French Exit

Ilya Sutskever, OpenAI's chief scientist and one of its original cofounders, is finally leaving the company after moving to oust CEO Sam Altman in November.

In a blog post announcing the departure, Altman said Sutskever is "easily one of the greatest minds of our generation" and that he would be replaced as chief scientist by company research director Jakub Pachocki.

"Ilya and OpenAI are going to part ways," the CEO's statement to employees reads. "This is very sad to me."
