In one of his recent statements, Elon Musk said that his AI company is more trustworthy compared to OpenAI and Google. Musk wants people to trust his new company.

Last week, the CEO of Tesla unveiled xAI, his eagerly awaited AI venture that aims to "understand the true nature of the universe." The billionaire emphasized the company's objective in a Friday Twitter Spaces as being to create a "good AGI" that is "maximally curious" and "truth-seeking."

He asserted that his organization shared the goal of developing effective AI with other big participants in the market, including OpenAI and Google, and that the business was in competition with them, as reported by Business Insider.

Musk added that competition made businesses more sincere and that it was important to have competition in the AI sector to prevent one company from monopolizing progress. Musk stressed throughout the conversation that, in contrast to well-established competitors, his company was just getting started and referred to the endeavor as "really embryonic."

The CEO of Twitter has criticized OpenAI, a business he helped start in 2015. He has alleged that some of the company's AI-powered chatbot's content moderation is biased. He has previously declared his intention to develop his own version of the bot under the name "TruthGPT."

Musk stated during the Spaces conversation that xAI's technology might provide "controversial" answers. Training an AI to be politically correct or "not say what it actually thinks is true," according to Musk, carries a "significant danger." He pledged that his own business will let its AI model express what it genuinely "believes."


Musk entered the industry with xAI

The term "extensible artificial intelligence" (also known as "xAI") refers to an AI system's capacity to scale and adapt to different applications. Musk sees xAI as a solution to pressing global issues like poverty and climate change.

On Friday, July 14, the xAI team will host a lively and dynamic Twitter Spaces conversation session. You are cordially invited to participate. The xAI team will be on hand at this event to engage with you personally and answer any questions you may have. Elon Musk has teamed up with Igor Babuschkin, Tony Wu, Christian Szegedy, and Greg Yang. xAI's objectives are:

  • Truth-seeking
  • Transparency
  • Safety

    What Musk is purporting to do cannot be done, and he knows this. The current tools that are available are politically-correct zombies. He wants to make a more conservative zombie. AI is not a Judgement Machine. It simply spits out what it’s told is true without ‘reflection.’ (Like most people.)

    Myself don’t trust any AI except for enhancing photos and videos only. I never use GPS or smart phones. My simple G4 Jitterbug flip phone doesn’t have GPS or internet access either. Also when on internet always use a VPN with none of my info in it, no email or anything. Will never trust government or some rich elitist like Musk. I like the fact he’s not a leftist, but trust him.

    Language models don’t have a clue if the info they’re saying is true or accurate, so how can “Truth-seeking” be achieved? Silly people. Sillier still are the people calling any of this “AI”.
