Elon Musk, according to many reports, has recently spoken with a number of AI researchers about starting a new AI research facility.
Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla, is said to have reached out to a variety of AI researchers in an effort to assemble a team that will work on creating a ChatGPT competitor. According to reports, Musk intends to establish a competing research facility to Open AI, the company behind ChatGPT.
Musk also invited “Igor Babuschkin,” a researcher in artificial intelligence who had just left Alphabet’s DeepMind, to join the group.
Musk, an OpenAI co-founder and philanthropist, no longer has a stake in the business, but the billionaire appears to be very interested in chatbots with artificial intelligence. The increasing use and popularity of ChatGPT among individuals worldwide may be a factor in this urgency.
If you’re unaware, ChatGPT is a remarkable chatbot that can create poetry, essays, have conversations, and even produce error-free code in a matter of seconds.
Elon co-founded OpenAI with Silicon Valley investor Sam Altman in 2015; he stepped out from the board in 2018, but recently referred to ChatGPT as “scary good.”
Musk contacted Alphabet AI researcher Igor Babuschkin, and according to Babuschkin, the two have discussed the notion of assembling a team of AI experts to work on developing a ChatGPT competitor. Babuschkin noted that the plan is still in the early stages of development and that there hasn’t been any formal singing between the two.
