When Musk introduced the institution of xAI in July, the corporate went with a daring mission assertion of understanding “the true nature of the universe.” To date, the corporate has remained fairly, whereas staff which have beforehand labored at OpenAI, Microsoft, Google, and Tesla proceed engaged on the secretive undertaking.
Nonetheless, Musk seems bullish on no matter it’s that xAI is constructing. “In some necessary respects, it’s the finest that at present exists,” he wrote in a submit on X. Greg Yang, who’s main xAI, says the AI lab was growing a “principle of every thing” for neural networks.
“AI will allow everybody to grasp our mathematical universe in methods unimaginable earlier than,” Yang wrote, which sounds no much less imprecise than Musk’s claims of demystifying the true nature of the tangible universe. Nonetheless, neither Musk — nor his EV model Tesla — are strangers to AI.
Musk was on the founding board of OpenAI, whereas Tesla at present makes use of superior machine studying fashions to dictate its vehicle self-driving expertise. Curiously, not too way back, Musk additionally signed a letter that requested for a freeze on growing cutting-edge AI tech, citing dangers to humanity. That mentioned, it is unclear if xAI falls beneath that umbrella, or if Musk’s firm has different plans for its synthetic intelligence undertaking.
