Sam Altman was considered the smartest guy in artificial intelligence. Until now he was the face of this new and thriving industry, the smile of success. A year ago, around this same time, the chatbot ChatGPT, from the OpenAI firm, rose to fame and transformed everything. Late this Friday it was announced, surprisingly, that Altman had been forced to resign as CEO of the company.
This was announced in a blog post from the company that has significant participation from Microsoft as an investor. Mira Murati, who had served as head of the technology department, assumed the position on an interim basis.
"Altman's departure follows a deliberate review of the process by the board, which concluded that he was not consistently candid in his communications with the team and management, hindering his ability to exercise his responsibilities," the company said in its statement. “The board has lost confidence in its ability to continue leading OpenAI,” stressed that note, which shows that AI faces many obstacles in its rampant expansion.
Greg Brockman, who was at the founding of this company, alongside Altman, will also leave his position as president of the board, although he will continue in his position, but with the obligation to report to the chief executive of the command office.
In just twelve months, ChatGPT has managed to attract millions of users, transforming the way people answer questions, write poetry, novels or school projects, make art or chat about anything. Since then, in addition, numerous doubts have arisen about its risks.
