πŸ—£οΈ Helen Toner Breaks Silence on Sam Altman Firing​

video preview​

Helen Toner, the former board member of OpenAI opened up about the drama revolving around Sam Altman's firing.

The details:

  • Helen voted to fire Sam Altman, not due to issues with AI safety, but because of a lack of trust.
  • She's known for challenging common beliefs in AI safety and even released a paper criticizing OpenAI
  • Toner and other board members resigned, after being surprised by the employee's loyalty to Sam Altman.

Our take:

With Toner's vague explanation, we are yet to find out the exact reason for Sam Altman's firing. We believe more significant events had to have happened for such a drastic decision. Therefore, we are looking forward to the results of the internal investigation.
