Elon Musk's $1B nonprofit, OpenAI, was set up to ensure that the artificial intelligence that will come is benevolent; they will control the friendliness of the AI by building the first AI.
"Elon Musk has built cars and rockets. Next up: domestic robots.
"OpenAI - the artificial-intelligence research nonprofit cochaired by Tesla Motors CEO Musk and Y Combinator President Sam Altman - wants to build a robot for your home.
"Building a robot, OpenAI's leadership explains in a blog entry on Monday, is a good way to test and refine a machine's ability to learn how to perform common tasks. By "build," the company means taking a current off-the-shelf robot and customizing it to do housework."--Matt Weinberger, the Business Insider
