Elon Musk publicly announced the establishment of xAI, a startup that aims at exploring “the true nature of the universe” and will also compete against OpenAI’s well-known chatbot ChatGPT.

“The goal of xAI is to understand the true nature of the universe,” the website said.

State records show that Musk’s registered business, x.AI, is situated in Nevada. The new business revealed on its website that Musk will oversee its core group of employees.

The xAI team is made up of engineers from well-known software businesses, including those from competing companies like OpenAI, which launched ChatGPT.

Musk tweeted that the xAI team intended to do live sessions using Twitter Spaces on Friday, July 14, giving users the chance to engage with the team and ask them questions about their work.

In reaction to recent releases of chatbots like GPT from OpenAI, Bard from Google, and Claude from Anthrapic, this action has been taken.

Announcing x.AI on its website

Elon Musk has already spoken out on the moral issues raised by AI and even written an open letter calling for a halt to the field’s advancement.

Musk appears to have grabbed the reins of advancing technology this time around by directing the team in the development of xAI.

Team In The Development Of xAI

Greg Yang, a former DeepMind developer and Google research scientist, is an important member of the team.

According to the records, Musk is the only director of the business, and Jared Birchall, managing director of Musk’s family office, is the secretary. The x.AI team will also receive advice from Dan Hendricks, the head of the Centre for AI Safety.

Further demonstrating the company’s dedication to advancing the discipline, xAI’s website now provides employment possibilities for anyone in the Bay Area interested in AI development.

According to reports, Musk has tightly linked the x.AI team with his other businesses, such as Twitter, Tesla, and SpaceX. The introduction of OpenAI’s chatGPT, followed by Bard and Bing, has heightened interest in generative AI.
