Software giant Microsoft has announced the appointment of Sam Altman, former CEO and founder of OpenAI, to a position to lead the team working on artificial intelligence technology research.
Microsoft began to include new employees to the work team for developing artificial intelligence technology research. Sam Altman, co-founder of OpenAI, was appointed to lead the Microsoft team, and Greg Brockman also joined the work team.
Sam Altman was fired from OpenAI last Friday, following a decision by the company’s board of directors indicating his inability to lead OpenAI.
Today, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella announced the appointment of Sam Altman and Greg Brockman to lead the artificial intelligence research team.
On the other hand, “Sam Altman” indicated in his statements that the company is looking forward to providing Sam Altman and Greg Brockman with the necessary resources to work on advanced artificial intelligence research.
It is noteworthy that Microsoft’s announcement of the new work team comes a week after the company announced the chip dedicated to artificial intelligence developed by the company.
