OpenAI will open an office in Tokyo – Kommersant


AI model developer OpenAI is set to open its third overseas office this month, reports Bloomberg. According to agency sources, following London and Dublin, the American company will open an office in Tokyo.

OpenAI founder and CEO Sam Altman spoke about the possible opening of an office in the Japanese capital back in April 2023 during a meeting with the country’s Prime Minister Fumio Kishida. The company wants to expand its Japanese-language services so as not to lose out to local technology corporations such as SoftBank and Nippon Telegraph & Telephone (NTT) in the market. In addition, the company intends to work with the Japanese government to develop regulatory standards for the field of AI.

OpenAI introduced the ChatGPT language model in November 2022. In the first five days since its release, the chatbot received more than 1 million users and the nickname “Google Killer.” The startup was actively supported by Microsoft, which invested tens of billions of dollars in OpenAI. So, recently it became known about a joint project of two data center companies Stargate worth approximately $100 billion. Most of the costs of its creation, according to media reports, will be covered by Microsoft.
