An extract from Walter Isaacson’s upcoming book on the Tesla CEO was released, reportedly providing a glimpse into Elon Musk’s connection to Shivon Zilis, a Neuralink executive and the mom of two of Musk’s children.
Isaacson. who has followed Musk for the last three years, shared a photo of Musk, Zilis, and their two kids on X. The 16-month-old twins were shown sitting on Zilis’ and Musk’s laps.
According to a report, Zilis informed her coworkers at Neuralink that she and Musk had created their twins via in vitro fertilization (IVF) and that they did not have a romantic connection.
Musk has nine children.
In 2017, Zilis joined Musk’s brain-chip startup, Neuralink, as its director of operations and special initiatives, but nothing more is known about their relationship. Until her departure in March, she also served as an adviser and then a member of the board at OpenAI, an artificial intelligence business, according to The Information.
According to the biographer, Musk discussed his worries about AI, including his belief that the exponential growth of AI threatens to overwhelm and level out human intellect, which Musk attributes to declining birth rates.
Musk formally announced x.AI in July. The company’s mission, as stated by the tycoon, is to discover the actual essence of the cosmos. It’s designed to compete with other AI heavyweights like OpenAI and Google.
As reported by CNN, Elon Musk’s new biography alleges that the South African entrepreneur secretly commanded his engineers to shut down Starlink services along the Crimean shore last year, preventing a Ukrainian sneak assault on the Russian naval force.
Musk reacted to the claim on X, saying that SpaceX had not deactivated anything. He said that he had declined proposals to extend SpaceX’s orbital internet connection to Sevastopol because of concern about becoming implicated in an act of war.
