Elon Musk’s X.AI is a bottomless money pit

  • Elon Musk’s AI startup, X.AI, aims to raise $1 billion in capital.
  • Concerns have been raised about whether investor money in X.AI might be invested in a bottomless pit.
  • The outcome of X.AI’s ambitious goals will determine if investor money is wisely deployed, requiring careful evaluation of risks and rewards.

Elon Musk’s AI startup, X.AI, has filed to raise $1 billion in fresh capital, and has already raised $135 million out of this target.

The company’s goal is to “understand the true nature of the universe” and compete in the AI space.

However, there are concerns about whether investor money is being poured into a bottomless pit.

One of comments on Reddit, “If you’re an investor just throw your money in the hole…,” vividly illustrates the skepticism and concerns surrounding the investment in Elon Musk’s AI startup, X.AI.

According to a report by Bloomberg, Musk’s previous pledge to fund OpenAI with $1 billion of his own money did not fully materialize, and now he is seeking to raise a similar amount for his own AI company.

Investment needs to be cautious.

According to another comment on reddit: “So far it’s known that the deepest pockets make the best AI’s, his pockets are pretty deep, I’ll bite! Tesla and SpaceX are a great track record. And AI doesn’t need to involve knowledge in social media. This is a buy for me!”

This kind of comments reflects the uncertainty and caution that some individuals in the Reddit community may feel regarding the viability and success of X.AI as an AI startup.

This has raised questions about the sustainability and potential returns of such large investments in AI startups. Musk’s X saying “We are not raising money right now” has also caused some confusion about the fundraising efforts.

It’s essential for investors to carefully evaluate the risks and potential rewards, considering Musk’s track record, the specifics of X.AI’s plans, and the broader landscape of the AI industry.
