Satya Nadella Confirms Altman and Brockman Joining to Microsoft Lead New AI Research Team

Following the resignation of OpenAI CEO Sam Altman, Microsoft has confirmed plans to bring Altman and Chief Scientist Greg Brockman on board to lead a new advanced AI research team. Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella announced the move amid ongoing uncertainty around OpenAI’s leadership.

In a post on X/Twitter, Nadella stated “We look forward to getting to know Emmett Shear and OAI’s new leadership team and working with them. 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. We look forward to moving quickly to provide them with the resources needed for their success.”

Satya Nadella Confirms Altman and Brockman Joining to Microsoft

The news comes after OpenAI’s board abruptly removed Altman as CEO due to concerns over his transparency, stating they had lost confidence in his leadership.

Earlier reports indicated Altman planned to launch a new AI startup, with Brockman potentially joining. But it now appears the two AI luminaries will steer their efforts into a research role within Microsoft.

Nadella’s timely announcement aims to provide reassurance around Microsoft’s ongoing partnership and product roadmap with OpenAI following the leadership shakeup.

By bringing aboard Altman and Brockman to head advanced AI research, Microsoft retains their expertise while supporting OpenAI’s new CEO, also reaffirms Microsoft’s position as a leading force in artificial intelligence development.
