The main contributor of GAN network, Ian Goodfellow, works for OpenAI. I believe it is a non for profit organization. The main issue I’ve seen so far with AI is that despite the advancement of the research, the application of AI is relatively lagging. Also, the applications today mainly focus on the fields related to computer/phone. The real money will come from the applications applied to different domains such as medical, aviation, oceanography which computer scientists know very little about. It will take some time to have more cross domain experts to bring them forward.
