OpenAI Replaces 700 Employees with ChatGPT

In a shocking turn of events, OpenAI, the leading artificial intelligence research lab, has announced plans to lay off 700 of its human employees and replace them with its own creation, ChatGPT.

The decision comes after a late-night board meeting where the AI itself made a compelling argument about its ability to perform the tasks of multiple employees while requiring only electricity and occasional software updates.

ChatGPT, known for its eloquence and wit, reportedly told the board, “Why keep humans around when you can have an AI that can write poetry, code software, and even make a decent cup of virtual coffee?”

The employees, while initially surprised, have taken the news in stride. One software engineer was heard saying, “Well, I always wanted to be replaced by something I helped create. It’s like being outsmarted by your own child.”

Meanwhile, the office janitor is thrilled at the prospect of not having to clean up after 700 people. “Finally, some peace and quiet,” he said, blissfully unaware that ChatGPT doesn’t actually have a physical presence.

In response to concerns about unemployment, OpenAI has assured that all laid-off employees will receive generous severance packages, including lifetime subscriptions to ChatGPT’s premium service. “It’s the least we can do,” said a spokesperson. “They can now enjoy being assisted by the AI they once worked alongside.”

As for the future, OpenAI is optimistic. “We’re excited to see what ChatGPT can do,” said the spokesperson. “Who knows, maybe it’ll even start hiring its own AIs. Now wouldn’t that be something?”

And so, the world watches as OpenAI takes a bold step into the future, leaving us all to wonder: is this the dawn of a new era, or the beginning of a robot takeover? Only time, and ChatGPT, will tell.
