Incredible Adventures of OpenAI Company
Let’s recall the history of the question. A few days ago, the board of directors of OpenAI removed from its membership and fired one of the founders of OpenAI, Sam Altman, with a rather wild wording that Mr. Altman was not honest, not capable of leading, and in general, an unpleasant type, not worthy of trust. Mr. Altman learned about the dismissal at the last moment. According to rumors, behind his dismissal was the second co-founder of the company, Ilya Sutskever, who is engaged in scientific research.
The board of directors did not inform any of the major investors about Altman’s dismissal.
Following Sam, prominent developer Greg Brockman also left the company, and many other employees of the company in an open letter said that they would also quit.
In Microsoft, which invested 10 billion in OpenAI, they were, to put it mildly, confused and said that they would not leave it like that.
After that, the board of directors of OpenAI said that they got carried away, so they call Altman and Brockman back, and the board itself promised to resign because of a serious mistake in strategy, which threatened the entire work of the company. But after a couple of hours, the board of directors said that they members of the board thought and decided not to dissolve themselves.
Well, in that case, Microsoft said, then we announce that Altman and Brockman are moving to work at Microsoft to head their own group at MS, which will deal with research in the field of artificial intelligence. Thus, Microsoft completely free of charge received in its staff two key people from OpenAI, who would surely drag other employees behind them. How much the capitalization of OpenAI would collapse at this – it is even difficult to imagine.
However, this, apparently, was well imagined by the board of directors, who again announced that the disgraced Altman would return to the company to his previous position, the board of directors would finally resign, and the new board of directors would be headed by Bret Taylor. Altman and Brockman themselves confirmed their return to OpenAI.
Microsoft said they were inspired by the fact that the amazing board of directors would finally be disbanded, and they look forward to further developing a strong partnership with the company led by Sam Altman, especially since it was Sam Altman who brought this cooperation with MS to the company, and if the old board of directors had any brains, they would have guessed that MS would not tolerate such a sudden dismissal of Sam Altman without agreeing with them.
Now everyone has a question: what was that? More strange spectacle with the participation of a large company, probably, no one has ever seen in their life.
