Elon Musk reportedly plans AI startup to rival ChatGPT-maker OpenAI

Elon Musk is said to be planning an artificial intelligence (AI) business to compete with ChatGPT-maker OpenAI, one of the most popular generative AI startups he co-founded in 2015.

The news comes after the Financial Times (FT) reported that Musk is assembling a team of AI academics and engineers. While Musk stepped down from the board of OpenAI in 2018, the creation of the new AI business will place him with other tech titans such as Google and Microsoft in developing next-generation AI.

According to the story, Musk is in talks with existing SpaceX and Tesla investors about investing in the new AI firm. “A lot of people are investing in it… it’s real and people are excited about it,” the FT’s source noted.

The alleged findings complement a recent report from April 12, wherein an anonymous source revealed that Musk procured nearly 10,000 graphics processing units to power Twitter’s AI initiatives.

On the other hand, Musk and over 2,600 other industry CEOs and researchers signed an open letter on March 30 advocating a temporary halt to further AI development, citing “profound risks to society and humanity.”

Yet another tech giant joining the AI race is Amazon Web Services (AWS).
