Apple’s Phil Schiller may join OpenAI’s board – Computerworld


Think back and you’ll remember that Microsoft, which has invested $13 billion in OpenAI, gained its own observer’s seat after the November 2023 boardroom battle at OpenAI during which co-founder Sam Altman was fired and then rehired as CEO. 

The truth is neither Apple nor Microsoft will want to countenance poor governance or flawed results as they make the tech available to the world’s population of Windows, Mac, Surface, iPad, and iPhone users. 


Holding positions, even nonvoting observer positions, on the OpenAI board may help them protect against that, and those roles may expand should Altman’s board have a second meltdown, or in the event the company becomes an acquisition target for either, both, or another big firm.
