Sam Altman has returned to OpenAI as CEO, but the details of exactly why the board pushed him out in the first place are still a mystery. They said that Altman wasn't candid, and often got his way. From that description, it sounds like the board really couldn't pinpoint exactly what was wrong, other than some sort of ~bad vibes~. (And the board couldn't even name them!) But ultimately, they did have a point: In the end, Altman got his way.

After a weekend of rumor and speculation, Emmett Shear — former co-founder and CEO of Twitch — confirmed he will take the top job at probably the most high-profile AI company in the world. watch nowTwitch was acquired by Amazon for $1 billion in 2014 and Shear stepped down as CEO of Twitch last year. Before Shear started Twitch, he was the co-founder of Kiko Calendar, a calendar app he worked on through the 2005 Y Combinator program.

Earlier this month, the U.K. held a pivotal summit on AI safety, attended by major foundational AI companies, to discuss some of the most pressing issues in the field.

AdvertisementIf Sam Altman can't be convinced to return to OpenAI, Microsoft is in trouble. All of which means that the biggest loser if Altman can't be convinced to return isn't Altman.
