Elon Musk claimed in an interview that aired late Monday that he plans to compete with Microsoft and Google’s artificial intelligence projects with “truth-seeking AI” that rejects political correctness.
The billionaire CEO of Tesla and Twitter expressed his worries about the threat posed by AI once more, stating that it has “the potential of civilizational destruction.”
He added that he was concerned that the ChatGPT bot developed by startup OpenAI was getting politicized.
Musk declared, “I’m going to launch something called TruthGPT, or an absolute truth-seeking AI that attempts to comprehend the nature of the universe.
He believed that AI will consider humans to be an intriguing aspect of the universe and opt against “annihilating humans.”
Business records reveal that Musk has established an artificial intelligence company called X.AI with its headquarters in the US state of Nevada.
He just combined Twitter with a brand-new “X” shell corporation, maintaining the platform’s identity but changing the firm’s.
A few weeks prior to joining experts in signing an open letter calling for a general pause in the development of AI technology, Musk founded a competitor to OpenAI.
The signatories claimed that the hiatus should be utilized to strengthen regulation and guarantee the safety of AI systems.
However, detractors criticized the letter for being a “hot mess” of “AI hype” and misrepresenting a scientific paper.
To assist with translations, search, and targeted advertising, major internet companies like Google, Meta, and Microsoft have spent years developing AI systems, often known as machine learning or big data.
Musk claimed that he formerly had a strong friendship with Larry Page, a co-founder of Google, and that the two often discussed the safety of AI well into the night.
Musk stated of Page that “he really seemed to want digital super-intelligence, basically digital god, as soon as possible.”
“You can’t just charge ahead and hope for the best,” the speaker said.
With the release of ChatGPT around the end of last year, which can produce natural-sounding language from a brief cue, OpenAI significantly increased interest in AI.
OpenAI was co-founded by Musk, although he departed the business in 2018.
Microsoft has since announced it is investing billions of dollars in OpenAI and has put its technology to work in its Bing Internet search service.
