Microsoft has announced the hiring of Sam Altman, co-founder of OpenAI and the company behind ChatGPT. This news comes after Altman was suddenly removed as CEO of OpenAI last week, causing confusion in the AI world. Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella expressed excitement about bringing Altman and Greg Brockman, another OpenAI co-founder, along with other managers from the company to lead a new advanced AI research team.
Altman and Shear confirmed the news themselves on social media, with Shear describing his new position as a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Altman’s removal came after an internal review at OpenAI, which has led to changes in its management structure. Brockman has stepped down as chairman of the board but remains 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.
