OpenAI is a non-profit AI research company, discovering and enacting the path to safe artificial general intelligence.

OpenAI's mission is to build safe AGI, and ensure AGI's benefits are as widely and evenly distributed as possible. We expect AI technologies to be hugely impactful in the short term, but their impact will be outstripped by that of the first AGIs.

OpenAI's co-founders are Greg Brockman, Ilya Sutskever, Elon Musk, and Sam Altman.

We often tie our short-term goals to practical projects that let us identify new problems and test our ideas against measurable, defined objectives. We've created the OpenAI Gym and Universe software platforms, and are creating a new one for controlling a General Purpose Robot.
