Sam Altman, the brain of ChatGPT and former CEO of OpenAI, is likely to return to the firm after a few days of turmoil that saw him leave the company he co-founded.
Altman confirmed his return on Wednesday morning, following rumors of serious negotiations with the OpenAI board all day Tuesday.
He stated that the return is supported by Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella, who revealed on Monday that Altman and his colleagues from OpenAI would be joining Microsoft.
The OpenAI creator stated that joining Microsoft two days after being sacked by the OpenAI board was the finest option he could have made at the moment.
- “I love OpenAI, and everything I’ve done over the past few days has been in service of keeping this team and its mission together. When I decided to join Microsoft on Sunday evening, it was clear that was the best path for me and the team. With the new board and with Satya’s support, I’m looking forward to returning to OpenAI and building on our strong partnership with Microsoft,” Altman stated in a post on X Wednesday morning.
OpenAI also released a short statement confirming that it has reached an agreement in principle for Altman to return under a new board.
- “We have reached an agreement in principle for Sam Altman to return to OpenAI as CEO with a new initial board of Bret Taylor (Chair), Larry Summers, and Adam D’Angelo. We are collaborating to figure out the details. Thank you so much for your patience through this,” the company said in a post on X.
