Writing on X, he called it the job a “once-in-a-lifetime opportunity”.

But in his post on the platform formerly known as Twitter, he added the way Mr Altman had been sacked was “handled very badly” and “seriously damaged our trust”.

The board dismissed Sam Altman, 38, on Friday, saying it had lost confidence in him, and named OpenAI’s chief technology officer, Mira Murati, as its interim chief executive.

Mr Altman helped launch the firm, which created the popular ChatGPT bot, in 2015, and was the face of the firm’s rise.

He is considered one of the most influential figures in the fast-growing generative artificial intelligence (AI) space, and his sacking sent shockwaves across the industry.

It sparked an outpouring of support from Silicon Valley bosses, including former Google chief executive Eric Schmidt who called Mr Altman “a hero of mine” and said that he had “changed our collective world forever”.

Meanwhile, responding to the post by Microsoft boss Mr Nadella confirming his new job, Mr Altman posted “the mission continues”. (BBC)
