Elon Musk has already approached experts in the field in order to build a research lab.
Elon Musk is disgruntled with what OpenAI is doing to ChatGPT, its conversational artificial intelligence. Last year, the billionaire explained on Twitter that OpenAI should have remained a non-profit corporation rather than sell its technologies to Microsoft.
Elon Musk is willing to compete against ChatGPT.
When it comes to a project that is close to his heart, the Twitter CEO has a reputation for going all out when it comes to things. Already very busy trying to get the social network out of the water, he might have taken the time to contact scientists in artificial intelligence with the intention to establish a laboratory on the subject.
This rumor is attributed to The Information site, which is often well-informed. According to the media,Elon Musk might have discussed such a project with Igor Babuschkin, an artificial intelligence researcher who worked on DeepMind AI at Alphabet, the parent company of Google.
For the time being, the project is presented as being at a very early stage: there would be no "material plans" to develop goods, according to The Information. Igor Babuschkin has not denied that Elon Musk approached him, but he nevertheless stated that he had not officially joined the project.
Is there going to be a war of artificial intelligence?
Igor Babuschkin might be responsible for establishing the Elon Musk research laboratory, according to The Information. If this information proves to be correct — Elon Musk did not respond to this — it may indicate that Twitter's founder might position himself as a competitor against the OpenAIa company he founded and funded in 2015.
Elon Musk has dropped his links to OpenAI and its co-founder, Sam Altman, who is also a fan of the company's relationship with Microsoft. Elon Musk believes that ChatGPT is a "waked AI" that shapes its own reality. This is a problem that he hopes to correct by developing an alternative.
Elon Musk's emerging project is easy to see when adding it to the growing category of companies that are developing conversational AI, including OpenAI, Microsoft, and Metait. In the years to come, artificial intelligence will become more and more important on a daily basis. However, ChatGPT will have been a real shock for this sector that is trying to escape the crisis.
