Elon Musk has proposed AI researchers in recent weeks about forming a new research lab to develop a competitive substitute to OpenAI’s ChatGPT, citing people with direct knowledge of the effort.
Tesla and Twitter chief Musk has been recruiting Igor Babuschkin, a researcher who recently left Alphabet’s DeepMind AI unit, the report said. Musk and Babuschkin have discussed assembling a team to pursue AI research but the project is still in the early stages, with no concrete plan to develop specific products, the report said quoting an interview with the latter. Babuschkin added that has not officially signed onto the Musk initiative.
The report comes after ChatGPT, the viral chatbot developed by OpenAI that can draft prose, poetry or even computer code on command, gained immense attention in Silicon Valley.
Elon Musk in the past had shared his thoughts on AI and its future and why he had left OpenAi, is now planning to launch a powerful competitor of ChatGPT in the market. ChatGPT has a lot of rivals already like Google’s Bard, Bing and many others which are trying to compete.
We believe as chatbots are trending these days, every tech giant is focusing on them and trying to launch its own chatbot as a competition for ChatGPT with various new and advanced features to attract users. And we believe, Elon Musk is also preparing for the same and anytime soon we can expect something big from his side!
