OpenAI Removes CEO Sam Altman, But Contemplates Reversing Decision

OpenAI CEO Sam Altman has announced his departure from the company, citing a lack of confidence in his leadership abilities. In a blog post, OpenAI stated that Altman’s departure was the result of a “deliberate review process” which found him at fault for not being consistently candid in his communications with the board of directors. The board expressed their gratitude for Altman’s contributions to the company but stated that new leadership is necessary as OpenAI moves forward. Mira Murati, OpenAI’s CTO, will be stepping up as interim CEO while the company searches for a permanent replacement.

Altman’s departure comes shortly before the one-year anniversary of ChatGPT, a language model developed by OpenAI. The company’s decision to replace Altman was reportedly influenced by pressure from investors and reported staff resignations. Altman himself expressed his love for his time at OpenAI, stating that it was transformative for him personally and potentially for the world as well. He also mentioned that he will share more about his future plans later.

Mira Murati, who has been with OpenAI for five years and has experience in governance and policy, is seen as qualified for the role of interim CEO. The board of directors expressed their confidence in her ability to lead the company during this transition period. Greg Brockman, OpenAI co-founder and chairman of the board, has also left the company. It was in his apartment that OpenAI was originally launched.

As the story continues to develop, we have reached out to OpenAI for comment and will provide updates as more information becomes available.
