It’s been a dramatic few days for artificial intelligence giant OpenAI, which saw CEO Sam Altman ousted from the company he co-founded before he and other OpenAI staff decamped to form a new “advanced AI research team” at Microsoft. The saga kicked off on Friday with the surprise announcement that Altman was out at OpenAI, with the board of directors releasing a statement that Altman “was not consistently candid in his communications with the board, hindering its ability to exercise its responsibilities.” The board added that it “no longer has confidence in his ability to continue leading OpenAI.” Events quickly started to spiral out of control when Brockman refused to play ball, tweeting that “based on today’s news, I quit.” Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella announced that Microsoft had tapped Altman to head an in-house “advanced AI research team,” alongside other unspecified colleagues. Meanwhile, former Twitch CEO Emmett Shear announced that he’d been tapped as OpenAI’s new interim CEO, calling it a “once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.” Ilya Sutskever, the instigator of the weekend chaos, expressed regrets for what happened. This news from OpenAI has caused a lot of drama and uncertainty, and signals a major shift in the company’s leadership. It remains to be seen what the outcome of this situation will be, but many are hoping for a positive resolution. #OpenAI #ArtificialIntelligence #AI #Microsoft
