Microsoft hires Sam Altman, Greg Brockman after departure from OpenAI
Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella posted on X, stating that the company is hiring both former OpenAI CEO Sam Altman and president Greg Brockman.
On Nov. 20, Nadella posted that he is “extremely excited to share the news that Sam Altman and Greg Brockman, together with colleagues, will be joining Microsoft to lead a new advanced AI research team.”
The post also said that the company remains committed to its partnership with OpenAI and looks forward to getting to know its new CEO Emmett Shear, who replaced Altman on Nov. 20.
Altman was ousted from OpenAI by its board of directors on Nov. 17 due to being allegedly “not consistently candid in his communications with the board,” after which Brockman stepped down from his position on the OpenAI board.
This is a developing story, and further information will be added as it becomes available.
