Who is Sam Altman, the ousted OpenAI CEO?

On Friday, OpenAI co-founder Sam Altman was ousted from his job as CEO of the company, in a move that shook the growing artificial-intelligence industry.

Altman has been at the center of the AI boom thanks to OpenAI’s generative AI chatbot ChatGPT, and is known to be one of the field’s most influential leaders.

But OpenAI’s board said Friday that it had lost confidence in Altman’s leadership ability after a review found “he was not consistently candid in his communications with the board,” the company said in a blog post.
