What’s the India connection of ChatGPT company CTO Mira Murati?

San Francisco, Feb 10 (IANS) Mira Murati, the Chief Technology Officer (CTO) of OpenAI, the company that created the ChatGPT AI-powered chatbot, recently expressed her concerns about its misuse.

In an interview with Time Magazine, Murati expressed concerns over the potential misuse of the chatbot, saying: “Artificial intelligence (AI) can be misused, or it can be used by bad actors. So then, there are questions about how you govern the use of this technology globally. How do you govern the use of AI in a way that is aligned with human values?”

Mira Murati was born in 1988 in San Francisco in the US to Indian-origin parents.

She joined OpenAI in June 2018, and in May 2022, she was promoted to her current role.

She has previously worked for Goldman Sachs (2011), Zodiac Aerospace (2012-13), Tesla (2013-16), and Leap Motion (2016-18).

Murati graduated from Dartmouth College with a Bachelor of Engineering (BE) in Mechanical Engineering and is currently based in the San Francisco Bay Area.
