Former OpenAI boss Sam Altman pictured at firm’s HQ amid reports of return
Sam Altman, the ex-boss of artificial intelligence firm OpenAI has posted a photo of himself at its HQ, following reports he is set to return after being sacked on Friday.
Writing on X (formerly Twitter), Sam Altman is pictured holding a guest ID pass and comments: “First and last time i ever wear one of these”.
The 38-year-old helped launch the firm which created the popular ChatGPT bot.
He was sacked on Friday with the board saying they had lost confidence in him. But reports over the weekend suggest investors and employees are pushing for Altman to be reinstated.
Tech news site The Information says Altman and Greg Brockman – another co-founder who quit on Friday as the company’s president – were invited to the firm’s San Francisco headquarters for talks on Sunday.
