Associated Press – Microsoft has hired two leading executives from the company that created ChatGPT after one of them was abruptly fired by OpenAI, the startup whose chatbot kicked off the era of generative artificial intelligence.
The developments followed a weekend of drama that shocked the AI world and fueled speculation about how the changes would shake out at OpenAI.
The company named a new chief executive Friday and then replaced her on Sunday.
The newest CEO vowed to investigate the firing of Sam Altman, one of the top experts in AI development.
OpenAI co-founder and former President Greg Brockman quit in protest after Altman was fired.
The two will lead Microsoft’s new advanced AI research team.
