“We’re extremely excited to share the news that Sam Altman and Greg Brockman, together with colleagues, will be joining Microsoft to lead a new advanced AI research team,” Nadella said in the post from his official social media platform.
Altman’s departure from OpenAI, the renowned AI research lab, and his entrance into the realm of Microsoft have ignited speculation about the potential impacts on both organizations and the broader tech landscape.

Microsoft chief further stated that, “I’m super excited to have you join as CEO of this new group, Sam, setting a new pace for innovation. We’ve learned a lot over the years about how to give founders and innovators space to build independent identities and cultures within Microsoft, including GitHub, Mojang Studios, and LinkedIn, and I’m looking forward to having you do the same,”
Several OpenAI employees, including co-founder Brockman, resigned from the AI research lab in protest over the weekend. Nadella said that Altman and Brockman will be accompanied by “colleagues,” implying that Microsoft is also hiring OpenAI employees who resigned over the weekend.
Over the weekend, the tech industry was taken aback as OpenAI’s board, led by co-founder and chief scientist Ilya Sutskever, announced the removal of Altman in what is being termed an alleged coup. Altman, who co-founded the company in 2015, was ousted in a surprising move that caught even key OpenAI investor Microsoft off guard.
