Sam Altman and Greg Brockman, co-founders of ChatGPIT maker OpenAI, joining Microsoft are still not certain. If the board member who fired them resigns, both of them may return. The Verge has published a report regarding this.
After the removal of Altman and Brockman from OpenAI, on Monday, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella said that his company is hiring both. He will lead Microsoft's new advanced AI research team. Apart from these, some employees will also join.
Satya Nadella also spoke to CNBC about Altman joining Microsoft. In this, Nadella was directly asked whether Sam and 700 employees of openAi would join Microsoft? Nadella said- 'It is to select the OpenAI board, management and employees.
I am open to both options. Microsoft wants to continuously innovate. For this, it has entered into an exclusive partnership with OpenAI. On his seat on the board of Microsoft's OpenAI, he said - It is clear that there should be some changes in governance.
After Altman was fired from OpenAI, the employees there have asked the company's board of directors to step down. If this is not done, 505 out of 700 employees have threatened to resign collectively. Board member Ilya Sutskever and Chief Technology Officer (CTO) Mira Murati are also among those threatening to resign.
It was Ilya Sutskever who informed Altman about his removal over video call. Meera Murati was given the responsibility of interim CEO by the board after Altman was removed. However, the company on Monday appointed former Twitch CEO Emmett Shear as interim CEO of OpenAI. CNN has posted the letter threatening resignation on X.
Emmett Shear, born 1983, is an American. Shear graduated in computer science from Yale University in 2005.
Shear created the live video streaming platform Twitch in 2003 and became CEO of the company in August 2011.
In 2014, Amazon bought Twitch for about Rs 8 thousand crores. Shear resigned as CEO in March 2023.
