In 2023, OpenAI fired Sam Altman. He returned after 48 hours.
Sam Altman's departure from OpenAI is not final, as he and co-founder Greg Brockman are reportedly open to returning if the board members involved in Altman's firing step aside.
The potential mass departure of OpenAI employees, including key figures like chief scientist Ilya Sutskever, adds pressure on the board,
with just two of the remaining three members needing to change their stance for Altman and Brockman's return.
Altman's statement on X implies an ongoing dispute,
and efforts are underway to find a resolution allowing for the board's amicable departure.
Microsoft's hiring announcement is viewed as a temporary move, possibly a "holding pattern,
with the urgency linked to resolving the situation before the stock market opened on Monday.
The situation suggests ongoing developments and negotiations, leaving the final outcome uncertain.
