OpenAI recently added a former director of the National Security Agency (NSA) to its board of directors, prompting criticism from Edward Snowden.

Edward Snowden expressed his distrust of OpenAI and its products following the announcement of retired U.S. Army Gen. Paul Nakasone’s appointment to the board’s safety and security committee. Snowden warned against trusting the company and labeled the decision as a betrayal of everyone’s rights.

In the past, Snowden has been vocal about OpenAI’s lack of transparency, citing concerns about the training data used for its models. Despite hoping for tech companies to prioritize public interests over surveillance, Snowden’s recent tweet suggests a loss of faith in OpenAI.

Paul Nakasone’s role at OpenAI will focus on enhancing the company’s cybersecurity capabilities in response to evolving threats. This appointment comes after a period of leadership changes at OpenAI, with several new members joining the board following a tumultuous period.
