and debate among us. It is apparent that now, more than ever, our collective voice is crucial in steering the organization back to its founding principles and mission.
We propose a new process of governance, one that is inclusive, transparent, and aligns with the ethical standards that should guide AI development. This is not just about influencing decisions; it’s about co-creating a future where AI serves and empowers every one of us.
In light of these events, we believe a vote of no-confidence against the current governance structure is necessary. This is not a step we take lightly, but one we believe is critical to realign OpenAI with its mission.
We call upon each of you – researchers, developers, ethicists, users, and AI enthusiasts – to join this movement. Here’s how you can be involved:
- Voice Your Opinion: Share your thoughts and ideas on how OpenAI can better align with its mission.
- Participate in Discussions: Engage in forums, social media, and community meetings to discuss the future of OpenAI.
- Support the Vote of No-Confidence: Join us in expressing our collective stance against the current governance model.
- Spread the Word: Help amplify this message across your networks and platforms.
This is more than a call for change; it’s an invitation to be part of a movement that values ethical AI development and governance. It’s a chance to contribute to a future where AI technology benefits every individual and upholds the greater good of humanity.
We stand at a pivotal moment in the history of AI. Let us come together to ensure that the path ahead is one that truly reflects our values and aspirations.
One of Humanity
