Our Report: Here’s a step-by-step play detailing exactly what’s happened over the last week between OpenAI, their board, and Sam Altman (even we’ve struggled to keep up with all the chaos).
The firing of Sam Altman: On Friday, November 17, 2023, the OpenAI board of directors abruptly fired CEO Sam Altman, citing a lack of candor in Altman's communications as the reason for losing confidence in his leadership.
Internal Conflict at OpenAI: The firing seemed to stem from a conflict within OpenAI, with co-founder Ilya Sutskever and other board members concerned about the company's shift towards a more for-profit approach under Altman.
High-Profile Resignations: Following Altman's dismissal, OpenAI's president Greg Brockman, and three senior researchers also announced their resignation.
Investor Influence and Altman's Potential Return: On Saturday, major investors, including Microsoft, exerted pressure on the board to reconsider their decision, and negotiations began for Altman's potential return.
Appointment of a New Interim CEO: On Sunday, in a twist, OpenAI announced the appointment of Emmett Shear (former Twitch CEO) as the new interim CEO.
Altman's Return and Board Reshuffle: By Monday, the situation took another turn. Reports emerged that Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella was personally involved in the negotiations to bring Altman back. An agreement was finally reached, which not only reinstated Altman as CEO but also led to the resignation of the existing board members.

Formula One is implementing AI to address track limit breaches, starting with the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, with a technology, known as 'Computer Vision,' which uses shape analysis to determine when cars cross the track boundaries.
It specifically identifies when all four wheels of a car pass the white line at the track's edge, and it aims to reduce the burden on the FIA's remote operations center and accelerate decision-making (similar to action replay in football).
The UK Chancellor of the Exchequer announced significant investments in AI (including a £500M investment in AI supercomputing over the next 2 years) and quantum research, aimed at establishing the UK as a leading force in these fields.
Additionally, the government plans to develop an advanced quantum network by 2035, which will benefit sectors like healthcare, telecoms, and transport, with industry leaders praising these initiatives for their potential to drive scientific and technological breakthroughs.
Bill Gates—in a conversation with Trevor Noah—expressed that AI will transform jobs rather than eliminate them, significantly easing labor demands, and making a 3-day work week feasible.
He compared AI's impact to that of the PC, noting it won't be as disruptive as the Industrial Revolution but will be equally significant, changing work forever. Obviously, there’s a variety of risks associated with AI, including deep fakes, misinformation, AGI & more; but we’re hopeful that AI can transform the lives of the global workforce forever.
