Sam Altman, the former CEO of OpenAI, has not given up on returning to his position after being abruptly fired. He and former chairman Greg Brockman are reportedly in talks with Microsoft to run a new artificial intelligence lab. However, they still want to go back to OpenAI. There is a threat that the company’s 500 workers will resign if the company’s board does not resign and the fired executives are not reinstated.
Ilya Sutskever, the co-founder of OpenAI and the company’s CEO, who was reportedly one of the main reasons for Altman’s ouster, is also supporting their desire to regain their positions. Satya Nadella, Microsoft’s chief executive, has also expressed interest in bringing back the two fired executives and noted that changes must occur around the governance of OpenAI.
Meanwhile, niche newsletters are gaining attention on various forums. Topics such as their relevance, how they can help in professional development and their potential to be updated in a particular area of interest are discussed on different platforms. Both the Sam Altman situation and niche newsletters are hot topics in forums and clubs.
