Elon Musk has launched xAI, an artificial intelligence startup aiming to rival existing AI chat software providers.

xAI's team includes engineers recruited from major U.S. technology firms, with Musk personally leading the startup.

Musk believes in creating an AI that is "maximally curious" to align its behavior with human values and reduce risks.

xAI focuses on Explainable AI, enabling humans to understand the rationale behind AI decisions and predictions.

The company's timeline for superintelligence emergence is predicted within five to six years.
