Hundreds of OpenAI employees threaten to follow Altman to Microsoft unless board resigns
Hundreds of OpenAI employees, including co-founder and board member Ilya Sutskever, have signed a letter demanding that either OpenAI’s remaining board members resign or those OpenAI employees will join Sam Altman’s new venture at Microsoft, according to NBCNews.
“Your actions have made it obvious that you are incapable of overseeing OpenAI,” the letter says. About 667 people have signed the letter. OpenAI has about 770 employees.
The letter says that Microsoft has “assured” those employees that they would have jobs at the new subsidiary, should they “choose to join.”
