team, Nadella said. Microsoft shares were rising 1.9%. Microsoft is the largest investor in OpenAI.
(GM) shares were up 0.2% after Kyle Vogt, CEO of Cruise, the auto maker’s self-driving technology and taxi business, resigned. Vogt’s resignation follows a Cruise accident in early October that ultimately ended with the suspension of the company’s license to operate self-driving taxis in California.
