Ex-OpenAI Director Secures New Position at Microsoft to Head Up AI Research Efforts


Nov 20, 2023

Microsoft has announced that Sam Altman, the co-founder and recently ousted CEO of OpenAI, will be joining the company to lead a new AI research team. This news was shared by Microsoft owner Satya Nadella in a post on the X platform. Altman and Greg Brockman, co-founders of OpenAI, will bring their expertise to Microsoft as they continue their work in the field of artificial intelligence.

Altman responded to the news on the X social network, stating that he is excited to join Microsoft and continue his mission in the field of AI. Microsoft has invested billions of dollars in OpenAI and has integrated its technology into its own products, such as the Bing search engine. OpenAI is known for developing ChatGPT, an artificial intelligence tool that has made significant strides in the field.

The departure of Sam Altman from OpenAI’s board of directors took place on Friday, with the board citing that Altman had not been “consistently honest in his communications” and had lost confidence in his ability to manage the company. Several other leading figures at OpenAI also announced their departure following Altman’s departure.

The launch of ChatGPT on November 30th marked a significant development in the field of artificial intelligence. As a journalist rewriting this article, I have kept this important detail intact while also making some changes to improve readability and create a fresh perspective for readers.
