First, the voice chat feature was available only for those who were the paid subscribers of ChatGPT Plus and Enterprise.
The brief and stormy absence of Sam Altman, the CEO of OpenAI is now history. This follows intensive deliberations on the fate of the company that focuses on artificial intelligence. Another new development introduced by OpenAI is that of the initial board, with Bret Taylor serving as the chair, among others such as Larry Summers and Adam D’Angelo.
Previously, the original board has only provided short reasons for firing Altman, mainly regarding his integrity to keep the public mission in mind when creating AI for the benefit of mankind. This reshuffle is expected to favor Altman and Microsoft whose capital has gone into the development of AI by OpenAI and integration of its technologies across the globe.
Altman’s return is expected to signal the consolidation of power, making openAI bold and profit-oriented, but also less risk-taking. Four days into his resignation, however, Altman resumed his role as CEO, thereby causing quite a commotion at Microsoft. The resignation of president Greg protest against this revolt. During this transitional time, Emmett Shear, the ex-Twitch boss functioned as interim CEO.
At its extreme point the crisis involved OpenAI’s staff threatening to resign and join Microsoft unless the Board left and the reinstatement of Altman. OpenAI’s technology relies heavily on computational power that is provided by Microsoft as well as other factors that motivated this movement.
