Karpathy, who made his second stint at OpenAI last year, was once a senior director for AI at Tesla, where he was instrumental in the development of the AI and driver assistant technology used by the electric vehicle manufacturer.

One of the original members of OpenAI and an artificial intelligence researcher, Andrej Karpathy, announced his departure from the Microsoft-backed business on Monday in a post on social media platform X.

The announcement is a dramatic shift from OpenAI, one of the leading labs vying to create artificial intelligence with ever-increasing capabilities.

“My immediate plan is to work on my personal projects and see what happens,” Karpathy said in the post on Tuesday.

Karpathy, who made his second stint at OpenAI last year, was once a senior director for AI at Tesla, where he was instrumental in the development of the AI and driver assistant technology used by the electric vehicle manufacturer.

Prior to joining Tesla, Karpathy was a staff member of OpenAI and had studied under renowned Stanford AI scientist Fei-Fei Li. He recently discussed the concept of AI, in which big language models function as a novel form of operating system for computers.
