Sam Altman’s return to the CEO position is presently being discussed by the OpenAI board of directors, according to many people with firsthand knowledge of the situation. According to a person close to Altman, the board has approved this change in theory, which might allow Altman and OpenAI co-founder Greg Brockman to make their comebacks.
Ilya Sutskever, the chief scientist of OpenAI, Adam D’Angelo, the CEO of Quora, Tasha McCauley, the former CEO of GeoSim Systems, and Helen Toner, the head of the Georgetown Centre for Security and Emerging Technology Strategy, make up the current board of directors. None of these people own any stock in OpenAI.
Several reports indicate that Sutskever was a major factor in Altman‘s last dismissal, citing an internal power struggle between the product and research departments of the corporation.
If these talks are successful, Altman and Brockman’s return might signal a dramatic change in the company’s direction and have an impact on the strategies and products it develops for artificial intelligence (AI). At this point, it’s unclear exactly what these modifications entail and how they might affect things down the road. Stakeholders should keep a careful eye on the situation in order to get any updates.
