Elon Musk’s new artificial intelligence company, xAI, has an ambitious goal: to comprehend the intricacies of the universe. In a lengthy Twitter Spaces audio chat, Musk delved into various topics while shedding light on his vision for xAI and its potential collaborations.
Seeking to unravel the mysteries of the universe, Musk humorously summarized xAI’s mission statement as “what the hell is really going on?” The formation of xAI comes after Musk criticized other companies like OpenAI and Google for their approach to AI development, accusing them of disregarding the risks to humans.
During the Twitter Spaces session, Musk revealed that xAI would work closely with his other ventures, Twitter and Tesla. Public tweets will be used to train xAI’s AI models, and there is a possibility of collaboration with Tesla on AI software. Musk emphasized the mutual benefits such a partnership could bring, including the potential acceleration of Tesla’s self-driving capabilities.
Musk also raised concerns about the use of Twitter data by AI companies, asserting that they train their models in what he considers an illegal manner. As an advocate for AI regulations, he has actively sought meetings with White House officials and has recently discussed the importance of AI regulation with top government officials in China.
With xAI’s aim to explore the depths of the universe and its collaboration with Twitter and Tesla, Elon Musk continues to push the boundaries of AI while emphasizing the need for responsible development and regulation.
