There's mounting pressure from investors for Sam Altman's reinstatement as CEO of OpenAI, following his controversial removal from the position, according to multiple sources.(source) OpenAI, the leading artificial intelligence (AI) company behind ChatGPT, made the announcement of Altman's departure on November 17, with Chief Technology Officer Mira Murati taking up the CEO role in the interim. Reasons cited included Altman's communication, which apparently lacked clarity and instilled doubts in the board's comprehensive understanding of the operations.
多Altman's removal has reportedly complicated the course of action for Thrive Capital which was anticipated to spearhead a tender offer for employee shares but has now withheld the funds. Reports suggest Thrive intends for Altman and OpenAI president Greg Brockman, who also quit following the removal, to be re-engaged with the organization. While it remains uncertain whether Altman would resume his role at OpenAI or commence work on a new AI venture, rumours of his return to OpenAI have been circulating.
In the backlash following Altman’s departure, OpenAI also saw the departure of three senior researchers, including Jakub Pachocki and Aleksander Madry. Meanwhile, Charles Hoskinson, Cardano's founder, has proposed a collaboration with Altman on establishing a decentralized language learning model on the Cardano blockchain.(source)
