Here is the full statement from Satya Nadella, the Microsoft CEO:
There had been talks over the weekend to try and re-instate Sam Altman as CEO of OpenAI, although this could not be agreed, so it looks like Microsoft has stepped in and will now form a new AI research team within the company headed by Sam Altman and Greg Brockman. This is big news for Microsoft and a very clever mover, as they have managed to turn a bad situation into a positive one.
