Elon Musk says he’ll create ‘TruthGPT’ to counter AI ‘bias’

Elon Musk, billionaire owner of Twitter, is once again warning of the dangers of artificial intelligence to humanity, and claiming that the popular AI chatbot ChatGPT has a liberal bias that he plans to counter with his own creation. In an interview with Fox News host Tucker Carlson, Musk announced his plans to create “TruthGPT,” a maximum truth-seeking AI that tries to understand the nature of the universe, with the idea that an AI that wants to understand humanity is less likely to destroy it. Musk also expressed concerns that ChatGPT “is being trained to be politically correct,” with a New York Post report indicating that OpenAI’s content moderation system is more permissive of hateful comments made about conservatives than the exact same comments made about liberals.

In the interview, Musk also advocated for the regulation of artificial intelligence, calling AI “more dangerous” than cars or rockets and said it has the potential to destroy humanity. Separately, Musk has incorporated a new business called X.AI Corp., with himself listed as its director and his longtime adviser, Jared Birchall, as secretary, according to a Nevada business filing.

Musk has long expressed strong opinions about artificial intelligence and has dismissed other tech leaders, including Mark Zuckerberg and Bill Gates, for having what he has described as a “limited” understanding of the field. While Musk was an early investor in OpenAI – the startup behind ChatGPT – and co-chaired its board upon its 2015 founding as a nonprofit AI research lab, he resigned from the board in early 2018. OpenAI tied Musk’s departure to Tesla’s work on building automated driving systems, stating that “As Tesla continues to become more focused on AI, this will eliminate a potential future conflict for Elon.”
