Elon Musk starts new artificial intelligence organization called X.AI
Musk has reportedly started this new AI company to combat OpenAI, one of the leading artificial intelligence firms
Twitter owner and Tesla CEO Elon Musk recently announced the creation of a new artificial intelligence company called X.AI, according to a Nevada business filing from March.
The filing occurred March 9 and lists Musk as the company's sole director, and Jared Birchall, his family office manager, as its secretary.
Musk has been very openly skeptical of AI, even to the point that he wrote an open letter to AI developers, asking them to pause it temporarily.
"Recent months have seen AI labs locked in an out-of-control race to develop and deploy ever more powerful digital minds that no one – not even their creators – can understand, predict, or reliably control," a group of tech experts including Musk said in the letter.
Musk has reportedly started his new AI company to combat OpenAI, one of the leading artificial intelligence firms. He was the co-founder of OpenAI, but left in 2018 over unresolved issues.
He has reportedly sought to create a rival to OpenAI and has been recruiting artificial intelligence engineers for months, The Hill reports.
