After the dismissal of co-founder Sam Altman from OpenAI, hundreds of employees have threatened to resign and join Microsoft if the board of directors does not resign. The company’s senior officials expressed their criticism and displeasure at the decision to fire Altman. Included in the list of signatories’ names was Ilya Sutskever, the company’s chief scientist, and top executive Mira Murati, who was offered to replace Altman as CEO but rejected the offer.
Reports indicate that more than 500 out of 770 employees at OpenAI have threatened to join Microsoft, who has assured them that there are positions available for them in the company if they decide to join. The board was reportedly evaluating repatriating Altman, but the big surprise was the appointment of Emmett Shear, the co-founder of Twitch, as the new CEO of OpenAI.
Emmett Shear’s appointment is seen as a turning point for OpenAI as he is expected to manage the reorganization of leadership teams and address the company’s key concerns. His previous experience on Twitch and his understanding of the dynamic world of technology will be crucial in these times of change and expectation.
Sam Altman has recently announced that he will join Microsoft to lead an advanced AI division, and Microsoft’s CEO, Sattya Nadella, confirmed that the firm remains committed to partnering with OpenAI. This news resolves one of the great soap operas in the field of big technology. However, it also raises questions about the future of the alliance between Microsoft and OpenAI.
