Some members of the OpenAI board had found Altman an unnervingly slippery operator. For example, earlier this fall he’d confronted one member, Helen Toner, a director at the Center for Security and Emerging Technology, at Georgetown University, for co-writing a paper that seemingly criticized OpenAI for “stoking the flames of AI hype.” Toner had defended herself (though she later apologized to the board for not anticipating how the paper might be perceived).

I have a persistent 12,500Hz ringing in my ears. Doesn't bother me (yet), but I know some older folks that have issues sleeping because of it. Hope the research is productive!
