Doesn’t Google kind of do this with refusing to disclose how most of their algorithms work?

Google has mostly been transparent most of the time and has published lot of groundbreaking AI research to the public thus advancing the field. OpenAI on the other hand seems to be closed source and trying to compete directly with Google. Maybe in future, Google might not be willing to make its research public if things go like this and we don’t want power to be concentrated in a single company or person. Thus I hope we are able to get better open source models

Well, if anything, a company with the word “Open” in their name should probably be a bit more open source…

Hahah OpenAI is the worst name that company could ever have.

Its not open source and for profit, nothing Open about it

Google publishes a lot of papers. PageRank, one of the the original key algorithms for Google search, was released to the public. Unfortunately, this empowered spammers to game the search engine and create link farms & other “gems.” That’s a big reason why they don’t share in that space any longer. Too many people looking to exploit search results by any means necessary.

On other topics, Google has been the sole inspiration for some substantial projects. AI aside, their paper on BigTable (their own product) caused a ton of interest and sparked independent projects like Hadoop, HBase, & Cassandra). The modern way we work with big data is thanks to Google.

In any case, Google has no obligation to give away algorithms or the designs for entire products, yet they often do.
