Elon Musk to Challenge ChatGPT With His Own AI Program


It was only a matter of time before Elon Musk got bored with his Twitter shenanigans. He's gotten everything he's wanted at the company. So the Tesla and SpaceX CEO now sets his sights elsewhere. Reports say that the world's richest man in the world is now creating his own AI chatbot to rival the "woke" ChatGPT success.

In the past weeks, Musk has reportedly reached out to artificial intelligence (AI) researchers in an attempt to create a program to rival OpenAI's ChatGPT. Some of the names that have been floated around is Igor Babuschkin, a former senior AI researcher at Google's Deepmind. The project is in its early stages and isn't looking to develop any specific products.

Musk himself had co-founded OpenAI together with Sam Altman back in 2015, but would eventually leave the board just three years later. He would go on to openly criticize ChatGPT. "The danger of training AI to be woke – in other words, lie – is deadly," Musk tweeted back in December.

AI competition is getting steeper after last year's breakthroughs. Bing, Bard, and the Microsoft-funded ChatGPT, among others, have each rolled out AI chatbot software that is pretty serviceable. Users and pundits have also made various "thought experiments" with the bots and have yielded somewhat successful results. These programs can summarize information quickly and provide real-time references.


Critics, however, point out that a program like OpenAI still need to work on model training and removing bias. Inappropriate behavior and inacuracies are common, too. The overall accuracy for searches is still much lower than the 95 percent originally indicated. IGI Global says that the actual rate is lower than that, at about 80 percent.

Nevertheless, the tech billionaire has always gotten what he wants. If his tweets and views are any indication, they show us that he wants a "based" AI program, which supposedly makes him edgy for using street slang. Lil B, we're guessing, doesn't want to be the guy that makes the chief twit cool.
