Ella Irwin, Elon Musk’s former head of trust and safety at X, has found a new post at Stability AI, the company that’s largely taken credit for the development of the text-to-image generation model called Stable Diffusion.

Irwin joined the company in the second half of December as its senior vice president of integrity, NBC News has learned. 

Irwin led X’s trust and safety work during what appeared to be some of the company’s most tumultuous and controversial periods. At Stability AI, she will oversee Stability AI’s strategy and implementation of safeguarding around issues like child safety, intellectual property and disinformation. 

Her hiring comes at a major inflection point for AI and the company.
