Microsoft has announced the hiring of Sam Altman, co-founder of OpenAI, as the head of a new advanced AI research team. This move comes after Altman was suddenly removed as CEO of OpenAI last week, sparking confusion in the AI world. Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella expressed excitement about bringing Altman and Greg Brockman, another OpenAI co-founder, and other managers from the company on board to lead the new team.
Nadella also expressed interest in working with OpenAI’s new CEO, Emmett Shear. The news of Altman’s removal and the addition of new leadership at OpenAI was confirmed by both Altman and Shear on social media. Shear described his new position as a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, while Altman’s removal came after an internal review at OpenAI.
The company has also announced changes in its management structure, with Brockman stepping down as chairman of the board but remaining 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.
