Elon Musk has already approached experts in the field in order to run a research lab.
Elon Musk is dissatisfied with what OpenAI is doing to ChatGPT, its conversational artificial intelligence. Last week, the billionaire explained on Twitter that OpenAI should have remained a non-profit organization, rather than sold its technology to Microsoft.
Elon Musk is ready to compete with ChatGPT?
When it comes to a project that is close to his heart, the Twitter CEO has a reputation for going all over the place. Already busy trying to get the social network out of the water, he would have taken the time to approach scientists in artificial intelligence with the intention to build a lab on the topic.
The origin of this speculation lies in the fact that Elon Musk would 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 an early stage: there would be no "material plans" to develop goods, according to The Information. Igor Babuschkin has not denied being approached by Elon Musk, 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 the man responsible for establishing the Elon Musk research laboratory, according to The Information. If this information proves true, he may be positioned as a competitor against the OpenAIa organization he founded and funded in 2015. He was the company's president until 2018, before resigning.
Elon Musk has dropped his links with OpenAI and its co-founder, Sam Altman, who is also against the company's merger with Microsoft. Elon Musk believes that ChatGPT is a "awake AI" that shapes its own truth. This is a defect that he intends to rectify.
Elon Musk's innovative project is easy to see when we add it to the growing number of companies that are working on conversational AI, including OpenAI, Microsoft, and Metait. In the years to come, we can expect artificial intelligence to become more and more vital on a daily basis. However, ChatGPT will have been a real shock for this industry that is constantly striving to emerge from the crisis.
