What Sam Altman OpenAI Turmoil Means for AI-First Local Marketing

Brain King | December 19, 2023

A quiet Friday afternoon in the AI industry was recently rocked by the abrupt departure of Sam Altman, the CEO at OpenAI. Altman’s exit became the talk of the town, not just among tech enthusiasts but also in mainstream conversations.

Following this drama, the event transcended the AI community’s boundaries, becoming a hot topic even among those distantly related to the tech world. In fact, my senior neighbor, typically uninvolved in the intricacies of artificial intelligence, approached me with a curious inquiry about who Sam Altman is and the implications of his board ousting him.

Let me be clear: My neighbor is a retired author and has never expressed an interest in AI. This unexpected shake-up sent uncertainty across the industry, spotlighting the vulnerabilities inherent in depending solely on a single entity like OpenAI.

In light of such industry tumult, the value of having diverse partnerships and a multifaceted approach becomes unmistakably clear. And you might have guessed it… this is where BrandMuscle steps into the picture.
