Elon Musk will compete with ChatGPT: OpenAI Competitor Company has been created
Details about Elon Musk's new company
The creator of SpaceX, PayPal, Neuralink and The Boring Company registered a new company last month. Namely, the date in the documentation is March 9, 2023.
The company was named X.AI. The media learned that Musk himself took over as director of the company. Jared Birchall, who runs another Musk brainchild, the investment firm Excession, became the secretary.
The most interesting thing is that the CEO and head of the board of directors of Tesla Inc. implemented such steps after repeatedly making statements that it is better to suspend experiments with artificial intelligence.
From rumors to actions
However, the talk that Musk plans to conquer the field of AI has been around for a relatively long time. For example, according to Business Insider reports, it was concluded that OpenAI will soon have a serious competitor. The reason for such rumors was the purchase of a huge number of graphics adapters. It was logically assumed that these devices are necessary to support the activities of a company specializing in artificial intelligence.
Even the largest edition of the Financial Times picked up such discussions. Musk had long planned something similar, according to British daily newspaper sources. To really compete with the biggest player OpenAI, he expectedly needed money. To obtain them, the entrepreneur turned to his investors, who invested in SpaceX and Tesla.
It is necessary to remember that the ambitious inventor himself once stood at the origins of OpenAI. He was one of the founders of the laboratory engaged in artificial intelligence research. However, after 3 years, Musk left the company. But the most striking protest against the laboratory occurred in 2023. Then the head of Tesla Inc. signed a petition in which he demanded to stop experiments with artificial intelligence. He was supported by other prominent personalities, including Steve Wozniak and no less advanced experts in the field of technology.
However, the creation of his own company to work with AI does not contradict Musk's statements. After all, he demanded only to suspend the experiments until the concept of ensuring security was developed.
