Tech billionaire Elon Musk said his xAI project, focused on artificial intelligence, will be presented to a select group tomorrow, November 4.
XAI is an artificial intelligence company whose goal is to understand “the true nature of the universe.” The company launched in July and its 12 team members have strong experience with large technology companies like Deep Mind, OpenAI, Google, Tesla, etc.
The website shows that Musk-owned companies, including social media platform X and electric vehicle maker Tesla, will work with xAI. However, these companies remain distinct.
“In some important ways, it’s the best that’s out there right now,” Musk said on November 3.
Over the past year, several AI-focused companies have sprung up following the success of OpenAI’s ChatGPT. However, Musk has become one of the emerging industry’s most vocal critics, signing a letter calling for temporary restrictions on AI training.
Additionally, the Tesla CEO also reiterated this warning during a recent AI security summit hosted by the UK government. According to him, the government has a role to play in regulating the development of AI to ensure its safety.
AI Integration for Social Media Platform
Aside from his AI company’s new advancements, the tech billionaire is also integrating an AI-powered feature called “See Similar Post” into his social media platform X (formerly Twitter).
The new feature will allow users of the microblogging platform to see other posts similar to their search results and those they are viewing.
Meanwhile, some users of the social media site have expressed concerns that the update could turn the platform into an “echo chamber.”
Since Musk acquired the social media platform last year, he has introduced some interesting changes to the site, including the introduction of a subscription model and also its rebranding to an X.
