Sam Altman, the former CEO of OpenAI, is reportedly negotiating with Microsoft to run a new artificial intelligence laboratory. However, he and the former president, Greg Brockman, are still keen on returning to OpenAI. There is a threat of 500 company workers resigning if the company’s board doesn’t resign and the fired executives aren’t reinstated. Ilya Sutskever, co-founder of OpenAI and company executive, was allegedly one of the main reasons behind Altman’s dismissal but is supporting his desire to regain his position. Satya Nadella, CEO of Microsoft, stated that the options are open for the two fired executives and changes need to happen around the governance of OpenAI.

Topics such as their relevance, how they can help with professional growth, and their potential to keep one updated in a specific area of interest are being discussed in different platforms. Both Sam Altman’s situation and niche newsletters are hot topics in forums and clubs.
