X user @enriquebrgn posted a screenshot, asked an AI chatbot a question related to Altman sacking.

“So is Sam Altman back as CEO or not?” the user asked the AI chatbot.

The Chatbot responded “Well, it seems like the situation with Sam Altman and his role at OpenAl is quite the rollercoaster ride! Just yesterday, he was fired by the board for allegedly not being candid enough in his communications but now they’re in talks to bring him back as CEO”.

“From what I gather, the board is currently in discussions with Altman, and he is reportedly “ambivalent” about returning. If he does come back, he might want some changes in the governance structure,” it added.

Musk replied: “If he does return, the board will be gutted”.

“Leaving OpenAI for equity in Sam Altman’s new venture could be a profitable decision for many OpenAI employees”.

Musk replied: “We should dispense with the false idea that money is somehow relevant in an AGi future”.
