Elon Musk, founder of Tesla Motors and Space X, attempts to build artificial intelligence that learns through his open source artificial intelligence nonprofit, OpenAI.
"The next big trend in AI looks likely to be computers and robots that teach themselves through trial and error.
"Elon Musk and Sam Altman (of Y Combinator) caused a stir last December by luring several high-profile researchers to join OpenAI, a billion-dollar nonprofit dedicated to releasing cutting-edge artificial intelligence research for free. Today the nonprofit released the first fruits of its work, and it suggests that kind of learning will be important for the future of AI."--Will Knight, MIT Technology Review
