Microsoft has hired former OpenAI CEO Sam Altman to head up an “advanced AI research team” following his ouster from the AI firm. Satya Nadella, CEO of Microsoft, announced the news in a tweet, noting that Altman will join its in-house team alongside OpenAI co-founder Greg Brockman and “colleagues.” The board had claimed that Altman “was not consistently candid in his communications with the board, hindering its ability to exercise its responsibilities.” Microsoft CEO Nadella stated that “We remain committed to our partnership with OpenAI,” and that it would continue to move ahead with its product roadmap, including announcements made at the recent Microsoft Ignite conference. Former Twitch CEO Emmett Shear announced on Monday morning that he’d been tapped as the firm’s new interim CEO. He emphasized that “our partnership with Microsoft remains strong” and outlined a three-point plan for the next 30 days. This news is good for OpenAI and Microsoft, as it marks the beginning of a strategic partnership and a renewed commitment to progress. #OpenAI #Microsoft #AI #Partnership
