Microsoft to Hire OpenAI’s Sam Altman

Sam Altman and Greg Brockman, co-founders of OpenAI, will lead a new advanced AI research team at Microsoft. This was announced by Satya Nadella, CEO of Microsoft. Sam Altman came to the forefront of attention with the launch of the artificial intelligence chatbot OpenAI last year.

Altman was unexpectedly sacked by OpenAI’s board on Friday. Together with the board of directors, co-founder Ilya Sutskever fired Altman. Co-founder Brockman was also removed as member and chairman of the board of directors. Shortly afterwards, Brockman announced his exit from OpenAI.

“The mission continues,” Altman posted on X, formerly Twitter.

The sacking had led to a scramble among the OpenAI investors who have been pressuring the OpenAI’s board to reinstate Sam Altman as CEO.
