The Twitter CEO said that he wants to create a third option for a company that could challenge OpenAI and Google.
In an interview with Fox News, Musk said that hes thinking of calling the venture TruthGPT and that the goal would be to create a maximum truthseeking AI that tries to understand the nature of the universe and that hopefully does more good than harm.
Musk acknowledged that he would be starting with a significant disadvantage to his rivals as hes starting late. And, as is often the case, its unclear how serious or far along his plans actually are.
Musk has been known to move employees across his companies.
Musk said his motivation stemmed from concerns about the direction of AI and the threat it could pose to humanity.
But speculation about Musks AI ambitions has been mounting as he recently filed paperwork for a business called X.AI Corp.
