Microsoft has announced that Sam Altman, the co-founder and recently ousted chief executive of OpenAI, will be joining the company to lead a new AI research team. This move comes after Altman’s departure from OpenAI, where he was dismissed from the board of directors due to issues with communication and management.
Altman responded to the news on social media, stating that he is excited about the opportunity to continue working in the field of artificial intelligence at Microsoft. The company has invested heavily in OpenAI and has integrated its technology into products such as the Bing search engine. OpenAI is known for developing ChatGPT, an artificial intelligence tool that has made significant advancements in the field.
The departure of several leading figures at OpenAI following Altman’s dismissal has caused some uncertainty about the future of the company. However, Microsoft’s investment in OpenAI suggests that they are committed to supporting its growth and development.
The launch of ChatGPT on November 30, 2022, marked a significant milestone in the field of artificial intelligence and paved the way for further advancements in this rapidly evolving technology.
