According to a person familiar with the situation, OpenAI has named Emmett Shear, former CEO and co-founder of Twitch, as its new interim CEO. This move comes after the board refused to step down and bring back previous CEO, Sam Altman. Instead, Altman and former president Greg Brockman are joining Microsoft to lead a new advanced AI research team, an announcement made by Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella. Shear’s appointment was a surprise as he is not known as a leader in the AI space. He accepted the job after consulting his family. OpenAI employees are impressive and mission-driven, and the process and communications around Altman’s removal have seriously damaged trust. Despite the controversy, OpenAI’s profile has grown rapidly and has over 100 million weekly users.
