Elon Musk’s New Artificial Intelligence Called XAI Launches Tomorrow

Elon Musk said his artificial intelligence startup, XAI, will launch tomorrow for a select user group. The Tesla and SpaceX CEO announced XAI in July and said that the model’s goal is to “understand the true nature of the universe.” Musk also owns X, formerly Twitter. XAI’s website said the startup is separate from X, but “will work closely with X (Twitter), Tesla, and other companies.”

“Tomorrow, XAI, will release its first AI to a select group,” Musk posted on X today. “In some important respects, it is the best that currently exists.”

Since ChatGPT went mainstream earlier this year and garnered mass popularity, companies have been sprinting to incorporate AI into its products and catch up in a blossoming market. Industry experts have said the new systems could have dangerous unintended consequences without proper regulation, but the concerns have largely been overshadowed by rabid interest in the technology.

XAI is being advised by Dan Hendrycks, the director for the Center of AI Safety, according to the startup’s website.

It’s worth noting that Musk co-founded OpenAI, the startup behind ChatGPT, in 2015, but left the company’s board in 2018. It’s likely Musk plans for XAI to compete against OpenAI, Google, and Anthropic. Earlier this year, Musk reportedly secured thousands of high-powered Nvidia GPU processors, according to CNBC. These chips are often used to build large language models.

The team behind XAI includes contributors previously associated with DeepMind, OpenAI, Google Research, Microsoft Research, Tesla, and the University of Toronto.
