In Conversation with Ravi Belani, Adjunct Lecturer, Management Science & Engineering, Stanford University

Sam Altman is the co-founder and CEO of OpenAI, the AI research and deployment company behind ChatGPT and DALL·E. Altman was president of the early-stage startup accelerator Y Combinator from 2014 to 2019. In 2015, he co-founded OpenAI as a nonprofit research lab with the mission to build general-purpose artificial intelligence that benefits all humanity.

Altman was named one of TIME’s 100 most influential people in the world and CEO of the Year in 2023, Forbes’ Top Investor Under 30 in 2015, and one of Businessweek’s Best Young Entrepreneurs and Technology in 2008.
