On Monday, Microsoft announced that Sam Altman, the co-founder and recently ousted CEO of OpenAI, will be joining the company to lead a new AI research team. This move follows Altman’s departure from OpenAI, where he was dismissed from the board of directors on Friday due to concerns over his communication and leadership abilities.
Altman responded to the news on social media, stating that the mission of OpenAI continues and that he is excited about his new role at Microsoft. The company has invested billions of dollars in AI research and has integrated this technology into its own products such as the Bing search engine.
OpenAI is a startup that developed ChatGPT, an artificial intelligence tool that has had a significant impact on the field of AI. The first version of ChatGPT was launched on November 30, 2022, marking a major milestone in this rapidly growing field.
