Elon Musk is back in the AI game with the launch of his new company, xAI. The billionaire entrepreneur, who was once part of OpenAI, is now setting his sights on “understanding the true nature of the universe.”
The company has assembled a dream team of AI experts to help him develop AI that can help us better understand our place in the cosmos.
For months, Elon Musk has been secretly gathering a team of AI experts, and his recent acquisition of thousands of GPU processors has only proved that he is serious about launching an AI company. The firm called xAI, was formed in Nevada in March 2023.
Elon Musk’s new AI startup, xAI, has ambitious goals. He wishes to develop a text-generation AI that is more “truthful” than current models. This research, nicknamed “TruthGPT,” might have a significant influence on how we consume and distribute information. This is a difficult task, but Musk is certain that his crew can do it.
xAI has appointed Dan Hendrycks, director of the Center for AI Safety, as an advisor. This is a significant move, as Hendrycks is a respected expert in the field of AI safety. His appointment suggests that xAI is serious about developing AI technology responsibly.
Elon Musk’s departure from the board of directors of OpenAI in 2018 strained ties between the billionaire and his previous organization. Musk was unhappy with the company’s shift from open-source research to mostly commercial initiatives.
xAI will be hosting a Twitter Spaces event on Friday to discuss its goals and objectives. The xAI launch shows that Musk isn’t willing to sit on the sidelines and let others dominate the AI market.
Elon Musk is working on a new AI project known as “TruthGPT,” which he believes will be more accurate and less biased than ChatGPT. Musk has claimed that ChatGPT was “programmed by left-wing experts,” and that this bias has caused the chatbot to “lie.”
