### OpenAI Co-founder Faces Setback Following CEO’s Departure

The president and co-founder of OpenAI, Greg Brockman, said he is quitting his role at the company …

The CEO of OpenAI responded to FOX Business’ Hillary Vaughn’s inquiries before a Senate event.

Greg Brockman, the president and co-founder of OpenAI, made an announcement late on Friday about his departure from the company that is renowned for creating the popular ChatGPT program on the social media platform X, previously known as Twitter. This decision came just days after the company revealed the resignation of CEO Sam Altman.

The board of directors at OpenAI issued a press release earlier in the day, announcing Altman’s departure due to his lack of engagement with the company.

In response to Altman’s resignation, the committee appointed Mira Murati as the interim CEO of the company until a permanent successor could be identified.

Upon hearing about Altman’s departure, Brockman addressed the OpenAI staff in a letter that he also shared publicly.

“Hello everyone. Since our humble beginnings in my room 8 years ago, I am immensely proud of the collective achievements we have made. Despite facing numerous challenges that could have hindered our progress, we have weathered both tough and rewarding times together, achieving significant milestones. However, in light of recent developments in the media, I have decided to step down. I genuinely wish all of you the very best. I remain committed to supporting the mission of advancing safe [Artificial General Intelligence] for the betterment of humanity as a whole.

Microsoft expanded its collaborations with OpenAI earlier this year, pledging to invest up to $10 billion in the company to facilitate independent commercialization of the advanced AI technologies resulting from their joint efforts.
