nov 22th, 2023

Mira Murati was elevated from OpenAI’s CTO to its interim leader after CEO Sam Altman was ousted Friday. Like all the company’s leaders she believes that artificial general intelligence is within reach.

Mira Murati was elevated to the position of Chief Technology Officer in May 2022. She played a crucial role in guiding OpenAI's approach to openly testing its tools, showcasing strategic prowess.

Murati has a degree in mechanical engineering from Dartmouth College. She had previously worked as an intern at Goldman Sachs and French aerospace group Zodiac Aerospace.

She also worked at Elon Musk-run electric car company Tesla as a senior product manager of the Model X.

In 2018, she came to OpenAI as VP of applied AI and partnerships. After being promoted to CTO in 2022, she led the work on ChatGPT, the text-to-image AI DALL-E and the code-generating system Codex, which powers GitHub’s Copilot product.

A member of OpenAI's leadership team for five years, Murati has played a critical role in OpenAI's evolution into a global AI leader. 

While appointing her interim CEO, the company had said,"She brings a unique skill set, understanding of the company's values, operations, and business, and already leads the company's research, product, and safety functions. 

Given her long tenure and close engagement with all aspects of the company, including her experience in AI governance and policy, the board believes she is uniquely qualified for the role and anticipates a seamless transition while it conducts a formal search for a permanent CEO."
