Sam Altman Asserts Control of OpenAI as He Rejoins Its Board

Sam Altman Asserts Control of OpenAI as He Rejoins Its Board

The conclusion of an investigation into the chaotic firing of Sam Altman from OpenAI more than three months ago represented a resounding victory for the high-profile chief executive as he moves to reassert control of the artificial intelligence company he helped to create. OpenAI, in a news conference on Friday, said that Mr. Altman, who returned to OpenAI just five days after he was pushed out in November, did not do anything that justified his removal and would regain the one role at the company that still eluded him: a seat on the company’s board of directors. Mr. Altman’s ouster stunned Silicon Valley and imperiled the future of one of the tech industry’s most influential start-ups.

In a recent statement, OpenAI addressed the lawsuit filed by The New York Times, clarifying its stance on AI technology’s interaction with news content.

OpenAI also tackled the issue of training AI models using publicly available internet materials, asserting that this practice falls under fair use. Despite this legal standing, OpenAI has led the AI industry in providing an opt-out process for publishers, demonstrating its commitment to responsible practices. A significant concern raised in the lawsuit was the regurgitation of content by AI models, a rare occurrence where models inadvertently memorize and reproduce specific content. OpenAI acknowledged this issue and stated that they are actively working to minimize it. The company has implemented measures to limit memorization and prevent regurgitation in model outputs, emphasizing the importance of responsible use of their …

Everton players and fans will be fired up by points penalty, asserts Sean Dyche | Everton

Sean Dyche is confident Everton’s season will not be derailed by their 10-point penalty for breaching Premier League financial rules but has warned his players that they cannot rely on the club’s appeal to rescue them from another relegation battle. The Everton manager said he was shocked and aggrieved by an independent commission’s decision to impose the biggest sporting sanction in Premier League history for a £19.5m overspend in 2021-22. Dyche was ill while on holiday in Dubai when informed of the punishment by Everton’s director of football, Kevin Thelwell. He described the deduction as both disproportionate and unjust. Dyche addressed the first-team squad at Everton’s Finch Farm training ground on Friday morning, once they had all returned from international duty. Players reacted to last Friday’s news by sharing defiant messages on their WhatsApp group. After a run of six wins in nine games in all competitions, that had lifted Everton to 14th in the table prior to being plunged back to 19th, their resolve to maintain momentum and haul the club out of danger …
