Sam Altman

Sam Altman, who was the CEO and co-founder of OpenAI that created ChatGPT, was fired by the OpenAI board on 17th November, Friday. The reason for Altman getting fired so suddenly by the company’s board was due to not being “candid” about what he was creating.
Since OpenAI proud itself in creating AI technology that does not harm humans. The board says the latest AI technology Altman was working on exceeds human intelligence or matching it which he was not clear about.
OpenAI said, “He was not consistently candid in his communications with the board, hindering its ability to exercise its responsibilities.” Previously, Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla, warned the world about the implications of developing AI and that it can be far more dangerous to humans than we can imagine.
After being fired from the company, Sam Altman is set to join Microsoft and will lead its “new advanced AI research team.” On 20th November, Monday Microsoft CEO and Chairman, Satya Nadella announced that OpenAI co-founder, Altman, Greg Brockman and more former employees of OpenAI would oversee Microsoft’s new AI advanced research team.
On X, formerly known as Twitter, Nadella wrote, “We look forward to moving quickly to provide them with the resources needed for their success.” Nadella mentioned that Microsoft is looking forward to working with this new OpenAI’s leadership team including, Emmett Shear, the interim CEO and his commitment with the AI startup where it had invested 13 billion dollars.
As Nadella wrote on X, “We remain committed to our partnership with OpenAI and have confidence in our product roadmap, our ability to continue to innovate with everything we announced at Microsoft Ignite, and in continuing to support our customers and partners. We look forward to getting to know Emmett Shear and OAI’s new leadership team and working with them. And we’re extremely excited to share the news that Sam Altman and Greg Brockman, together with colleagues, will be joining Microsoft to lead a new advanced AI research team. We look forward to moving quickly to provide them with the resources needed for their success.”
