About xAI

xAI is a new company working on building artificial intelligence to accelerate human scientific discovery. We are guided by our mission to advance our collective understanding of the universe.

Technical Team

Our team is led by Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla and SpaceX. We have previously worked at DeepMind, OpenAI, Google Research, Microsoft Research, Tesla, and the University of Toronto. Collectively we contributed some of the most widely used methods in the field, in particular the Adam optimizer, Batch Normalization, Layer Normalization, and the discovery of adversarial examples. We further introduced innovative techniques and analyses such as Transformer-XL, Autoformalization, the Memorizing Transformer, Batch Size Scaling, ╬╝Transfer, and SimCLR. We have worked on and led the development of some of the largest breakthroughs in the field including AlphaStar, AlphaCode, Inception, Minerva, GPT-3.5, and GPT-4.

AI Tutors

Our in-house AI tutors work hand-in-hand with the technical team to create and curate high quality data for training and evaluating our models. Our tutors are experts in a wide array of fields and have expert writing skills.


Our team is advised by Dan Hendrycks who currently serves as the director of the Center for AI Safety.


We partner closely with X Corp to bring our technology to more than 500 million users of the X app.
