Thanks to netizens makelines, Salmon, West window, kkkkkkkkkayd for the delivery of clues! According to Wired, 490 OpenAI employees signed a letter of public protest today, according to Wired, saying that unless OpenAI dissolves the company's board of directors and reappoints Sam Sam Altman as CEO, and former president Greg Brockman Brockmann returns, they will resign and join Microsoft. It is reported that OpenAI currently has more than 700 employees.

"your dismissal of Sam Altman and the removal of Greg Brockman's board seats have jeopardized all our work and undermined our mission and the company," the letter wrote. "your actions have made it clear that you are unable to supervise OpenAI."

Surprisingly, the letter was also signed by Ilya Sutskever, the company's chief scientist and board member, who is accused of orchestrating the board coup against Altman. noted that before the release of the letter, Sutskever posted on X: "I deeply regret participating in the actions of the board of directors. I never meant to hurt OpenAI. I love what we have created together, and I will do everything I can to bring the company together again."

OpenAI's board of directors dismissed Altman on Friday, claiming that "he was dishonest in his communication with the board and prevented the board from performing its duties." Mira Murati, chief technology officer of OpenAI, was appointed interim CEO.

OpenAI's board seemed willing to let Altman lead the company again after opposition from investors such as Microsoft, and Altman released a picture of him wearing a visitor badge at the company's headquarters on Sunday. But last night, the board told employees that Altman would not return to the company. A few hours later, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella announced that Altman and Brockman would join Microsoft to lead a new advanced artificial intelligence research department.

In addition, OpenAI's board of directors has removed Murati's interim CEO position and appointed Emmett Shear, the former CEO of video game streaming site Twitch, as interim CEO.

Some OpenAI employees discussed a course of action all night after learning that Altman would not return to OpenAI, and many were frustrated by the lack of communication in the process of Altman's dismissal.

In their letter, OpenAI employees threatened to join Altman's micro-software team. "Microsoft has assured us that this new subsidiary will provide positions for all OpenAI employees if we choose to join," they wrote.
