OpenAI -= CEO, President ?

the story will make a good plot for a movie :)

a big mess, the dust did settle yet...

"Playing with fire AGI"

Microsoft has hired Sam Altman to power up its innovation in artificial intelligence after the co-founder of OpenAI was ousted as CEO in a chaotic boardroom coup on Friday. Meanwhile, the ChatGPT company will get its third CEO in three days.

(Could this be a "cheaper" way for Microsoft to get some key people without paying huge price for OpenAI? It is possible that some developers may follow the former CEO...)

“We look forward to getting to know Emmett Shear,” Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella said in a post on X, formerly known as Twitter. “And we’re extremely excited to share the news that Sam Altman and Greg Brockman, together with colleagues, will be joining Microsoft to lead a new advanced AI research team.”
With its $13 billion investment, Microsoft is OpenAI’s biggest stakeholder. Altman will be the CEO of the “new group,” Nadella said in his post. Shares of Microsoft rose about 2% in premarket trading Monday.

Microsoft market cap $2.77B * 2% = $55B

ChatGPT-maker OpenAI fires CEO Sam Altman, the face of the AI boom, for lack of candor with company - ABC News

ChatGPT-maker Open AI said Friday it has pushed out its co-founder and CEO Sam Altman after a review found he was “not consistently candid in his communications” with the board of directors.

“The board no longer has confidence in his ability to continue leading OpenAI,” the artificial intelligence company said in a statement.

OpenAI President Greg Brockman, who helped launch the artificial intelligence developer and has been key to developing ChatGPT and other core products, has resigned, according to a person with knowledge of the situation. The move came after the company's board fired CEO Sam Altman earlier Friday.

A prevailing speculation suggests that the new ChatGPT release might have harboured a severe security flaw, potentially leading to data leaks. Speculation further alleges that OpenAI might not have disclosed this issue, yet Microsoft was privy to it. This speculation is underpinned by prior incidents, notably in March, where users reportedly had access to private chats of other users.

main characters?

plot: stolen knowledge?

mythic origins?

Prometheus is best known for defying the Olympian gods by stealing fire from them and giving it to humanity in the form of technology, knowledge, and more generally, civilization.
The punishment of Prometheus.. eternal torment.
Prometheus was eventually freed by the hero Heracles.

but who personify mythic characters?
