Sam Altman is no longer CEO of OpenAI. Mira Murati, the company’s chief technology officer, has taken over as interim CEO. Altman’s departure came after the board concluded that he was not consistently candid in his communication with them. OpenAI will begin searching for a new permanent CEO. This leadership transition comes as ChatGPT, OpenAI’s popular AI tool, has 100 million active users and experienced technical issues and a surge in demand. The company remains committed to its mission of ensuring that artificial general intelligence benefits all humanity.
