The partnership could bring together Cardano’s blockchain expertise and Altman’s extensive experience in AI, potentially leading to innovative developments in decentralized AI models.
OpenAI’s Leadership Crisis
The tech industry was recently shaken by Altman’s unexpected departure from OpenAI, an event that stirred considerable turmoil within the company.
