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

The billionaire slammed the company’s demonstration of its new AI model called GPT-4o “made me cringe.”

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

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

Musk left comments on several 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 helped to 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-leaning bias and called some responses “concerning.”

He’s also issued a high-profile lawsuit against OpenAI, accusing it of abandoning its founding principles amid a multibillion-dollar partnership with Microsoft.

Musk has also launched a rival AI company, xAI, and an AI-powered chatbot to compete with ChatGPT.

Amid the posts mocking OpenAI’s latest release, the Tesla CEO also took the time to comment on a post about his own AI chatbot — claiming 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, made outside normal working hours.
