Microsoft leaves observer seat on OpenAI's board

Microsoft leaves observer seat on OpenAI's board

Months after Microsoft gained an observer seat on OpenAI’s board, the company has decided to leave the non-voting position. Microsoft expressed confidence in OpenAI's progress and direction, stating the partnership remains strong. OpenAI announced that no other observers will join the board, likely ruling out previous rumors of Apple obtaining a seat.

Despite relinquishing the observer role, Microsoft's significant $13 billion investment in OpenAI continues, owning 49% of the for-profit entity. However, this partnership has drawn antitrust scrutiny from EU regulators concerned about big tech's influence over emerging AI companies. Microsoft's recent decision appears to be a strategic move to avoid further regulatory issues.
