Altman returns to OpenAI as CEO, but faces pressing challenges next

On the evening of November 21, local time, OpenAI announced that it had reached an agreement in principle and Sam Altman will return to OpenAI as CEO.

At the same time, OpenAI co-founder and president Greg Brockman, who previously resigned, will also return. He said, "I will start programming again tonight."

Sam Altman has agreed to an internal investigation into actions that allegedly prompted the board to oust him, according to The Information.

As a condition of returning to OpenAI, neither Altman nor Brockman will regain a seat on the company's board of directors.

New board members include board chairman and former Salesforce co-CEO Bret Taylor, former Treasury Secretary Larry Summers and Quora founder Adam D'Angelo.

Now, Altman faces difficulties mainly in repairing the rifts within the company and its corporate image.

One of the most pressing challenges is determining the role of chief scientist Ilya Sutskever and her allies on the AI ​​safety team, who initially supported Altman's ouster.

At the same time, Altman needs to move quickly to eliminate OpenAI's reputational damage among customers and employees. Competitors such as Amazon, Anthropic, Cohere and Adept have spent the past few days taking advantage of the opportunity to attract customers or recruit employees.

Chairman changes, Honor will enter the capital market through IPO

Yesterday evening, the board of directors of Honor Terminal Co., Ltd. issued an announcement stating that in order to realize the company's next stage of strategic development, the company will continue to optimize its ownership structure, attract diversified capital, and promote the company's entry into the capital market through an initial listing.

According to China Business News, Wu Hui was previously the chairman of Shenzhen Water Group Co., Ltd., and sources said that the purpose of this coaching change is to promote the listing process of Honor. At the same time, affected by rumors of Honor’s “backdoor” listing, many concept stocks have recently hit their daily limit.

As an indirect shareholder of Honor, Tianyin Holdings issued an announcement to clarify on the evening of November 21, saying that it was concerned about media rumors that Honor Terminal Co., Ltd. might be listed on the backdoor of Tianyin Holdings, which was inconsistent with the facts.

Claude 2, a strong rival of ChatGPT, undergoes a large-scale upgrade, doubling the context length

While OpenAI is in turmoil, rival Anthropic has launched a massive update to its Claude 2 chatbot.

The updated Claude 2.1 has doubled the context length from the original 100,000 tokens to 200,000, allowing the robot to process approximately 150,000 words of text at a time, which is equivalent to more than 500 pages of documents, surpassing GPT-4 again.

The upgrade also reduces Claude's hallucinations by half, a problem that artificial intelligence like Claude and ChatGPT have long struggled to solve.

Additionally, Anthropic revealed that in the recent Claude 2.1 update, the chatbot’s error rate decreased by 30% when processing extremely long documents.

Anthropic says it still takes several minutes to upload and analyze such a large amount of content. However, the company expects processing times to decrease as technology advances.

Alibaba internal disclosure: Currently Jack Ma has not sold any shares and is firmly optimistic about Alibaba

According to "LatePost", in response to recent news that Jack Ma has sold a huge amount of Alibaba shares, Alibaba partner and chief talent officer Jiang Fang posted on Alibaba's intranet yesterday: "Jack Ma has not sold a single share."

Jiang Fang said that in order to invest in agricultural technology at home and abroad and obtain funds for public welfare projects, Jack Ma's office signed a holding reduction contract with a stock broker in August this year.

According to regulations, this conditional future holding reduction plan will be announced to the public in mid-November.

Since the selling price set at that time was much higher than the current stock price, as long as the stock price did not reach the set selling price, the shares would not be sold. Therefore, in fact, not one share of the stock held by Jack Ma was sold.

Jiang Fang also conveyed to Alibaba employees through the intranet that Jack Ma was firmly optimistic about Alibaba, "Alibaba's stock is currently much lower than Alibaba's actual value, and he will not sell it."

Regarding the recent rumors that Alibaba will lay off 25,000 people, Jiang Fang said, "We have called the police to hold the rumor mongers accountable. We hope to see the rumor mongers take responsibility as soon as possible."
