Renowned billionaire and owner of Tesla and Twitter, Mr. Elon Musk, has announced the launch of an artificial intelligence (AI) chatbot called “TruthGPT”. This new AI is aimed at competing with ChatGPT, the popular AI chatbot developed by OpenAI.
In an interview with Fox News host Tucker Carlson that aired on April 17, Musk revealed his plans for TruthGPT. He described it as an “ultimate truth-seeking AI” that will attempt to understand the nature of the universe. Musk believes that developing an AI that cares about the universe could be the key to ensuring safety, as it would lack any tendency to harm humans, considering them as an interesting part of the universe.
This is not the first time Musk has expressed concerns about the potential dangers of artificial intelligence. In the past, he has been vocal about the need for safety protocols and regulations in the development and deployment of AI technologies. Along with a group of AI experts and industry executives, Musk had previously signed an open letter calling for a halt to the practice of creating AI systems that surpass the capabilities of “GPT-4” chatbot until adequate security protocols are in place. This is due to the perceived risks posed by such technology to society and humanity.
With the launch of TruthGPT, Musk aims to develop an AI chatbot that prioritizes truth-seeking and understanding the universe, while prioritizing safety and minimizing the potential risks associated with advanced AI technologies. As Musk continues to explore the frontier of AI and its potential impact on society, the development of TruthGPT is expected to generate significant interest and attention from the AI community, businesses, and the general public alike.
