Sam Altman is one of the backers behind a new AI startup called Induced AI. And in bad news for the OpenAI creator, Kenya has shut down his Worldcoin crypto project. A Kenyan parliamentary committee established to investigate Worldcoin issued a report saying the crypto service should be suspended including blacklisting the IP addresses of websites related to its activities until such time that the East African nation can establish regulations over virtual currencies.

So, this is not just a blow to Worldcoin but to all crypto services.

The Kenyan parliamentary committee also called for a criminal investigation into the German firm Tools for Humanity GmbH which is building Worldcoin, alleging violations of the country’s privacy laws.

At issue is how the firm’s technology can scan people’s eyes for identification.

Worldcoin says it is building the world’s “largest identity and financial network as a public utility, giving ownership to everyone.” The company says it aims to create universal access to the global economy regardless of country or background, accelerating the transition to an economic future that welcomes and benefits every person on the planet.

This is all related to Sam Altman’s quest to promote more AI in the world.

As for Induced AI, the firm founded earlier this year says it enables businesses to input their workflows in plain English, subsequently converting the instructions into pseudo-code in real time for numerous repetitive tasks typically managed by back offices. Induced’s browser has built-in anti-bot detection capabilities that allow it to fly under the radar of most anti-bot measures. You can run hundreds of parallel scraping, data capture or action workflows. It also has built-in capabilities to handle CAPTCHAs and fingerprinting.

Aryan Sharma, the 18 year old co-founder and CEO of Induced AI said, “We’ve purpose-built a browser environment on top of Chromium that’s designed for autonomous workflow runs. It has its own memory, file system, and authentication credentials (email, phone number) to do complex flows. As far as I know, we’re the first to take this approach of redesigning the browser for native AI agent use.”

Altman founded OpenAI with his then-boyfriend Nick Sivo. And Altman revealed in the interview that at the time he worked so hard that he neglected his diet. As a result of not eating enough fruits and vegetables, Altman contracted Scurvy which results from not getting enough vitamin C.

Sam Altman was born in St. Louis Missouri to a Jewish family in 1985. Altman studied computer science at Stanford, but never completed his B.A. When he was only 19-years-old, Altman co-founded Loopta location-based social networking mobile application, and managed to raise $30 million for the new company at such a young age.

Altman is a vocal advocate for responsible AI development. He has argued that AI has the potential to solve some of the world’s most pressing problems, but that it is important to develop AI in a safe and ethical way.

Sam Altman has been named one of the 100 most influential people in the world by Time magazine and one of the “Best Young Entrepreneurs in Technology” by Businessweek. He is also the founder of the Long Term Future Fund, a venture capital fund that invests in companies working to solve long-term problems like climate change and pandemics.
