Elon Musk’s xAI To Launch AI Model

After announcing its existence in July, Elon Musk’s xAI is finally going to launch a product. He has posted on X that xAI is going to release its first AI to a select group. He says that it is the best AI model that currently exists, in some important respects.

As previously mentioned and the website reads, xAI’s mission statement is to “understand reality”, which is possibly to build an alternative to OpenAI’s woke chatbot, ChatGPT, as Musk calls it. Musk had been planning to build a rival since the beginning of the year and the formation of his AI company was planning to build just that.

The acquisition of Twitter, which is now X, was also just a step towards building Musk’s AI lab. He has hinted many times before that he would be using the data from the social media platform to train the AI model. Which is probably why he claims that it would be the best AI model that currently exists.

The xAI website says, “We are a separate company from X Corp, but will work closely with X, Tesla, and other companies to make progress towards our mission.” The website highlights the suitability of Twitter’s conversation data for training large language models, such as the one powering ChatGPT. xAI is being advised by Dan Hendrycks, who currently also serves as the director of the Center for AI Safety.

Furthermore, Musk also allegedly bought the ai.com domain from OpenAI, which used to redirect to ChatGPT before, but now it does to xAI’s website. No one clearly knows if Musk actually paid millions to either OpenAI or Saw.com for buying the domain.

Meanwhile, OpenAI had planned for a trademark for GPT-5 in March, and is also ready to announce several new updates to its AI models on its upcoming DevDay.
