In a public statement on X, Greg Brockman, the cofounder and president of OpenAI, admitted that ChatGPT had made a mistake. Brockman was one of three co-founders of OpenAI along with Sam Altman and Elon Musk in 2015. However, recently, Altman, who was OpenAI’s CEO, was removed from his position by the board. Brockman also announced his departure from the company within hours of Altman’s dismissal.
Prior to Brockman’s announcement, Sam Altman had also made a statement regarding his departure from OpenAI. Just hours after Altman’s announcement, OpenAI President and co-founder Greg Brockman revealed that he too would be stepping down from his position at the company. This series of events has raised questions and concerns about the future of OpenAI and the leadership of the organization.
In his announcement on X, Brockman expressed his pride in what was built since the company’s inception 8 years ago, acknowledging the tough and great times that they had been through as well as the accomplishments they achieved. Despite not responding to Business Insider’s request for a comment, he expressed continued belief in the mission of creating safe AGI that benefits all of humanity.
