Microsoft has announced that Sam Altman, the co-founder and recently ousted CEO of OpenAI, will be joining the company to lead a new AI research team. This news was revealed by Microsoft owner Satya Nadella in a post on the X platform.
Altman and Greg Brockman, co-founders of OpenAI, will be bringing their expertise and experience to Microsoft as they work to further advance the field of artificial intelligence. This move comes after Altman’s departure from OpenAI’s board of directors on Friday, citing inconsistent communication and loss of confidence in his management abilities.
Several other leading figures at OpenAI also left the company following Altman’s departure, including Greg Brockman. However, Altman responded on the X social network stating that he remains committed to the mission of OpenAI and believes that this move is a positive step forward for both companies.
OpenAI has already made significant strides in the field of AI with its first version of ChatGPT launching on November 30th last year, marking a major milestone in AI development. With Microsoft’s investment and support, it is likely that we will see even more exciting developments from this dynamic duo in the future.
