Engineers from Tesla are Allegedly Leaving to Join Elon Musk’s AI Startup

Recently, Elon Musk’s xAI launched a chatbot called Grok to compete with OpenAI’s ChatGPT. In response to reports from The Information that Tesla engineers are joining Musk’s AI startup, Musk accused OpenAI of aggressively recruiting Tesla employees by offering them significant compensation. This led Musk to increase salaries for Tesla engineering team members as a reaction.

Musk’s push to gain more control over Tesla’s AI strategy was also highlighted in a recent post on X, where he expressed his discomfort with expanding the company’s AI and robotics capabilities without a significant voting bloc control. His comments sparked controversy among investors, with some being unnerved by his statements. Analysts like Dan Ives of Wedbush Securities labeled Musk’s comments an ultimatum, while longtime Tesla bull Ross Gerber described them as bizarre and likened them to “blackmail” of Tesla’s investors.

Despite the controversy surrounding his comments, Musk continues to recruit top AI talent and solidify his control over Tesla’s AI strategy. The tech community and investors are closely monitoring his efforts in this area.
