Currently, Elon Musk is the richest person in the world with assets (net worth) worth 250.1 billion USD or more than IDR 3.8 trillion, based on a report from Forbes Real-Time Billionaires 2023.
The billionaire who bought Twitter in 2022 has founded a new company in the artificial intelligence (AI) sector called xAI. This company is said to be creating a competitor service to ChatGPT.
Apart from Twitter and xAI, the following is a list of Elon Musk’s companies which have been summarized, on Wednesday (29/11).
SolarCity was the second largest provider of solar power systems in the United States in 2013.
Lyndon and Peter Rive, who are Elon Musk’s cousins, created SolarCity in 2006. The initial concept and financial capital for SolarCity was underwritten by Musk.
In 2016, SolarCity was acquired by Tesla for US$66 billion and combined it with its battery energy storage products division to create Tesla Energy.
The Boring Company
In 2016, Elon Musk had founded this US construction company to build the tunnel.
The Boring Company project was primarily created for an inner-city transit system to address traffic challenges, and facilitate transportation.
Elon Musk considers that the Boring Company project is the best solution to overcome traffic problems.
Elon Musk is also the co-founder and owner of Neuralink Corporation, a neurotechnology company that develops implantable brain-machine interfaces.
The main goal of the company is to create brain dreams that will make humans super intelligent, cure traumatic brain injuries, and make paralyzed people walk again. Total investment in the company will exceed US$511 million in 2022.
In 2015, Musk created OpenAI, a non-profit artificial intelligence (AI) research company, whose goal is to develop artificial general intelligence that is safe and useful for everyone.
While he stepped down from the board in 2018, Musk continues to be a major donor. OpenAi received an investment of US$1.4 billion from Microsoft in 2019.
Musk is very concerned about AI overtaking humans and is reported to have invested heavily in DeepMind Technologies, which is currently owned by Google.
He did this to stay informed about how fast technology is developing.
The company claims it wants to ‘solve intelligence’ by combining computer technology and neuroscience to create ‘artificial general intelligence’.
