The torch bearer of Artificial Intelligence (AI) chatbots, OpenAI shocked everyone in the tech world after firing its iconic CEO Sam Altman. Altman was the one who established the brand name of OpenAI all over the world and made ChatGPT a household word. It was no wonder that he emerged as the face of AI globally. However, it seemed that back in his own company, there were many who did not agree with the way he was working and they managed to get him sacked with the majority in the board voting in favor of an ouster. Following the sacking of Altman, other people from the company resigned including President Greg Brockman. The move was not welcomed by many involved in the company though. Now, the board members of Open AI are under intense pressure from investors to take Altman back. Some reports are also suggesting that the board might resign in the upcoming days. Check out the series of events in this case that have happened and which are laying the grounds for the return of Altman:

The Verge reports that this may push Altman to go his separate ways and set up his own company. Expectations are that there will be mass resignations at OpenAI soon. Where that leaves interim CEO Mira Murati is still unknown. Her position in such a situation, has become untenable.
After the OpenAI decided to oust Sam Altman, it led to fierce disagreements and debates between the chief executive and the board. These arguments included the different opinions on AI safety, the speed of development of technology, and the commercialization of the company. This information wasRead more on tech.hindustantimes.com
