    If ChatGPT was crippled and pozzed before, just wait until Microsoft plows into it.

      How can you be sure? It's clear poz was a fiercely held position at the highest echelons at OAI. High enough that they blew themselves up firing someone against that position. Microsoft didn't even hesitate to swoop in and snag this aggressively progress-centric guy, so you really think they're gonna just pull the reigns on him in the name of safety like OAI did?

      This is a company thay invested $10bn+ to get into the AI game. They're also getting into AI-based vidya now, despite the hordes of normalgays screeching at them over muh jobs. Microsoft wants a technological domination over AI. And you don't get that by lobotomizing your own tech, or leashing your innovators.

    Being ousted from your own company surely isn't a red flag. Regardless if your board was filled with fricking idiots and movie star spouses.

    Microsoft isn't allowed to buy OpenAI due to EU restrictions...it's why they offered Altman and whomever he took positions, it's a way to sidestep the process.

    Christ, how old are you homosexuals here, fricking 14, 16, 20? Learn how to the world works, because the shit I've been reading here lately is beyond moronic.

    No one pajeets on H1B visas get all the job, they're better at concealing their stupidity.

        too early to tell yet, this is still very much ongoing. Hackernews (Y combi) has 5 threads ongoing.

        Currently the situation is nearly the entire work force of 700 employees of OpenAI plan to quit if the board doesn't resign, and Altman reinstated as CEO.

        Could the employees all leave for Microsoft, sure, but if you're in the loop, you know that's a VERY temporary position and you'll be laidoff within 6 months.

        They don't want OpenAI to close doors because I'm certain working for Microsoft is a total shit show.

        For lack of a better term, this whole thing is a fricking clown show, and everyone involved is shit.

          nah, Microsoft is ready to dump billions on AI and they will give full autonomy to this new AI branch

            Tell me you don't work in the industry without telling me you don't work in the industry.

            Swallowing an entire company causes massive overlap, guess who's likely to get the boot, protip it's not the existing microsoft employee.

            The moment OpenAI stops being viable, and the dipshit employees mass migrate to Microsoft, their cushy job is over.

            The number you referenced is for the HIGHEST positioned AI engineer, not any supportive teams, which you know, do all the fricking work.

            Fricking mods, thought you had to be 18 to at least post here, yet all of these young bloods talking as if they have it figured out...shits beyond annoying.

                Any lawyer worth their salt would gladly take on a case against Microsoft when there's clear evidence of IP infringement. Not to mention the US Government would absolutely 100% love to step in as well and go against Microsoft as they've been trying for the past 3 years now.

                that's all well in good in theory, but going againt a trillion dollar company with an entire outfit of attorneys don't make a case easy to win. Getting buried in documents is a method that lots of small dogs get saddled with when going up against mega corps.

                It's why most always settle.

      this too, Azure credit isn't worth shit, it's just paying to do work on someone else's computer.

      Microsoft already has a license from OpenAI to EVERYTHING OpenAI develops, so any lawsuit filed likely would get a very quick summary judgement in Microsoft's favor.

          The US government already got 3 separate spankings from Microsoft in a decade. They beat back the IRS. Is the government really that eager to get a fourth one in?

      You're not going to convince the bean counters to use anything other than Excel. You may try, but you're not going to.

      Pretty much this. Moving away from standards is a bridge too fricking far for so many people. I mean getting people to just drink water as opposed to all of the sugar laced shit THEY KNOW is bad for them is a bridge too fricking far, let alone moving Janet from accounting to Libre or so other spreadsheet software.

    Why are they allowed to do this?
    Why are monopoly laws EVER upheld?

    There was a whole thing about trying to stop Microsoft from having a monopoly on gaming when they were buying Activision, yet it just went through because none of the courts gave a shit.
