Sam and I are shocked and saddened by what the board did today.

First of all, thank you to everyone we have worked with at OpenAI. Thank you to our customers, our investors and everyone who has been reaching out to us.

We are still trying to find out what exactly happened.

Things we know:

– Last night, Sam got a text from Alya asking to talk on Friday at noon. Sam attended the Google Meet and the entire board was there except Greg, that is, me. Ilya tells Sam that he is being fired from his job and that the news will be coming out soon.

– At 12:19 pm, I received a text from Ilya asking to call immediately. At 12:23 pm Ilya sent the Google Meet link. I was told that I was being removed from the board, but not from the company. Sam was fired. Around the same time, OpenAI published a blog post.

– As far as we know, the management team was informed about this immediately. Meera also came to know about this the night before.

Please don’t waste time worrying. We will be fine. Big things are coming soon.

The company that created ChatGPT is OpenAI…

There are 7 co-founders of this company-

Sam Altman: Entrepreneur. Before OpenAI, he was the President of Y-Combinator, a group that funded start-ups. Then became the CEO of OpenAI.

Ilya Setskever: Chief Scientist of OpenAI.

Greg Brockman: President of OpenAI.

Wojciech Zoremba: Head of the Codex and LanguageWatch research teams at OpenAI.

Elon Musk: Has invested in OpenAI.

John Shulman: AI Research Scientist.

Andrej Karpathy: Research Scientist.

Among all these people, the role of Sam Altman is the most important, because he is the one who designed this research. That is, it was he who decided how this research related to AI would be done and what would be produced.

ChatGPT was publicly unveiled in 2022.
OpenAI unveiled ChatGPT to the world in November 2022. This AI tool has gained popularity rapidly. From writing music and poetry to writing essays, ChatGPT can do a lot of things. This is a conversational AI. An artificial intelligence that answers you like a human.

Big tech companies like Microsoft have invested more than $30 billion in OpenAI. The company has also integrated ChatGPT in its search engine ‘Bing’.

Critics say that the increasing use of AI will create problems for people. Jobs will end, people’s dependence on it will increase and perhaps one day a day will come when humans will completely leave the job of thinking to AI.

Sam Altman does not deny this danger. However, he says that it is difficult to imagine a world that does not need the human brain.
