Elon Musk pledges to create a “third option” rival AI called TruthGPT
By Ethan Huff // Apr 20, 2023

During an appearance with Fox News' Tucker Carlson this week, billionaire electric vehicle (EV) guru Elon Musk promised to unleash a new "TruthGPT" artificial intelligence (AI) "chatbot" that he says will function as a competitor against the chatbots previously unleashed by Microsoft and Google.

Calling it "the third option" in the AI chatbot race, Musk says his TruthGPT will not "lie" like the others, which he says are "closed source" and "for profit."

"It's simply starting late," Musk explained about his TruthGPT chatbot. "But I will try to create a third option."

Musk, who claims to be a champion of free speech ever since he took over Twitter and made it private, is promising that the TruthGPT chatbot will have a lesser left-wing bias than the others, which are widely criticized for dispensing "woke" responses to all sorts of questions.

(Related: Last month, an AI chatbot committed its first "murder" by encouraging a mentally deranged man to kill himself in order to stop global warming.)

Wait, didn't Elon Musk just call for a six-month moratorium on all AI projects?

Musk also took aim at Google co-founder Larry Page, accusing him of failing to take the threat of AI seriously – even as Musk himself is announcing plans to unleash his own competitor's AI system.

"I'm going to start something which I call 'TruthGPT,' or a maximum truth-seeking AI that tries to understand the nature of the universe," Musk stated, adding that TruthGPT "might be the best path to safety" in that it is "unlikely to annihilate humans."

To make his project a reality, Musk is poaching AI researchers from Google parent company Alphabet Inc. From this, he plans to unleash a rival OpenAI platform.

Just last month, Musk registered a new firm in the state of Nevada called X.AI Corp, which lists Musk as the sole director and Jared Birchall, the managing director of Musk's family office, as secretary.

The announcement about TruthGPT comes just days after Musk and a group of AI experts and industry executives called for a six-month pause on all AI projects, warning that they have the potential to destroy society and humanity itself.

Musk addressed this during his interview with Tucker, warning that "AI is more dangerous than, say, mismanaged aircraft design or production maintenance or bad car production."

"It has the potential of civilizational destruction," he added – you can watch a portion of the interview below:

Musk says he is concerned that a "super intelligent" AI has the potential to write incredibly well and thus persuade and manipulate public opinions in one direction or another.

Over the weekend, Musk tweeted that he once spoke with Barack Hussein Obama about the threat of AI. Musk says he encouraged Obama to enact more "AI regulation" so as to prevent an AI takeover of the world.

Hypocritically, Musk co-founded his own AI development firm called OpenAI back in 2015, which he stepped down from in 2019 to focus his attention on Tesla and SpaceX.

"Tesla was competing for some of the same people as OpenAI & I didn't agree with some of what OpenAI team wanted to do," Musk explained in the tweet.

"The danger of training AI to be woke – in other words, lie – is deadly," Musk warned in another tweet.

Since its release last November, ChatGPT has been caught advising people on which antibiotic drugs to take; fooling job recruiters into thinking it was a real person with proper job qualifications; writing essays for students; developing recipes for cooks, and much more.
