Breaking: OpenAI has announced Sam Altman is departing the company.
Chief technology officer Mira Murati has been appointed interim CEO to lead OpenAI with a search process underway to identify a permanent successor.
Altman’s departure follows a “deliberative review process by the board”, which concluded that OpenAI’s founder was not consistently candid in his communications with the board. Which, in turn, hindered its ability to exercise its responsibilities.
In a statement released by OpenAI, the reason for Altman’s departure is the board no longer has “confidence in his ability to continue leading OpenAI.”
