OpenAI CEO Sam Altman's Firing - and Reinstatement. Inside the Turbulent Leadership Shake-Up
  • 4 months ago
New details are emerging about the events leading up to Sam Altman's firing at OpenAI before he was brought back on board. Altman was fired in November due to concerns about his leadership style and communication issues with the board of directors. Altman was seen as pushing an aggressive approach to developing AI technology too quickly, while some board members wanted a more cautious timeline given safety concerns. Altman was accused of pitting board members and employees against each other to maintain his own power and influence within the company. Details that have emerged since Altman's initial firing suggest his leadership style involved manipulation and a lack of candor that ultimately led the board to remove him. However, he was reinstated shortly after amid backlash.
