OpenAI board fires Sam Altman and does not relent. The company’s board replaced him with Mira Murati and then replaced her with Emmett Shear. They claimed that Altman lost the trust of the board, but didn’t cite any specific incidents as the cause for his removal. However, they did mention that Altman’s lack of transparency and behavior interfered with the board’s ability to supervise the company effectively. The sudden decision to remove Altman was shocking to industry allies and OpenAI employees who supported him. The lack of details about the reasons behind his ouster emboldened his supporters. Some of them argued that the nonprofit board could no longer support the business that OpenAI had become. OpenAI, Shear, and Altman did not immediately respond to requests for comment. It is unclear what will happen next.
