After a tumultuous period of uncertainty, Sam Altman is set to return to OpenAI as the chief executive officer. The big question now is what changes Microsoft has implemented to enhance its control over the artificial intelligence startup.

OpenAI announced on social media platform X (formerly Twitter) that it had reached an agreement in principle for Altman's return as CEO, accompanied by the appointment of a new board of directors. Altman expressed his anticipation for rejoining the company.

This marks the conclusion of a chaotic period after Altman was fired by the previous board. This move led to the majority of OpenAI's employees threatening to resign and Microsoft, as the major backer, scrambling to minimize the fallout by offering to hire the staff.

Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella commented that the company is pleased with the changes made to the OpenAI board.

"We are excited to build upon our strong partnership and deliver the value of this next generation of AI to our customers and partners," Nadella stated.

The new initial board at OpenAI will consist of Bret Taylor, Larry Summers, and Adam D'Angelo. Notably, this means that most of the members involved in removing Altman from the board will no longer be part of it. As negotiations progress, Microsoft is expected to push for a seat on an expanded board comprising up to nine individuals, as reported by The Verge, citing reliable sources.
