Hundreds of OpenAI employees, including co-founder and board member Ilya Sutskever, have signed a letter demanding that either OpenAI's remaining board members resign or those OpenAI employees will join Sam Altman's new venture at Microsoft , reports said. Five hundred and five OpenAI employees have signed the letter, Kara Swisher reported, representing the overwhelming majority of OpenAI's headcount. Multiple OpenAI employees voiced their support on social media as well. Altman was forced out Friday by OpenAI's board, including Sutskever, which cited unspecified issues with his communications. Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella on Sunday announced that Altman and fellow OpenAI co-founder Greg Brockman would join the company in a new, largely independent venture.

Over the course of the holiday break last year, Tian built what would become the main tool for his startup, GPTZero. They became some of the earliest adopters of GPTZero, Tian explained. "You have to imagine, this is before TurnItIn even knew what AI detection was, and OpenAI wasn't considering this at all either," Tian said. As customer and media interest grew in GPTZero, Tian realized he had built something that could be a full-fledged startup. Tian and the GPTZero team acknowledge that errors can happen with GPTZero as well, but that focusing on "human" detection can be one way around it.
