Entrepreneur and multi-billionaire Elon Musk announces plans to develop a better alternative to the ChatGPT chatbot, accusing the Microsoft-funded AI service of being programmed by “left-wing experts” who “taught the chatbot to lie”.
Musk, who owns Tesla and Twitter, accused Google CEO Larry Page in an interview with Fox News’ Tucker Carlson of not caring or understanding how AI security works.
– I’m going to start something that I call TruthGPT, or a maximum truth-seeking AI that tries to understand the nature of the universe.
– I think this may be the best path to safety in the sense that an AI that cares about understanding the universe is unlikely to annihilate humanity because we are an interesting part of the universe, he continues.
According to Reuters news agency sources, Musk has already hired several of Google’s AI researchers to work on developing the service.
It can also be noted that Elon Musk has previously warned about the risks of AI and still believes that AI has the “potential” to destroy human civilization.
Musk was also one of the co-founders of Open AI, the company behind Chat GPT – but stepped down from the board in 2018 because he needed to focus on his work with Tesla and Space X instead.
