Microsoft has announced the hiring of Sam Altman, the co-founder of OpenAI and creator of ChatGPT, to lead a new advanced AI research team. 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, and other managers from the company on board to lead a new team focused on cutting-edge AI research.
Altman and Shear confirmed the news themselves on social media, with Shear describing his new position as a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. The removal of Altman came after an internal review at OpenAI, which has seen significant changes in its management structure. Brockman is stepping down as chairman of the board but will remain as president. These changes come as OpenAI’s creations such as ChatGPT and Dall-E image generator have brought generative AI into the mainstream, sparking debates about its use and ethical implications.
