Elon Musk says his new xAI firm will use Twitter data, work with Tesla

Elon Musk on Friday said his new artificial intelligence company, xAI, will use public tweets from Twitter to train its AI models and work with Tesla on AI software.

The billionaire, who owns Twitter and runs Tesla, said during a Twitter Spaces audio chat that a relationship between his companies would have “mutual benefit” and could accelerate Tesla’s work in self-driving capabilities.

Musk has criticized other AI companies accusing them of developing the technology without considering risks to humans.
