Aviation flights will face the dual risks of deterioration of the communication environment and transpolar radiation. For the public, especially Pigeon players and aurora enthusiasts should also pay attention to space weather information in the near future.

Recently, OpenAI stated in a letter to GPT developers that the release of the “GPT Store” will be postponed until early next year.

In the past period, OpenAI has experienced many events, including the dismissal of CEO Sam Altman, public revolts by hundreds of employees, and the departure of senior managers.

Recently, "The New Yorker" also exposed more insider information about this palace fight. To put it simply, there was a conflict between Altman and former board member Helen Toner.

The reason was that Toner co-wrote a paper criticizing OpenAI for "hyping artificial intelligence." Even though Toner explained and apologized to the board of directors, Altman was still dissatisfied with her behavior and wanted to contact other board members to kick her off the board, but Toner preempted her.

The board of directors suddenly announced the dismissal of Altman without informing its investor Microsoft, which surprised and angered Microsoft. At the same time, the board also underestimated the reaction of employees and investors. After many efforts, Altman was finally reinstated and almost all directors who opposed him resigned.
