In a surprising turn of events, Microsoft has hired Sam Altman and Greg Brockman after OpenAI confirmed Altman’s firing. Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella made the announcement in a post on X, revealing that the pair and their colleagues will be leading a new advanced AI research team at Microsoft. This move raises questions about the future of OpenAI, as much of the talent may now be transitioning to Microsoft. It also raises concerns about the impact on Microsoft’s ChatGPT product. The announcement comes after speculation that Altman might return to OpenAI, following his sudden dismissal and the subsequent appointment of Twitch co-founder Emmett Shear as the new CEO. Talks between the parties reportedly broke down, leading to Altman and Brockman’s decision not to return. Microsoft, however, remains committed to its partnership with OpenAI. This is a developing story.
