OpenAI parts ways with cofounder and chief scientist Ilya Sutskever

  • OpenAI cofounder Ilya Sutskever is exiting the firm for reasons not disclosed yet.
  • Jakub Pachocki replaces Sutskever, taking the baton after running many of OpenAI’s most important projects, Altman says.
  • Reportedly, Sutskever played a key role in the November ouster of CEO Sam Altman.

OpenAI’s Sam Altman’ ouster subject is being revisited again after confirmation that the firm’s cofounder and chief scientist Ilya Sutskever is exiting after a decade’s tenure with the company.

OpenAI’s Ilya Sutskever steps down

In a Tuesday post on X, Sutskever announced the end of his service at OpenAI, not disclosing any reasons for leaving. Based on the announcement, what lies ahead for him is “a project that is very personally meaningful,” adding that he would share details in due time.

OpenAI CEO, Sam Altman, has since confirmed the move, adding that Jakub Pachocki would be coming in as new Chief Scientist in place of Sutskever. Pachocki is not new at the firm after running “many of our most important projects,” Altman indicates, adding, and “I am very confident he will lead us to make rapid and safe progress towards our mission of ensuring that AGI benefits everyone.”

Amid reports that Sutskever was instrumental in the failed board ouster of Altman in November, his position has been on the balance since the attempted usurp failed. Citing two people familiar with the company, Business Insider had reported in December that Sutskever had essentially been shut out of OpenAI in the aftermath of the attempt to remove Altman as CEO.
