Unprecedented Turmoil at Open AI: Altman's Abrupt Dismissal

Sam Altman, Open AI's former CEO, faced an unexpected ousting from the company on November 18th. The board's decision was rooted in concerns about Altman's transparency during communications, a crucial factor impacting his ability to fulfill leadership responsibilities

The announcement of his departure came just a week after the conclusion of Open AI DevDay, leaving the AI community speculating about the internal dynamics at play.

Adding to the complexity, Greg Brockman, Co-founder and former CTO of Open AI, took to X (formerly known as Twitter) on the same day to publicly detail the sequence of events leading to both his and Altman's termination from the company.


In the meantime, Mira Murati, Chief Technology Officer, has been appointed as the interim CEO to steer Open AI through these tumultuous times. 

However, the episode didn't end with Altman's departure. More than 500 of Open AI's 700 employees pledged to resign collectively if their demands were not met. 

The employees, expressing solidarity with their former CEO, signed an open letter demanding the reinstatement of Altman. This extraordinary show of loyalty threw the organisation into a state of unprecedented uncertainty. As the board grapples with the employee uprising, the AI community is keenly observing how Open AI navigates this crisis. The outcome will undoubtedly shape the future trajectory of Open AI and set a precedent for how such challenges are managed in the industry. Now Sam and Greg have come back to Open AI and this turmoil has offcially closed.
