- Microsoft’s collaboration with OpenAI, led by Satya Nadella and Sam Altman respectively, is under antitrust investigation in the US and UK, potentially due to their joint efforts in the AI sector.
- OpenAI witnessed sudden leadership changes with Sam Altman’s unexpected removal and subsequent return. A new initial board granted Microsoft a non-voting observer position, allowing access to confidential information but no voting rights in key decisions.
- Reports suggested Microsoft held a 49% stake in OpenAI’s for-profit subsidiary. However, a Microsoft spokesperson refuted this, stating the details were confidential and clarified that Microsoft does not “own any portion” of OpenAI but is entitled to profits.
