Bill Gates runs Microsoft without having a position in the company 13:40

Microsoft’s former chairman Bill Gates, who left the board of directors in 2021, continues to have a significant impact on the company’s strategic initiatives, especially artificial intelligence, although he does not have an official position. In this respect reports Business Insider quotes sources.

According to journalists, Gates maintains an active role in the corporate life of the company by advising on strategic issues, participating in product analysis, in the process of hiring key executives and maintaining important partnerships, including with OpenAI CEO Sam Altman.

Last year, Microsoft announced the introduction of artificial intelligence technology to its own search engine, Bing, which was later renamed Copilot. According to sources, Bill Gates played a key role in the development and implementation of this solution.

Microsoft’s current chairman, Satya Nadella, and the company’s top management highly value Bill Gates’ opinion and take it into account when making major changes to the company. Since the beginning of the partnership with OpenAI, Bill Gates has regularly received presentations from Sam Altman about key achievements and challenges.

It is stated that Bill Gates maintains close ties with Sam Altman, who regularly visits his home these days. Insiders say Bill Gates’ influence on Microsoft extends far beyond his relationship with OpenAI. Bill Gates has said in the past that he personally spends about 10% of his time in Redmond advising Microsoft on product strategy.
