Elon Musk – billionaire, philanthropist and philosopher: how to know the nature of the universe through AI?
ChatGPT will have a serious competitor: xAI enters the arena.
Elon Musk, founder Tesla and SpaceX, announced on his Twitter the creation of a new company xAI , which aims to “understand the true nature of the universe” with the help of artificial intelligence. This was reported on the official website of the project.
The xAI team is made up of 12 distinguished AI professionals with experience in well-known companies such as DeepMind, OpenAI, Microsoft, Tesla, and at the University of Toronto. Among them are Jimmy Ba, a student of the legendary scientist Jeffrey Hinton, Christian Szegedy, who worked on artificial intelligence at Google, and Igor Babushkin from OpenAI. Elon Musk himself is in the leading position in the team.
xAI is also partnering with Dan Hendrix, director of the Center for AI Safety. The organization calls for the responsible development of artificial intelligence, considering it a threat to humanity. In May of this year, she published open letter in which she likened smart machines to a pandemic or a nuclear war.
xAI is an independent startup but will work closely with X Corp (formerly Twitter), Tesla and other companies to achieve their mission. The site also states that xAI is recruiting experienced engineers and researchers for the project. The team promises to answer user questions during a Twitter Spaces broadcast on Friday, July 14th.
