In recent weeks, billionaire Elon Musk contacted experts in artificial intelligence

To discuss establishing a new research lab to create an alternative to chatbot ChatGPT.

Igor Babuschkin, a researcher who just left Alphabet's DeepMind AI unit, has been in talks with Elon Musk

To head the creation of the rival to high-profile chatbot produced by company OpenAI.

Babuschkin specialises in the kinds of machine learning models that underpin ChatGPT

A chatbot that has already passed MBA examinations, authored prose and poetry, and is rapidly replacing people in the US.
