Who is new OpenAI CEO Emmett Shear? All you need to know about the man replacing Sam Altman
Its been just a few days since Sam Altman, the former CEO of OpenAI, was ousted in a shock move — and his replacement has already been named. After a weekend of rumor and speculation, Emmett Shear — former co-founder and CEO of Twitch — confirmed he will take the top job at probably the most high-profile AI company in the world. It comes after Altman, who led OpenAI through its development of the wildly popular generative artificial intelligence chatbot ChatGPT, left after facing pressure from the board to step down. It found itself locked in a tense battle with rival YouTube for talent, with the latter attracting several high-profile personalities from Twitch with lucrative exclusive broadcasting deals. "I had recently resigned from my role as CEO of Twitch due to the birth of my now 9 month old son," Shear said in the post early Monday.
