Sam Altman to join Microsoft’s AI Team

Microsoft hires Sam Alton to their AI team

Sam Altman, former OpenAI CEO, is joining Microsoft to lead a new advanced AI research team, along with former OpenAI President Greg Brockman. Microsoft, having invested billions in OpenAI, expresses commitment to the partnership and plans to provide resources for success. Altman’s departure from OpenAI followed concerns about communication with the board. Despite this, OpenAI investors sought his return as CEO, but the company appointed former Twitch CEO Emmett Shear. Altman and Brockman are now integrated into Microsoft’s AI team.
