Engineers from Tesla are Allegedly Leaving to Join Elon Musk’s AI Startup

Elon Musk’s xAI has recently launched a chatbot named Grok to compete against OpenAI’s ChatGPT. According to recent reports from The Information, Tesla engineers have started joining Musk’s AI startup. The move comes as Musk aims to increase his control over Tesla’s AI strategy. Three engineers have left Tesla to work for xAI, with Ethan Knight, a machine-learning scientist and former Tesla employee, recently joining xAI to work on computer vision for self-driving technology.

In response to the report, Musk accused OpenAI of aggressively recruiting Tesla engineers by offering them considerable compensation. Musk stated that he had been increasing salaries for Tesla’s engineering team members in reaction to this. Musk’s push to gain more control over Tesla’s AI strategy was also highlighted in a recent post on X, where he expressed his discomfort with expanding the company’s AI and robotics capabilities without a significant voting bloc control.

Musk’s comments sparked some controversy, with investors being unnerved by his statements. Analysts like Dan Ives of Wedbush Securities labeled Musk’s comments as an ultimatum, while longtime Tesla bull Ross Gerber described them as bizarre and likened them to “blackmail” of Tesla’s investors. Musk’s efforts to recruit top AI talent and solidify his control over Tesla’s AI strategy have been closely monitored by the tech community and investors alike.
