Sam Altman, the recently ousted CEO of OpenAI, is apparently not wasting any time in moving on to his next venture. According to a report by the Information, Altman has been in talks with investors about launching a new project. Although details about the venture remain scarce, it is said to still be in development.
The report also mentioned that former OpenAI president Greg Brockman is expected to join Altman in his new endeavor. However, no official statement has been made by either Altman or Brockman regarding their plans.
This news comes after Altman's unexpected dismissal from OpenAI, a company widely recognized for its AI technology, including the popular product ChatGPT. Altman's departure was followed by the resignation of co-founder Greg Brockman.
Earlier this year, Altman's name made headlines once again when it was revealed that he had been discussing the possibility of creating a new AI hardware device with Jony Ive, Apple's former design chief. The project reportedly involved influential figure Masayoshi Son, the CEO of SoftBank.
While Altman could not be reached for comment, and Brockman remained silent in response to Reuters' request for comment, it is clear that both individuals are actively pursuing new ventures following their departure from OpenAI.
The reason behind Altman's ouster from OpenAI was cited as a "breakdown of communications" rather than any wrongdoing, as stated in an internal company memo. As Altman sets his sights on a new venture, the industry is eagerly waiting to see what the former CEO has in store for the future.
