Elon Musk ten years ago was interested in acquiring the British artificial intelligence company DeepMind. However, in January 2014, Google announced that it was buying DeepMind for $500 million.

According to the publication, back in 2013, Elon Musk was worried about the question of how exactly Google CEO Larry Page will use advanced technology. He sought to secure DeepMind from the search giant. Instead, the billionaire did not make official statements about his plans on DeepMind.

Currently, it is reported that Google on April 20 announced the merger of DeepMind with Google Brain to “significantly accelerate” the development of AI.

Recall, despite the signing of a letter suspending the development of artificial intelligence, Elon Musk plans to create a competitor to ChatGPT from OpenAI. To this end, he is currently busy recruiting a development team.
