Ilya Sutskever, co-founder of OpenAI (ChatGPT) and involved in the dismissal of Sam Altman, resigns |  TECHNOLOGY

The co-founder of OpenAIIlya Sutskever, announced late Tuesday his departure from this American startup that owns the ChatGPT application that revolutionized generative artificial intelligence (AI).

“After almost a decade, I have made the decision to leave OpenAI,” Sutskever wrote on the social network X, formerly Twitter.

“The company’s journey has been nothing short of miraculous, and I am confident that OpenAI will build safe and beneficial artificial intelligence,” he added.

Sutskever, chief scientist at OpenAI, was part of the board of directors that voted to fire CEO and co-founder Sam Altman last November.

This surprise dismissal plunged the San Francisco startup into several days of turmoil.

Microsoft, OpenAI’s main investor, quickly offered to hire the ousted boss and most of the staff threatened to leave. Altman was quickly reinstated.

Sutskever left the board of directors, but remained in his position at OpenAI.

On Monday, OpenAI introduced a new version of ChatGPT, which can now maintain fluid spoken conversations with its users, a step towards increasingly personal and powerful AI assistants.
