Hi, and welcome back to Semafor Tech.
The world of AI is moving so fast. I’m at the Amazon Web Services conference this week, surrounded by execs and entrepreneurs deep into this universe. Several have remarked that the drama at OpenAI seems like a year ago in AI time. But for employees at the company, it’s not over yet, as you’ll read below. Louise and I have some new details on how workers there view the situation and where several are thinking of going.
What’s clear from talking to dozens of OpenAI’s customers in Las Vegas is that the AI world is fragmenting into a million parts. Most people see that as a good thing. The alternative is that only a few players are able to grab control of the burgeoning industry. The turmoil at OpenAI makes the odds of it remaining the dominant player less likely.
