Sam Altman, the recently ousted CEO of OpenAI, has been telling investors that he is planning to launch a new venture, according to a person familiar with the matter. Former OpenAI president Greg Brockman is expected to join the effort and the project is still in development, the person said.
Altman was fired suddenly by the OpenAI board of directors on Friday. Shortly after, Brockman—who was removed as chairman of the board—resigned. Three OpenAI leaders have since quit and people close to the company expect several more exits in the coming days. Many of those employees could join a new venture with Altman and Brockman.
