Elon Musk Plans to Launch ‘TruthGPT’ as a Rival to Google, Microsoft, and OpenAI

Elon Musk has made public his intent to release ‘TruthGPT,’ an artificial intelligence (AI) platform that will compete with Google, Microsoft, and OpenAI. He intends to challenge their present artificial intelligence (AI) products, which, according to him, are not focused on pursuing the truth to the greatest extent possible.

During an interview with Tucker Carlson of Fox News Channel, Elon Musk criticised OpenAI, which is supported by Microsoft, for “training the AI to lie.” He said that the company had become “closely allied with Microsoft” in addition to being “for-profit” and “closed source.” He also took a shot at Larry Page, one of Google’s co-founders, implying that Page does not take the issue of AI safety seriously.

During the course of the conversation, he made the following statement: “I’m going to start something that I call ‘TruthGPT,’ which is a maximum truth-seeking AI that tries to understand the nature of the universe.”

Musk said that TruthGPT will investigate the physics of the cosmos in an effort to discover the “best path to safety” that is “unlikely to annihilate humans.” He said that the launch was an attempt to establish a third choice, in addition to the ones that are already being provided by Google and Microsoft.

Ironically, Musk’s decision to debut his artificial intelligence platform came only a few weeks after he and a group of AI specialists urged for a six-month suspension in the development of systems more powerful than OpenAI’s freshly released GPT-4. The reason given was the possible threats that these systems may pose to society.

Musk has also restated his earlier warnings about the perils of artificial intelligence (AI), stating that “AI is more dangerous than, say, mismanaged aircraft design or production maintenance or bad car production.” He issued a warning that artificial intelligence has the risk of causing “civilizational destruction.”

Musk was one of the co-founders of OpenAI in 2015, however he resigned from the board of directors of the firm in 2018. He disclosed that he left OpenAI because he needed to concentrate on Tesla and SpaceX. He also said that he left OpenAI for other reasons, including the fact that “Tesla was competing for some of the same people as OpenAI and I didn’t agree with some of what OpenAI team wanted to do.”

It has been rumoured that Musk has been recruiting AI experts from Google in order to build a firm that would compete with OpenAI. According to a document filed with the state of Nevada, Musk created a company last month under the name X.AI Corp. This Nevada corporation lists Musk as the only director of the company.
