OpenAI CEO Sam Altman has brushed off claims that he is seeking a staggering $7 trillion for an artificial intelligence chip project.

What Happened: Altman responded to a report suggesting he was seeking a massive $7 trillion for an AI chip initiative. As reported by CNBCโ€™s โ€œLast Call,โ€ Altman urged the public not to โ€œpay too much attentionโ€ to the report.

Why It Matters: Recent reports suggested that Altman was seeking financial backing for a groundbreaking tech initiative aimed at revolutionizing the global semiconductor industry and enhancing AI capabilities. The projectโ€™s estimated cost was between $5 trillion and $7 trillion, as per sources familiar with the matter.

The initiative was seen as a response to constraints on OpenAIโ€™s growth, such as the scarcity of expensive AI chips, known as graphics processing units (GPUs), which are essential for OpenAIโ€™s pursuit of artificial general intelligence.
