Elon Musk has always been an eccentric character, and he clearly wasn’t going to be oblivious to the latest tech trend.

Babuschkin noted that he would love to work with Musk in the growing industry of large-scale language modeling, a technology that was used to create chatbots like ChatGPT. However, he also assured that the said project is still at a very early stage of development and there is no specific development plan for it yet. In fact, the engineer mentioned that he has not officially joined the tycoon yet.
