At the moment, the news about the ousted OpenAI leaders Sam Altman and Geg Brockman continues. Microsoft boss Satya Nadella announced on Monday morning that the two were going to the Redmond company. He also sends a disguised request to the current OpenAI board.

On LinkedIn, Nadella writes that Microsoft is sticking to OpenAI and has confidence in the product roadmap – this particularly applies to “everything that was announced at the Microsoft Ignite event.” Essentially, the company announced that it would put AI in all of its products; there are copilots everywhere.
Satya Nadella wants to meet Emmett Shear and the new leadership
“We are excited to meet and work with Emmett Shear and OpenAI’s new leadership team,” continued Nadella. After Altman’s expulsion and the subsequent pressure from investors – especially Microsoft – the board of OpenAI declared its willingness to resign. Apparently, however, the announcement essentially remained the same. Nadella is now demanding that the board implement this.
Nadella continued, “We are excited to announce that Sam Altman and Greg Brockman, along with colleagues, will be joining Microsoft to lead a new Advanced AI research team.” They will quickly be provided with the resources they need to be successful.
Microsoft is thus strengthening its in-house competencies for AI development. The OpenAI board, however, receives a public slap in the face.
There will likely be further news regarding the personnel carousel at OpenAI shortly. The development remains exciting. It was only on Monday morning in our time that it was announced that OpenAI had brought Emmett Shear, the former CEO of Twitch, on board after the board had tried to win Altman back after his expulsion on Friday.
