The announcement comes from the CEO of Microsoft himself, Satya Nadella. “We remain committed to our partnership with OpenAI and have confidence in our product roadmap, in our ability to continue to innovate with everything we announced at Microsoft Ignite, and in continuing to support our customers and partners. We look forward to know Emmett Shear (new CEO of OpenAi, ed) and the new OAI leadership team and to work with them. And we are extremely excited to share the news that Sam Altman and Greg Brockman, along with colleagues, will join Microsoft to lead a new advanced artificial intelligence research team.”
