Sam Altman, the Former Head of OpenAI, is Going to Head Microsoft’s New AI Group

Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella has announced that Sam Altman, the former CEO of OpenAI, will be joining the company to head a new advanced AI research division.

On the social networking site X, formerly known as Twitter, Nadella announced that Altman and Greg Brockman, the former president and board chair of OpenAI, will be joining Microsoft to head a new advanced artificial intelligence research team. Brockman will be joining Altman in this capacity.

Microsoft, a major player in technology, closely collaborates on technology with OpenAI and has made billion-dollar investments in the company.

“We’re eager to get started on giving them the tools they need to succeed,” Nadella remarked.

“With everything we announced at Microsoft Ignite, we can continue to develop. We also have faith in our product roadmap, our capacity to assist our customers and partners, and our cooperation with OpenAI.”

Resharing Nadella’s article, Altman himself added the rather mysterious remark, “the mission continues.”

2019 saw Altman take the helm of the business. The technical leader Mira Murati will temporarily take Altman’s position, the board of OpenAI stated late on Friday. According to the post, Altman’s discussions with the board were not always truthful.

A faction of OpenAI investors persisted in their efforts to reinstate Altman as CEO during the weekend, notwithstanding this.

Overnight on Sunday, OpenAI announced that Emmett Shear, the former CEO of Twitch, will take over as CEO of the artificial intelligence startup. A few hours later, Nadella declared that Brockman, who together with Altman had resigned from the firm on Friday, would also be internalised into the Microsoft team, along with Altman.
