Microsoft founder Bill Gates hailed Tesla CEO Elon Musk and his company’s work in the field of artificial intelligence (AI).

Gates tweeted that Musk’s AI business, OpenAI, had achieved a milestone in the advancement of the technology, which has grown significantly in the past few years.

He followed up his first tweet with another, saying OpenAI is working to ensure that AI benefits as many people as possible. He also pointed out the importance of this mission and how excited he was about the future.

Back in August 2017, according to a report by The Verge, one of OpenAI’s bots participated in the annual global Dota 2 tournament. The company’s engineers had claimed that the bot had amassed ‘lifetimes’ of experience in just two weeks of real-time learning.

The bot faced off against Dota 2 pro — Danylo Ishutin — in a live one-on-one match, and it ended with the bot defeating Ishutin, twice. After the match, Ishutin said he would not play against the bot again and that it felt ‘eerily human.’

Musk has been saying for years that he founded OpenAI as a non-profit in order to prevent the technology from ‘destroying the world’.
