Elon Musk, who has recently voiced vociferous opposition to artificial intelligence, appears to be preparing something in this area. The Wall Street Journal and The Financial Times claim that Musk is the founder of the new artificial intelligence business X.AI Corp.
The new firm is incorporated in Nevada and designates Musk as the sole director as well as Jared Birchall, the director of his family’s offices, as the secretary, according to a state file from last month that the sources have viewed.
The multi-company leader is rumored to have a specific fondness for the letter “X” and recently renamed Twitter, Inc. as X Corp.
Elon Musk Experience as an AI Expert
Elon has experience working on AI projects. Prior to departing the organization about ten years ago, he co-founded OpenAI.
However, following ChatGPT’s explosive growth in popularity, Musk pushed for its regulation and penned an open letter urging tech executives to halt ChatGPT’s development for a period of six months.
The Journal claims that the Tesla owner believed ChatGPT to be politically biased and that he is attempting to develop AI models that are “truth-seeking.” Musk once warned on the “danger of training AI to be woke.”
But as of right now, it’s unclear what Musk has in mind for X.AI Corp. and whether he wants to create a genuine ChatGPT rival.
While information is still lacking, prior stories offer hints as to how his AI initiatives are developing.
In March, he allegedly hired two former DeepMind researchers, including scientist Igor Babuschkin, who is thought to be in charge of the new endeavor.
Additionally, 10,000 GPUs were purportedly purchased by billionaire for AI research at one of Twitter’s data centers.
Additionally, according to The Times, he has already begun discussions with investors to raise money for his new business alongside Tesla and SpaceX.
