OpenAI’s drama comes to an end, as Microsoft shares a note reassuring the AI partnership

It’s safe to say Sam Altam is here to stay. Yes, it’s a silly introduction, but the whole OpenAI situation with the board firing the CEO, Sam Altman, has been a bit silly.

It’s safe to say Sam Altam is here to stay. Yes, it’s a silly introduction, but the whole OpenAI situation with the board firing the CEO, Sam Altman, has been a bit silly.

If you’re not aware of the situation, although we doubt it, as it was the talk of every newspaper, tech-focused or not, Sam Altman, OpenAI’s CEO, was fired on Friday, and in less than a week he returned to his position.

From Friday until earlier today, however, a lot happened: Microsoft offered Altman a CEO position at a new AI lab inside the company, then over 700 OpenAI employees threatened to leave to company if Altman wouldn’t come back as CEO, then OpenAI regretted the action, even though it named a new interim CEO, and so on.

The whole situation was more silly than bizarre, and it kept the tech world on edge. Things weren’t this interesting ever since Musk turned Twitter into X. Why? Because the reason for Altman’s firing was also uncertain. OpenAI’s board said that the CEO’s behavior caused them to lose their trust in his abilities to lead, but the overall support of over 700 OpenAI employees says differently.

And today, Microsoft shared a lengthy note to all of its employees, reassuring the partnership once again, and trusting Sam Altman as the CEO of the company. It’s worth mentioning that Microsoft is one of OpenAI’s biggest investors, so the company backing up Altman, despite the board firing him, means that the Redmond-based tech giant has good reasons to do so.
