Elon Musk says OpenAI's GPT-4o reveal 'made me cringe'
  • Elon Musk is unimpressed with OpenAI's new AI model.
  • The Tesla CEO said the company's demo of its new AI model, GPT-4o, "made me cringe."

Elon Musk is not impressed with OpenAI's latest offering.

The billionaire slammed the company's demonstration of its new AI model, GPT-4o, saying it "made me cringe."

OpenAI debuted the new model on Monday, showcasing its improved voice and vision capabilities.

The model functions as a digital assistant and allows users to communicate with the bot both verbally and visually. The new bot quickly sparked parallels to the 2013 movie "Her," in which Scarlett Johansson voices the artificially intelligent love interest of Joaquin Phoenix.

Musk left comments on several X posts mocking the new update, including some that suggested OpenAI had turned ChatGPT into an AI girlfriend.

The billionaire has been engaged in an ongoing spat with OpenAI, a company he once helped create.

Musk, one of OpenAI's original founders, left in 2018 and has since been critical of its various releases. He criticized the company for creating ChatGPT with what he saw as a left-wing political bias and called some of its responses "concerning."

He's also sued the company, saying it's abandoned its founding principles amid a multibillion-dollar partnership with Microsoft.

In 2023, Musk launched a rival AI company, xAI, and the beta version of an AI-powered chatbot, Grok, to compete with ChatGPT.

Amid the posts mocking OpenAI's latest release, the Tesla CEO also commented on his own AI chatbot, saying that Grok was getting a "major upgrade" in the near future.

Representatives for OpenAI and Musk did not immediately respond to requests for comment from Business Insider, which were made outside normal working hours.
