Executive Shake-Up at OpenAI with Altman’s Ouster Sparks Investor Backlash and Speculation

Both Sam Altman and Greg Brockman, high-ranking executives at OpenAI, with Altman serving as the CEO, departed the startup after a tumultuous meeting last Friday. However, there are ongoing rumors suggesting that they are currently in discussions with board members to make a comeback to the company.

The catalyst for this debate was the negative response from investors and Altman supporters to his departure. This group exerted pressure on the startup’s board to reinstate him. Six sources, speaking on the condition of anonymity, confirmed this information to The New York Times.

Microsoft, a major investor that injected $13 billion into OpenAI, is reported to be a leading force behind the campaign advocating for Altman’s return. Investors from OpenAI, who have expressed support for Altman’s reinstatement, have also signaled their willingness to invest further should Altman decide to embark on a new venture. Discussions about such a possibility began almost immediately after Altman’s forced departure, according to insiders.

However, there is no guarantee that both Altman and Brockman will return to OpenAI. The company operates under the control of a nonprofit organization, with the board wielding the authority to govern the activities of its AI-focused subsidiary. Consequently, investors may not have an official say in determining the fate of the startup or its leadership.

The San Francisco-based startup gained significant attention last year with the launch of the ChatGPT chatbot, showcasing the capabilities of artificial intelligence. Altman, as one of the founders of OpenAI, swiftly became a prominent figure in the AI industry. Meanwhile, tech giants like Google, Meta, and others raced to assert their dominance in the field.

The abrupt announcement from OpenAI on Friday revealed that Altman had been removed as CEO by the board, citing that “he had not been consistently forthcoming in his communications with the board.” However, the board refrained from providing additional details.

According to reports, Altman was invited to a video meeting with the board and was promptly dismissed, as stated by Brockman. Despite being the chairman of the company’s board, Brockman clarified that he did not participate in the meeting and subsequently announced his departure from the company.
