According to a state filing from last month, the new firm is incorporated in Nevada and cites Musk as the sole director, as well as Jared Birchall, the director of his family’s offices, as the secretary.

Musk is no stranger to artificial intelligence ventures. He co-founded OpenAI before leaving nearly a decade ago.

However, following ChatGPT’s stratospheric growth in popularity, Musk lobbied for its regulation and signed an open letter urging tech leaders to put a six-month halt on its development.

According to the Journal, Musk believed ChatGPT was politically biassed — he reportedly warned on the “danger of training AI to be woke” — and that he wants to construct AI models that are “truth-seeking.”
