Sam Altman Returns as CEO at Open AI

OpenAI has reinstated Sam Altman as its Chief Executive Officer. This decision comes just a week after Altman was dismissed by the board of directors. The reinstatement is part of a broader restructuring that includes the formation of a new board of directors.

The new board will be chaired by Bret Taylor, former Chief Executive of Salesforce, who brings a wealth of experience in technology leadership. Joining him will be Larry Summers, former US Treasury Secretary, known for his expertise in economic policy. 

These appointments reflect OpenAI’s commitment to robust and diverse leadership as it continues to navigate the rapidly evolving landscape of artificial intelligence.

Also notable is the return of Greg Brockman, co-founder and president of OpenAI, who had resigned following Altman’s initial dismissal. 

While Brockman’s specific role in this new phase has not been clarified, his comeback alongside Altman suggests a strategic realignment at the top levels of the company.

Under the new arrangement, Sam Altman will operate under the guidance of this refreshed board. 

This includes Adam D’Angelo, an existing member of the OpenAI board and the CEO of Quora. D’Angelo’s continued presence ensures continuity and a link to the organization’s recent past.

The relationship with Microsoft also seems to be very close. According to the post below:
