Illustrate a 3:2 aspect ratio image that captures the essence of the article titled: 'Stability AI CEO resigns because you’re not going to beat centralized AI with more centralized AI'. The illustration should carry a positive and light tone, rendered in a lively and cartoonish style reminiscent of 3D animation studios pre-1912. Include visual elements relating to AI like circuit patterns and machine gears. Depict a scene where a middle-aged South-Asian male in formal attire(CEO) is seen stepping out of a large, futuristic company building(erring on the abstract side), labeled 'Stability AI'. Show another two individuals, with equal prominence in the frame, who can be seen as the COO - a Caucasian woman and the CTO - a Hispanic man in their office setting. Incorporate a symbol of decentralization, such as a distributed network, causeway path splitting into multiple routes, or jigsaw pieces coming together. All the while, maintaining a harmonious and optimistic palette.

Stability AI’s CEO, Emad Mostaque, has resigned to pursue decentralized AI, citing the need for transparent and distributed governance in the industry. The company, known for its popular image generation tool Stable Diffusion, has appointed its COO and CTO as interim co-CEOs. Mostaque’s departure follows the startup’s struggle, with reports of significant talent loss and unsuccessful attempts to raise new funding at a $4 billion valuation. His previous focus on generative AI R&D over revenue growth has shifted, with the aim to achieve cash flow positivity this year. Stability AI is one of the few companies to open data, code, and training run details, positioning itself for enterprise adoption. The departure of Inflection AI’s co-founders and staff to Microsoft further highlights the remarkable week for the AI industry. Mostaque’s departure underscores the growing importance of decentralized AI and the need for more transparent governance structures in the industry.
