It has been an incredibly dramatic weekend over at OpenAI, concluding with Satya Nadella announcing that Sam Altman and Greg Brockman "together with colleagues" will join Microsoft "to lead a new advanced AI research team." Microsoft is the most important investor in OpenAI and uses ChatGPT to power its Bing Chat/Copilot services.
Hours earlier, news dropped that the OpenAI board chose Emmett Shear as the company's CEO. That's OpenAI's third CEO in as many days. OpenAI fired Altman on Friday, with Mira Murati having acted as interim CEO. Then, reports over the weekend said the board was willing to hire Sam Altman back as CEO. And the former CEO confirmed that he was back at OpenAI headquarters negotiating a new deal.
It's still unclear what caused the rift between the Altman/Brockman side and Ilya Sutskever, prompting the latter to engineer the coup on Friday. If anything, what happened between Friday and early Monday sounds like a ChatGPT hallucination. You'll have a hard time believing any of it and feel compelled to seek more information while you speculate on what went on and what will happen next.
The post ChatGPT could not have hallucinated OpenAI’s CEO mess any better: Microsoft hires Sam Altman appeared first on BGR.
