The future of OpenAI hangs in the balance as a significant number of employees threaten to resign if the board does not step down and reinstate Sam Altman as CEO. Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella expressed openness to Altman’s return to OpenAI, as long as there are changes to the board structure to prevent surprises like Altman’s sudden ouster. Nadella emphasized that Microsoft will take measures to ensure transparency and avoid any future surprises. As of Tuesday morning, 95% of OpenAI employees had signed a petition indicating their intention to join a newly announced Microsoft subsidiary led by Altman and Greg Brockman. Nadella announced on Sunday that Altman, Brockman, and other OpenAI members would be forming a new advanced AI research team at Microsoft. However, it became evident that the announcement was more about securing the relationship with Altman and maintaining the partnership with OpenAI, rather than a definitive plan. Bloomberg News reported that negotiations between Altman and OpenAI have been reopened. Nadella reiterated Microsoft’s desire to partner with OpenAI, regardless of Altman’s position, to reassure Wall Street and ensure a favorable outcome. Microsoft CTO Kevin Scott assured OpenAI employees that they would have a role at Microsoft matching their compensation and furthering their collective mission.
