Watch: Sam Altman-OpenAI: Microsoft now has 'carte blanche' to IP (
OpenAI CEO Sam Altman was pushed out of his position last Friday by the company's board of directors. Altman was hired by Microsoft (MSFT) shortly after his firing. After what has been described as a "huge coup" at OpenAI, employees are similarly threatening to leave and work for Microsoft alongside Altman.
NYU Professor of Technology, Operations, and Statistics Vasant Dhar characterizes this opportunity as giving Microsoft "carte blanche" — or a blank check — on access to OpenAI's team intellectual property through its development team behind its artificial intelligence model.
"Altman is going to go there. [OpenAI President Greg] Brockman is going to go there. I bet a bunch of employees will go there because this is an area where relationships really matter," Dhar tells Yahoo Finance. "Expect to see a fair amount of IP just sort of walk out and walk into Microsoft."
