Over the weekend, OpenAI experienced turmoil as investors and some employees sought to rehire former Y Combinator president Sam Altman, who had been fired on Friday. However, according to an internal memo from Ilya Sutskever, a board director and co-founder of OpenAI, Altman has decided not to return as CEO. The search for a permanent CEO is ongoing, and in the interim, Emmett Shear, co-founder of Twitch, has been appointed as the interim CEO, replacing Mira Murati, who held the position for only two days. Shear's concern over AI's existential threats and his experience leading large engineering groups at Twitch reportedly influenced the board's decision. Murati, who was advocating for Altman, may have been replaced due to her stance. OpenAI has not yet commented on the situation.
