OpenAI, an American artificial intelligence (AI) research organisation, has rehired his sacked CEO, Sam Altman, a few hours after he was employed by Microsoft.
NewsWireNGR reports that the Silicon Valley CEO behind the artificial intelligence-powered chatbots ChatGPT and GPT-4, was been abruptly fired by OpenAI’s board of directors in a major shakeup for the tech industry.
Hours after the development, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella announced that Sam Altman will be joining to lead Microsoft’s new advanced AI research team.
However in a surprising development, OpenAI, on Wednesday announced “We have reached an agreement in principle for Sam Altman to return to OpenAI as CEO with a new initial board of Bret Taylor (Chair), Larry Summers, and Adam D’Angelo.
“We are collaborating to figure out the details. Thank you so much for your patience through this.”
Confirming the report, Sam posted on his X (formerly Twitter) account that; “i love openai, and everything i’ve done over the past few days has been in service of keeping this team and its mission together. when i decided to join msft on sun evening, it was clear that was the best path for me and the team. with the new board and w satya’s support, i’m looking forward to returning to openai, and building on our strong partnership with msft.”
