Tech billionaire and Twitter owner Elon Musk has launched a new Artificial Intelligence service to “help understand reality” – but nobody knows what it actually is.
Musk took to the social media site he owns to announce the launch of xAI.
However, hardly anything is known about it.

According to the company's website, it is separate to Twitter's parent company X Corp, but will “work closely with X (Twitter), Tesla, and other companies to make progress towards our mission.”
The mission is also unknown, but Musk tweeted: “Announcing formation of @xAI to understand reality.”
The only other details on the very empty website is a list of who is working on the new project.
Headed by Musk, the other team members are also pretty unknown, such as Igor Babuschkin, Manuel Kroiss, Yuhuai Wu who describes his role at xAI as being involved with “reasoning”, and Ross Nordeen.
No information is given as to what the team members are doing or what their backgrounds are.
The formation of the company is another headline moment for Musk this week, after he was told that the Taliban backed Twitter.
Anas Haqqani, the Taliban thought-leader, officially and publicly endorsed the SpaceX CEO as a man who holds "important advantages" over the new social media app, Threads.

Meta launched Threads as a rival to Twitter, in the hopes of shouldering CEO Musk out of the top social media spot, but he Taliban are on Twitter's side.
Taking to his seemingly favourite social media platform, Haqqani endorsed Musk and his "freedom of speech" led platform vision.
The Taliban head wrote: “Twitter doesn't have an intolerant policy like Meta.
“Other platforms cannot replace it."
Where Twitter may reportedly be out of favour with many of its members, with some deciding to abandon the app for pastures new as long ago as November last year, it seems the Taliban are staunch enjoyers of the blue bird platform.
