From Elon Musk to Chinese tech titans, everyone wants Nvidia’s GPU chips. There might not be enough to go around

Posted by in categories: Elon Musk, robotics/AI

Elon Musk has loaded up on Nvidia GPUs for X, xAI, and Tesla. Meanwhile, Chinese tech titans are reportedly scrambling to buy $5 billion worth of the chips.

It seems like everyone and anyone wants to snap up Nvidia.

Sales of the company’s graphic processing units (GPUs) have surged since ChatGPT ignited an AI frenzy, propelling it to a stellar first-quarter earnings performance and boosting its total valuation to over $1 trillion back in May.

Elon Musk says Tesla cars now have a mind, figured out ‘some aspects of AGI’

Posted by in categories: Elon Musk, robotics/AI, transportation

Elon Musk claims that Tesla may have “figured out some aspects of AGI” as he believes that Tesla vehicles now have “a mind.”

The CEO has said several times that he believes most of Tesla’s value is attached to self-driving, ad he says Tesla could achieve it by the end of the year.

The Tesla community is divided between believers who think the automaker is indeed about to deliver on its long-stated promise, and people who have been burned too many times by missed timelines and think a robotaxi service from Tesla is still years away.

CEO claims X, formerly Twitter, is close to ‘break even’

Posted by in categories: Elon Musk, finance

X CEO Linda Yaccarino claims that the company formerly known as Twitter is almost breaking even.

“I’ve been at the company eight weeks,” Yaccarino said in her first broadcast interview since taking on her new role. “The operational run rate right now… we’re pretty close to break even.”

This is a surprising declaration, given the company’s financial struggles since its acquisition by Elon Musk. Ad revenue is plummeting as brands pause spending on the platform, and X has gone to desperate lengths to get more cash flow — remember when we all got rate limited for not subscribing to Twitter Blue? Or when the company curbed its developer community by charging exorbitant rates for API access?

Is X, the Wechat for the rest of us?

After a sudden rebrand, Twitter is now called X. This new name was previously discussed by Elon Musk, who strongly associates the “X” brand with Twitter’s future as an “everything” app. But what is an “everything” app, and how will X become one?

Aug 10, 2023 flips from ChatGPT to Elon Musk’s

Posted by in categories: Elon Musk, robotics/AI

There was a bit of a hubbub in February as it emerged that OpenAI had seemingly purchased in order to redirect it to the ChatGPT web interface. But now erstwhile backer, Twitter haver and X lover Elon Musk appears to have taken the valuable domain off their hands, or else someone has done it for him: now redirects to, the billionaire’s embryonic machine learning research outfit.

Of course domains are bought and sold every day. But domains are rare and highly expensive, especially those that form words or familiar abbreviations. When started redirecting to OpenAI’s site, Mashable pointed out that the domain could hardly have sold for less than’s $3.8 million the previous year, and likely attained a far higher price given the hype around artificial intelligence in general.

No doubt OpenAI hoped that the purchase of would turn confused URL bar typers into lifetime users. Or perhaps it intended to eventually move its consumer-facing operations (like ChatGPT’s web client) over to the shorter domain. It seems we’ll never know, because now the domain goes to

Why it’s impossible to build an unbiased AI language model

Posted by in categories: Elon Musk, robotics/AI

Plus: Worldcoin just officially launched. Why is it already being investigated?

AI language models have recently become the latest frontier in the US culture wars. Right-wing commentators have accused ChatGPT of having a “woke bias,” and conservative groups have started developing their own versions of AI chatbots. Meanwhile, Elon Musk has said he is working on “TruthGPT,” a “maximum truth-seeking” language model that would stand in contrast to the “politically correct” chatbots created by OpenAI and Google.

An unbiased, purely fact-based AI chatbot is a cute idea, but it’s technically impossible. (Musk has yet to share any details of what his TruthGPT would entail, probably because he is too… More.
