The recent dismissal of co-founder Sam Altman from OpenAI has sparked a wave of resignations among hundreds of employees at the company. According to reports, over 500 out of 770 employees have threatened to join Microsoft if the board of directors does not resign. The decision to fire Altman has been met with criticism and displeasure by the company’s senior officials, including Ilya Sutskever, the chief scientist, and top executive Mira Murati, who was offered the position of CEO but declined it.
The big surprise for OpenAI came when Emmett Shear, co-founder of Twitch, was appointed as its new CEO. Shear’s appointment is seen as a turning point for the company as he will manage the reorganization of leadership teams and address key concerns. His previous experience on Twitch and his understanding of technology will be crucial in this time of change and expectation.
Sam Altman has announced that he will be joining Microsoft to lead an advanced AI division. Microsoft’s CEO, Sattya Nadella, confirmed that the firm remains committed to partnering with OpenAI. However, this news raises questions about the future of the alliance between Microsoft and OpenAI.
