Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella announced on Monday (November 20) that Altman and Greg Brockman, another founder and chairman of OpenAI, will join Microsoft to lead the new advanced artificial intelligence Intelligence research team. After Altman was fired from OpenAI, Brockman announced his resignation last Friday.

Meanwhile, technology magazine Wired published a letter on Monday purportedly from some OpenAI executives threatening to reinstate Altman if the board that fired him does not. , they all resigned and followed Altman to join Microsoft.

The letter was signed by Ilya Sutskever, the company’s chief scientist. The Wall Street Journal pointed out that Sutskever’s signature on the letter was surprising because he was one of the four people who voted to remove Altman. One of the board members. Sutskover said Monday morning that he deeply regretted participating in the board’s actions. “I will do whatever I can to get the company back together,” he posted on X.

Microsoft is a key partner of OpenAI and has invested billions of dollars in the startup.

When Microsoft CEO Nadella announced that Altman would join the company, he said: “We remain committed to our partnership with OpenAI. We look forward to connecting with and working with OpenAI’s new CEO Emmett Shear and the new leadership team. co-operation.”

Altman’s firing from OpenAI shocked the technology world. In announcing Altman’s dismissal, the artificial intelligence startup said it made the decision after an evaluation found that he “was not always candid” in his communications with the board.

The sudden change in management also caught many employees off guard. Major investors had pushed for Altman to be reinstated. Although a large number of employees signed the letter to the board, however, the board stood by its decision, saying it was “the only way to advance and defend OpenAI’s mission.” The Wall Street Journal media reported that OpenAI currently has about 770 employees. More than 700 employees signed the letter to the board of directors.

Investors have said Altman’s sudden departure could lead to a brain drain at OpenAI and affect an upcoming stock sale.

The New York Times also believes that the loser is obviously OpenAI, and now, Microsoft is the clear winner. The media pointed out that although Microsoft CEO Nadella preferred to see Altman reinstated, when the board of directors insisted on its decision, he made a shrewd decision: to provide Altman, Brockman and their followers with Career Opportunities. Now, Microsoft can continue to use OpenAI’s models to power its products in the short term, while also providing funding and computing power to a new team led by Altman to build new Microsoft models in the long term and gain a group of talented artificial intelligence from OpenAI. Intelligence researchers. However, it is worth noting that the new AI project led by Altman, who joined Microsoft, will not be restricted by a non-profit management structure like OpenAI, which means that he may go faster.
