Elon Musk has recently approached AI researchers about establishing a new lab to create a substitute for OpenAI’s ChatGPT, according to persons with first-hand knowledge of the project, as reported by the Information on Monday.
interesting to me how many of the ChatGPT takes are either “this is AGI” (obviously not close, lol) or “this approach can’t really go that much further”.
trust the exponential. flat looking backwards, vertical looking forwards.

Igor Babuschkin, a researcher who just departed Alphabet’s Google Deep Mind AI unit, has being sought after by Tesla and Twitter CEO Elon Musk, according to the story.
The study comes after ChatGPT, an OpenAI text-based chatbot that can create prose, poetry, or even computer code when instructed, attracted a lot of interest in Silicon Valley.
After stepping down from the board of OpenAI in 2018, which he co-founded in 2015 as a nonprofit business with Silicon Valley investor Sam Altman, Musk provided his opinion on the topic.
