Elon Musk, who has hinted for months that he wants to build an alternative to the popular ChatGPT artificial intelligence chatbot, announced the formation of what he’s calling xAI, a company with a mission to “understand the true nature of the universe.”
We are excited to announce the establishment of xAI, an organization dedicated to unraveling the true essence of the universe.
To engage with our team and inquire about our endeavors, we invite you to join us for a Twitter Spaces chat on Friday, July 14th.
xAI is led by Elon Musk, renowned as the CEO of Tesla and SpaceX. Our team comprises experts who have previously contributed their expertise to DeepMind, OpenAI, Google Research, Microsoft Research, Tesla, and the University of Toronto. Collectively, we have made significant contributions to the field, including the development of widely-used techniques such as the Adam optimizer, Batch Normalization, Layer Normalization, and the discovery of adversarial examples. Additionally, we have introduced innovative methodologies and analyses like Transformer-XL, Autoformalization, the Memorizing Transformer, Batch Size Scaling, and μTransfer. Our team has played pivotal roles in the creation of groundbreaking advancements such as AlphaStar, AlphaCode, Inception, Minerva, GPT-3.5, and GPT-4.
We are fortunate to have the guidance of Dan Hendrycks, the director of the Center for AI Safety, serving as an advisor to our team.
