new York TimesAccording to reports, after 48 hours of continuous negotiations, the board of directors of generative artificial intelligence company OpenAI has maintained its original proposal of dismissal. Co-founder Sam Altman has confirmed that there are no expectations of a return to the company. Emmett Shear, CEO of game live broadcast platform Twitch, will serve as interim CEO.
The board of directors said in an internal memo on the evening of the 19th that Hill “has the extensive technology, expertise and connections to lead OpenAI forward” and that senior management will stick to the original decision. “This is the only way to promote and protect the company’s vision.” All four senior officials signed the memorandum.
Among other things, the memo states: “In short, Altman’s conduct and lack of transparency in his interactions with the board undermined the board’s ability to effectively oversee the company.”
The memo does not describe the specific incident, saying only that Altman “has lost the confidence of the company’s directors” and “it is important that the CEO remains honest and transparent with the board.”
Neither OpenAI nor Ataman immediately responded.
