Elon Musk, the owner of Twitter and a billionaire, is warning about the risks of artificial intelligence. He plans to create his own AI chatbot called "TruthGPT" to compete with ChatGPT, which he believes has a political bias. Musk wants TruthGPT to seek the truth and understand the universe, rather than be trained to be politically correct. He thinks an AI that understands humanity is less likely to harm it.
Musk thinks that AI is more dangerous than cars or rockets, and that it needs to be regulated. He has expressed concerns about artificial intelligence for many years and has criticized other technology leaders for having a limited understanding of the field.
Musk was an early investor in OpenAI, the company behind ChatGPT, but he resigned from the board in 2018. OpenAI is now working with Microsoft and is no longer a nonprofit organization. Musk has praised ChatGPT as "scary good," but he has also pointed out examples of left-wing bias in the software.
In an interview with Fox News, Musk said that he believes an AI that wants to understand humanity is less likely to destroy it. He also said that he created the name and idea for OpenAI, but resigned from the board in 2018.
