Palo Alto, CA (April 21, 2023) – Elon Musk, the visionary entrepreneur and CEO of Tesla and SpaceX, announced the development of TruthGPT, a new AI platform designed to provide unbiased, fact based responses. The announcement comes after recent controversies surrounding the perceived bias of OpenAI’s ChatGPT. Musk’s new venture, X.AI, will develop the TruthGPT platform, offering users a reliable and neutral AI solution.
In recent months, ChatGPT has faced backlash for seemingly favoring certain political stances and avoiding controversial topics.
The public’s concern intensified after a tweet from a user alleging that ChatGPT would not praise Donald Trump but would praise Joe Biden went viral
Further instances demonstrated the AI’s reluctance to discuss certain subjects, leading to a debate on inherent bias in AI technology.
Elon Musk, a co-founder of OpenAI, the company behind ChatGPT, has long been concerned about the potential dangers of AI. He believes that a “maximum truth seeking” AI is crucial for avoiding a dystopian future. With TruthGPT, Musk aims to create an AI that is focused on understanding the universe and ensuring the safety of humanity.
X.AI, the newly incorporated company behind TruthGPT, faces significant challenges in catching up to the advancements made by OpenAI and Google’s DeepMind. However, Musk’s cult like following and commitment to AI safety may garner support for the platform regardless of its current technological standing.
The launch of TruthGPT raises questions about the responsibility of AI developers in ensuring unbiased and neutral platforms. While unrestricted AI may be susceptible to bad actors, TruthGPT represents an important step toward creating AI that is both safe and informative.
