Elon Musk, the visionary behind Tesla and SpaceX, has unveiled his latest venture: xAI, an artificial intelligence (AI) company with the lofty goal of "understanding the nature of the universe." This new project, separate from his other companies, comes as a direct challenge to AI giants like OpenAI and Google.
Musk's "pro-humanity" xAI aims to take AI to the next level by developing a mathematical "theory of everything" for large neural networks, the machine learning technology that has dominated AI for the past decade. The company's founding team is an all-star lineup of AI researchers from Google, DeepMind, and OpenAI. Despite the formidable competition, xAI's ambition is to enable everyone to understand our mathematical universe in ways unimaginable before.
