Sept 14 (Reuters) - Artificial intelligence leader OpenAI is opening an office in Dublin, the Microsoft (MSFT.O)-backed company announced Thursday. Its headquarters are in San Francisco and it announced it was opening a London office in June. The Dublin office will not be the company's European headquarters and there will not be an executive running the office, at least not yet, Kwon said. In opening a Dublin office, OpenAI is following a well-established American tech company strategy. Tax implications did not play a role in the decision, as OpenAI is not profitable, Kwon said.
