Elon Musk reportedly bought thousands of 100,000 GPUs for a Twitter AI project

Musk has reportedly purchased 100,000 GPUs for use at one of the company’s two remaining data centers, a move that is reportedly supportive of the company’s artificial intelligence effort. A source told the outlet Musk is “committed” to the initiative, given the fact that there would be little reason for Twitter to spend so much money on datacenter grade GPUs if they weren’t planning to use them for AI work.

The technology would be used by Twitter, Insider suggests, to create a generative AI that would be trained on its own enormous dataset. It’s not clear how Twitter would utilize the technology. The report suggests a generative AI could enhance Twitter’s search function or assist the company in rebuilding its advertising business.

Musk has been a critic of OpenAI, the artificial intelligence research organization he founded in 2015. “I’m still confused as to how a nonprofit to which I donated ~$100 million somehow became a $30 billion market capitalization. If this is legal, everyone should do it,” Musk said in one of his recent Twitter missives against OpenAI Limited Partnership, which he created in 2015 as a for-profit subsidiary. Recently, Musk has written an open letter urging for a six-week moratorium on AI development.

Musk’s recent controversy with Semafor seems more personal than his rivalry with OpenAI. In 2018, Musk reportedly told Sam Altman, one of his fellow co-founders at OpenAI, the lab was falling behind Google. Musk then suggested that he should be in charge, a proposal Altman and OpenAI’s other cofounders rejected.

Musk left OpenAI after a power struggle over artificial intelligence led to OpenAI’s closure. Musk, however, publicly denies leaving OpenAI for a conflict of interest involving Tesla. Elon Musk, the billionaire CEO of Tesla, was previously a member of OpenAI. After his departure, Musk’s payments stopped, according to Semafor. OpenAI had to raise money quickly after Musk’s departure.

In 2019, OpenAI created its for-profit subsidiary, which secured the necessary capital. Microsoft pledged $1 billion the same year. Musk became furious when OpenAI opened the ChatGPT platform to the public and the chatbot began to be covered by the media. One month later, Musk closed OpenAI’s access to Twitter’s “firehose” of data.

  • Elon Musk introduced new NFT features for Twitter after the acquisition.
  • Hackers compromised the British Army’s Twitter and YouTube accounts this weekend to promote crypto projects. The Twitter account retweeted posts about NFT sales, while the YouTube account posted videos about cryptocurrency and interviews with Elon Musk and Jack Dorsey.
