A revolt erupted within OpenAI on Monday, as 490 employees demanded the resignation of the board. They also wanted the reinstatement of Sam Altman as CEO, along with the return of co-founder and former president Greg Brockman. Notably, earlier today Microsoft hired Altman and Brockman to head a new cutting-edge AI research team. Ilya Sutskever, OpenAI's chief scientist and board member, and CTO Mira Murati are among those who signed the letter calling for the board's resignation.
