Sam Altman’s Dreams of Returning to OpenAI Shattered

OpenAI had abruptly removed CEO Sam Altman from his position, appointing Twitch’s co-founder Emmett Shear as the new CEO. Meanwhile, Sam Altman is joining Microsoft, marking a significant shift in leadership dynamics.

OpenAI Board of Directors removed the company’s CEO, Sam Altman, in a sudden decision last Friday. The board stated that Altman departed from the company due to a ”lack of sincerity in his communications.”

After appointing CTO Mira Murati as the interim CEO, OpenAI engaged in weekend discussions regarding the potential reinstatement of Sam Altman as CEO. Despite indications from Altman’s social media and conversations in the vicinity hinting at a possible return, the negotiations did not yield positive results. Instead, Emmett Shear, the co-founder of Twitch, was hired as the new CEO. Shear had resigned as the CEO of Twitch in March, owned by Amazon.

Altman Lands a New Job

Shortly after this announcement, President Greg Brockman and several senior researchers left the company. Despite these developments, Microsoft, OpenAI’s largest investor and partner, affirmed its commitment to the company. Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella stated, “We remain committed to our partnership with OpenAI and have confidence in our product roadmap.” Additionally, Nadella announced that Sam Altman and former President Greg Brockman had joined Microsoft to “lead a new and advanced artificial intelligence research team.”
