Sam Altman Joins Microsoft A.I. Research Team
Sam Altman, the former CEO of OpenAI, has joined Microsoft to lead a new advanced A.I. research team. This was confirmed in a post by Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella.
Other former OpenAI members, including Greg Brockman, will likewise be part of this new team.
Altman was abruptly fired from OpenAI by the board, with Brockman resigning shortly after. Nonetheless, Microsoft will stay committed to its partnership with OpenAI. This was shown by their $10 Billion investment in the A.I. company earlier this year.
Satya Nadella stated, “We look forward to getting to know Emmet Shear and OAI’s new leadership team and working with them.”
On his part, Altman retweeted Nadella’s X post and stated, “The mission continues.”
Sam Altman’s Ouster from OpenAI
OpenAI announced Altman’s removal as CEO in a blog post, saying he was not consistently candid, thus hindering the board’s responsibilities. This led to shock waves in the tech industry, with Brockman announcing his resignation shortly after.
Altman was the public face of OpenAI after the release of ChatGPT. A report claimed the OpenAI board was in talks with Altman to reinstate him as CEO, but Twitch co- founder Emmett Shear was appointed instead.
