Sam Altman, the former CEO of OpenAI, has been working tirelessly to regain his position after being abruptly fired. Along with the former president, Greg Brockman, he is reportedly negotiating with Microsoft to run a new artificial intelligence laboratory. Despite their efforts, they are still determined to return to OpenAI. The threat of 500 company workers resigning if the company’s board doesn’t resign and the fired executives aren’t reinstated only adds fuel to their determination.
One of Altman’s supporters is Ilya Sutskever, co-founder of OpenAI and company executive. Sutskever was allegedly one of the main reasons behind Altman’s dismissal. However, he is now supporting the desire for Altman and Brockman to regain their positions. This support is also backed by Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella who stated that changes need to happen around the governance of OpenAI and that options are open for the two fired executives.
Meanwhile in other news, niche newsletters are gaining attention in various forums. These newsletters cover specific topics such as relevance and how they can help with professional growth, among other things. Both Sam Altman’s situation and niche newsletters have become hot topics in forums and clubs alike.
