Sam Altman returns to OpenAI just a week after being fired

Executive Sam Altman returns to artificial intelligence giant OpenAI after his surprise firing on Friday. This has been confirmed by himself on his social network profile X. The details of his return are still being negotiated. Altman was the visible face of the company that developed the popular AI ‘chatbot’ ChatGPT, and had the support of several investors. The board of directors that dismissed Altman has in turn been dismissed today.

Among the investors supporting Altman’s return is Microsoft, which has invested several billion dollars in the company, which it considers its “partner” in the field of artificial intelligence. In fact, Microsoft had announced his signing.

Altman was fired by the OpenAI board on Friday, sparking an internal power struggle that caught the entire Silicon Valley off guard. In a statement, the board explained that the executive “was not consistently honest in his communications” with the body, which affected his ability “to exercise his responsibilities.”

“The board of directors no longer has confidence in your ability to continue leading OpenAI,” indicated the message, which also named Mira Murati, until now chief technology officer, as interim CEO while the body searches for a permanent candidate.

Altman co-founded and co-chaired OpenAI alongside Elon Musk, who left the company in 2018. The company has been on the crest of the wave of advances in generative artificial intelligence since launching ChatGPT, a ‘chatbot’ a year ago, that became viral for its ability to converse with human users.

It is structured as a non-profit company and governed by an independent majority board of directors, that is, without participation in the capital, so investors do not have decision-making power, at least officially.
