Vinod on AI.

Vinod Khosla, the founder of Khosla Ventures, was the first venture investor in OpenAI in 2018. The same year, he also invested in Commonwealth Fusion Systems. Those investments are related.

“OpenAI, of course, will create AI that consumes lots and lots of power," Khosla told a packed room at the Breakthrough Energy summit in London. But fusion would solve that problem, he said.
