After Sam Altman's return, OpenAI's board of directors replaced entirely except...

Sam Altman’s stunning exit and equally dramatic return as OpenAI’s CEO on late Tuesday was followed by a complete change in the board of directors.

Amid the tensions in the AI community, triggered by Altman’s removal, many anticipated that the board, which sacked him, would be fired if he made a comeback.

The backing by top investors like Microsoft and others as well as a rebellion by over 700 employees against the people helming the firm, ensured Altman’s quick and smooth reinstatement and cemented his position.

While the entire board was overhauled, Adam D'Angelo was retained in the new era of Altman's leadership.

Adam D'Angelo serves as the CEO of the question-and-answer platform Quora.

Bret Taylor, former co-CEO of Salesforce, and Larry Summers, a seasoned economist and former US Treasury Secretary, as well as president of Harvard University, will join him.

Summers, known as a prominent figure in Washington, has aired views on both the risks and potential benefits of ChatGPT for the "cognitive classes."

"ChatGPT is gonna replace what doctors do, hearing symptoms and making diagnoses, before it changes what nurses do," Summers told Bloomberg News earlier this year.

However, both Altman nor OpenAI co-founder Greg Brockman, who resigned as company president after Altman's removal, will return to the board.

The OpenAI board could soon have as many as six more members, the Wall Street Journal reported.

"I love openai, and everything i've done over the past few days has been in service of keeping this team and its mission together," Altman wrote in a social media post late Tuesday on X, formerly Twitter.
