Microsoft has recently announced the hiring of Sam Altman, co-founder of OpenAI and the company behind ChatGPT. This news comes after Altman was abruptly removed as CEO of OpenAI last week, leading to confusion in the AI industry. Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella expressed his excitement about bringing Altman, Greg Brockman, another OpenAI co-founder, and other managers from the company on board to lead a new advanced AI research team. Nadella also expressed interest in working with OpenAI’s current CEO, Emmett Shear.
Altman and Shear confirmed the news of their removal and the addition of new leadership at OpenAI on social media. Shear described his new position as a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, while Altman’s removal came after an internal review at OpenAI. The company has announced changes in its management structure, with Brockman stepping down as chairman of the board but remaining as the company’s president. These changes have occurred as OpenAI’s creations, such as ChatGPT and the Dall-E image generator, have brought generative AI into the mainstream, sparking debates about its use and ethical implications.
