Andrei Karpathy again at OpenAI
San Francisco, 2/10/2023
Former Tesla senior AI director Andrej Karpathy is now returning to AI research company OpenAI, where he was previously a research scientist and founding member.
Karpathy left Tesla last year after leading the computer vision team for Autopilot, its driver-assistance technology.
It was unclear what role Karpathy will play at OpenAI, the maker of ChatGPT and DALL-E. Announcing his exit from Tesla in July, Kartpathy said he intends to focus on his “long-term passions for engineering work in AI, open source and education.” in October he said he was “interested” in returning to Tesla one day.
However, he tweeted on Wednesday that he was coming back to OpenAI and was “inspired by the impact of their work,” adding that he had “personally benefited greatly.”
