Elon Musk might be forming an AI chatbot rival to ChatGPT

12:23 PM February 28, 2023

Elon Musk is allegedly approaching AI experts to create an AI chatbot similar to ChatGPT, according to a recent report from The Information.

Specifically, he approached the billionaiare tech entrepreneur Igor Babuschkin, the AI researcher who worked on Alphabet’s DeepMind AI, concerning a new research lab.

Musk co-founded OpenAI in 2015 to monitor AI development and serve as its chairman. Three years later, he stepped down amid concerns regarding a conflict of interest. 

What has Elon Musk been up to?


The Tesla CEO seems to closely monitor tech trends as he is trying to adapt to the global AI race. 

The Information said he has been discussing with Babuschkin about forming an AI team. However, it is reportedly in its early stages, with no concrete plans to develop specific products.

Moreover, the publication says Babucshkin is not an official member of the project yet. He and Musk have not elaborated further on the news at the time of writing.

Yet, the SpaceX CEO has been busy with other technological developments. For example, Starlink recently enabled satellite internet access to the Philippines.


Tesla has been developing new features for the upcoming Cybertruck. Recent photos show that the company applied a black tonneau cowl to the futuristic-looking vehicle. 

Various critics said the minor change makes the car look “extra refined.” More importantly, it could be a sign that the Cybertruck will launch soon. 


On February 26, Elon Musk tweeted “new metal,” alluding to his recently filed patent. The document describes the metal as an “ultra-hard cold-worked steel alloy.” 

In other words, Tesla could be emphasizing the steel’s hardness. Cold-working involves heating metal at extreme temperatures and then rapidly cooling or quenching it. 

Consequently, it could improve the steel’s durability and save time and production costs. Finally, let’s talk about what Elon Musk has been doing with Twitter. 

Since becoming “Chief Twit,” the billionaire has implemented several changes to the birdie social media.

For example, he has implemented color-coded verification icons for individuals, businesses, and government agencies.

His ultimate goal for Twitter is to turn it into a super app similar to China’s WhatsApp and Singapore’s Grab.
