    Sam Altman is a name that made the headlines last year after the release of ChatGPT. The CEO of OpenAI became a central figure in the tech world and a household name after engaging with several world leaders to discuss the future of AI. However, the CEO lost to Taylor Swift for Time‘s top accolade.

    However, Sam Altman was named Time’s CEO of the Year. In an interview on Trevor Noah’s podcast ‘What Now?‘ Sam Altman said he “was thrilled” at losing out on Time’s Person of the Year accolade to Taylor Swift. The CEO of OpenAI also added he was “pleased to be out of the spotlight for once” and is genuinely “happy” for the ‘Enchanted’ singer.

    The CEO might not have had a smooth year-end, as he was under intense scrutiny since his dramatic ousting from OpenAI last month. Sam Altman was fired which shocked the board as well, which made him briefly shift to Microsoft. However, this did not end well at OpenAI, as the employees threatened to quit unless Altman was reinstated.

    Altman also told Noah Trevor during the podcast, “I’ve had more attention this year than I would have liked to have in my entire life. Thrilled to not get that.” He said the attention he’d received over the past year had been fun in some ways but difficult for his personal life. He said he was often “recognized in public and never got to be anonymous anymore.”
