By the end of 2019 will OpenAI have released details of a for-profit product, service, or partnership?

Question

This question is related to others concerning OpenAI LP, including:


On March 12 OpenAI announced that:

We’ve created OpenAI LP, a new “capped-profit” company that allows us to rapidly increase our investments in compute and talent while including checks and balances to actualize our mission.

The goal of this question is to assess the likelihood of whether, by the end of 2019, OpenAI LP will have taken concrete steps towards generating profits as a business.

By the end of 2019 will OpenAI have released details of a for-profit product, service, or partnership?

The specific resolution details are ambiguous and will be judged as best we can to determine if an announcement of a product, service, or partnership counts as part of OpenAI’s “for-profit” initiative. The key determinant is whether we expect OpenAI to have an expectation of profit from the launched business line.
