Microsoft’s observer has reportedly joined the OpenAI board.

Remember the November upheaval at OpenAI, with Sam Altman fired and rehired as CEO? After all that, new board chair Bret Taylor said the ChatGPT company would “build a qualified, diverse Board of exceptional individuals” that included a nonvoting observer from Microsoft, which is OpenAI’s biggest financial backer.

Now Bloomberg reports that person is Microsoft vp Dee Templeton, who has been there for 25 years and leads a team responsible for managing its relationship with OpenAI.
