Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella has announced the creation of a new advanced AI research team led by Sam Altman and Greg Brockman, the former CEO and president of OpenAI, respectively. However, billionaire Elon Musk couldn’t resist making a humorous comment in response.
Nadella expressed his excitement about Altman and Brockman joining Microsoft, stating that the company is committed to providing them with the necessary resources for success. Musk, who has been critical of Microsoft’s control over OpenAI, took the opportunity to poke fun at the situation, saying, “Now they will have to use Teams!”.
Musk’s comment was in reference to a report that Altman and Brockman were fired from OpenAI during a Google Meet, which is a competitor to Microsoft’s Teams platform. His witty reply sparked a meme fest on social media, with many joining in on the laughter.
One person tweeted, “Fired on meet, hired on teams,” while another shared a screenshot from the film “Kingdom of Heaven” to convey a message. The decision to terminate Altman’s tenure as CEO of OpenAI has garnered criticism from employees and investors.
It’s clear that Musk’s humor has struck a chord with many, as they continue to share and enjoy the memes inspired by his comment.
