Elon Musk Launches New AI Company with Ambitions to Unravel the Mysteries of the Universe

Entrepreneur Elon Musk has unveiled a fresh venture called “xAI” aimed at unraveling the mysteries surrounding the fundamental nature of the universe.

In an announcement on July 12, xAI revealed its intention to collaborate closely with Musk’s other ventures, including Twitter and Tesla, in order to advance their mission. The company is actively seeking skilled engineers and researchers in the San Francisco Bay Area to join its technical team. Notably, xAI has enlisted Dan Hendrycks, the director of the Center for AI Safety, as an advisor.

The developers behind xAI possess extensive experience, having previously worked at prominent organizations such as DeepMind, OpenAI, Google Research, Microsoft Research, Tesla, and the University of Toronto. Together, they have made significant contributions to the field, including the development of widely adopted methodologies like the Adam optimizer, Batch Normalization, Layer Normalization, and the discovery of adversarial examples.

The xAI team has also played a pivotal role in pioneering breakthroughs such as AlphaStar, AlphaCode, Inception, Minerva, GPT-3.5, and GPT-4. To engage with the community, xAI has scheduled a Twitter Space chat on July 14.

Earlier reports from CryptoGrafos on April 16 revealed that Musk is working on a ChatGPT competitor called “TruthGPT,” which is a large language model specifically trained to explore the “mysteries of the universe.” Musk has expressed concerns about perceived left-wing bias in the AI industry, alleging that existing chatbots, like ChatGPT, are programmed by left-wing experts and can propagate falsehoods.

Furthermore, on July 6, Musk called for increased regulatory oversight of AI, as he believes that the technology may surpass human capabilities in the future. He also emphasized the profound impact that AI-powered devices, such as autonomous cars and robots, will have on society.
