Sam Altman, the CEO of OpenAI, and Oliver Mulherin, his boyfriend, recently celebrated their marriage with a lovely ceremony by the sea. Just twelve people attended the little wedding, which took place among palm palms. Details were kept private until photos of the event appeared on social media.

Their first public appearance together
One of Altman and Mulherin’s first public appearances together was at a White House event honoring Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi last year.

A Year of Ups and Downs for Sam Altman
For OpenAI CEO Altman, 2023 was a busy year. He was abruptly reinstated shortly after being removed from his position as CEO of OpenAI in November. During an interview with Time magazine, Altman reflected on this experience and called it a “rollercoaster.”
In spite of the ups and downs, Altman was ultimately recognized as Time’s CEO of the Year, acknowledging his outstanding leadership and direction in turning OpenAI into one of the most promising firms globally. In 2015, Altman and a number of other tech billionaires, including Elon Musk, co-founded OpenAI, a nonprofit organization devoted to creating artificial intelligence that is both safe and useful.
