In a post on X on Monday, Sutskever stated, “I deeply regret my participation in the board’s actions. I never intended to harm OpenAI. I love everything we’ve built together and I will do everything I can to reunite the company.” This comes after Altman was removed as CEO of OpenAI and failed attempts to bring him back into the company over the weekend.

As a co-founder of OpenAI and a key contributor to the development of ChatGPT, Sutskever’s statement carries weight within the organization. His public expression of regret and commitment to reuniting the company reflects the internal turmoil and efforts to resolve the situation. The outcome of these efforts will have a significant impact on the future of OpenAI and its leadership.
