OpenAI CEO Fired by Board of Directors

What happens when you lose your key stakeholders trust? You’re out, more quickly than ever before.

Here’s a prime example.

Open AI’s founder and CEO Sam Altman has been fired by his board of directors. They’ve pushed him out for “a lack of candor”, one year after he brought the influential, game-changing ChatGPT to the market.

This from a company where artificial intelligence writes decidedly non-candid content every minute of every day.

What could this mean? Presumably it means the board believes Altman lied to them or withheld important information. Or maybe it’s a power struggle over the future of AI.

Perhaps the board could ask AI to write the press release?

Here’s a link to the Guardian’s article:
