Report: no reason to fire Sam Altman

AI, Short Takes | 0 comments

Ars Technica

After reportedly interviewing dozens of people and reviewing over 30,000 documents, [the legal firm hired to investigate Altman’s firing] found that while the prior board acted within its purview, Altman’s termination was unwarranted. “WilmerHale found that the prior Board acted within its broad discretion to terminate Mr. Altman,” OpenAI wrote, “but also found that his conduct did not mandate removal.”

I am neutral on Sam Altman as a whole. I think that this episode is a net—negative for keeping AI development in check — especially at Open AI, as Sam Altman now essentially seems invincible.
