Former CEO of OpenAI, creator of the ChatGPT chatbot, Sam Altman will lead a new research group at Microsoft
Sam Altman will not return to OpenAI
Former OpenAI CEO Sam Altman will lead Microsoft's artificial intelligence research group, CEO Satya Nadella announced.
If anyone thought that the same scenario as with Steve Jobs would happen again, it won't happen!. Recall that after losing power in a fight with the board of directors in 1985, Jobs was fired from the company, after which he organized NeXT, which specialized in the business and higher education markets. In 1996, Jobs returned to Apple as CEO, a position he held until his death in 2011. Sam Altman, the former CEO of OpenAI, who was fired from the company recently, has been hired by Microsoft.
Altman was abruptly fired from his position by the company's board of directors amid concerns about his commitment to the OpenAI mission. The board of directors cited issues of lack of confidence that led to his departure.
Altman was followed by another leading person in the company - Greg Brockman, who stood at the origins of ChatGPT development. There have been rumors that other employees are also planning to leave OpenAI.
Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella expressed his delight at having Altman and Brockman join Microsoft and emphasized the company's willingness to provide them with the necessary resources.
In particular, Nadella took to social media to reaffirm Microsoft's commitment to its partnership with OpenAI, saying, "We remain committed to our partnership with OpenAI and confident in our product roadmap." The announcement reflects Microsoft's strategic intent to maintain close collaboration with OpenAI while expanding its own AI research capabilities.
We believe that Microsoft will benefit from the arrival of such great people in the field of AI, because it will make the company's services competitive.
