Elon Musk to launch truth-seeking artificial intelligence platform TruthGPT
Elon Musk reportedly revealed to Fox News host Tucker Carlson on April 17 that he is creating a ChatGPT competitor called “TruthGPT,” a large language model (LLM) that Musk claims would be taught to investigate the secrets of the cosmos.
“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.”
According to Musk, this truth-seeking AI will also combat what he sees as “left-wing” bias in the sector. Carlson was informed by Musk that ChatGPT “is programmed by left-wing experts, which trains the chatbots to lie.” According to Carlson, “the deeper problem is not simply that it will become autonomous and turn us all into slaves, but that it will control our understanding of reality and do it in a really dishonest way,” and he added that “it could be programmed to lie to us for political effect.”
Musk also appeared to address concerns over his entering the crowded LLM market — a move he signaled with the purchase of a reported 10,000 GPUs — just weeks after signing a petition calling for a pause on related research in order to evaluate safety concerns:
“I think this might be the best path to safety in the sense that an AI that cares about understanding the universe is unlikely to annihilate humans because we are an interesting part of the universe.”
When it comes to blockchain applications, artificial intelligence has also proven its potential. Cointelegraph has been covering a string of token trades made by ChatGPT-4 since March 17. ChatGPT-4 gave the following advice when asked how to divide $100 among other coins and tokens: $50 for Bitcoin, $25 for Ether, $15 for Cosmos’ ATOM, and $10 for nonfungible tokens and other Web3 projects. As said by the chatbot:
“The overall trend shows that Bitcoin acts as a safe haven during times of financial instability, such as the recent Silicon Valley Bank and Signature Bank failures. Additionally, Bitcoin’s dominance is nearing 50%, and some analysts predict a move towards $100k.”
