OpenAI's board of directors is reportedly in discussions with former CEO Sam Altman about bringing him back to the company just days after his abrupt dismissal sent shockwaves through the tech community.

Multiple sources have revealed that Altman, while "ambivalent" about returning, is open to discussion, but subject to significant changes in the organization's management.

The potential return of Altman comes amidst an ongoing crisis at OpenAI, marked by the sudden departure of key figures, including Greg Brockman, the company's president and former board chairman. The board had initially agreed in principle to resign, allowing Altman and Brockman to return; however, recent developments suggest wavering commitment, missing a critical deadline that could lead to further resignations, particularly if Altman opts to start a new venture.

Altman's rapid negotiations with OpenAI indicate that without his leadership, the company is in free fall. His dismissal was followed by a flood of layoffs, including of senior researchers, as well as talks between Altman and Brockman about starting a new company.

OpenAI, one of the leading players in the artificial intelligence industry, is facing uncertainty about its future, which has increased since Altman's firing, which occurred without prior notice to investors.
