Sam Altman, the co-founder and former CEO of startup OpenAI, has announced that he will be working for Microsoft following his recent departure from his executive role. According to Microsoft’s CEO Satya Nadella, Altman, along with his OpenAI co-founder Greg Brockman, will lead a new AI research team at Microsoft and continue their mission in the field of artificial intelligence.
OpenAI is known for developing ChatGPT, an artificial intelligence tool, and Microsoft has already invested billions of dollars in the startup, incorporating its technology into products like the Bing search engine.
Altman’s dismissal from OpenAI, which was announced by the company’s board of directors, led to the departure of other leading figures within the organization, including Greg Brockman. However, Altman remains committed to the mission of OpenAI and looks forward to continuing his work in the field of AI at Microsoft.
The first version of ChatGPT was launched on November 30, 2022, marking a significant step forward in the development of artificial intelligence. Altman’s transition to Microsoft represents a continuation of his dedication to advancing the capabilities of AI technology.
