Elon Musk says he’s working on his own artificial intelligence, ‘Truth GPD’
In an interview with an American channel FoxNews, Elon Musk explained that he is working on creating his own artificial intelligence, named “TruthGPT,” which will be responsible for “seeking the ultimate truth.” Twitter boss OpenAI believes it is training its AI, ChatGPT, to “stay awake”.
Elon Musk explained on Monday that he is working on developing his own artificial intelligence, dubbed “TruthGPT,” that will be responsible for “maximal truth-seeking” and compete with other existing software, which he said lacks adequate safeguards.
“An AI that Seeks Maximum Truth”
“I’m going to introduce something called true GPT or AI that seeks the maximum truth and tries to understand the nature of the universe,” Elon Musk explained in an interview with the US channel. Fox News. The boss of Twitter, Tesla, SpaceX and Neuralink believes that this is the “best way” to guarantee the safety of humanity, because “an AI that cares about understanding the universe does not risk destroying humans, because we are an interesting part. The universe.”
According to him, these ideal AIs will act like humans who want to “protect the habitat” of chimpanzees, while having the ability to “hunt and kill them all.” Various specialized media have already reported for a few weeks that Elon Musk is investing in the field of artificial intelligence. In particular, in March he founded a new company specializing in this field, based in X.AI and Nevada.
Compete with ChatGPT
According to Financial Times, this new company will have to compete with OpenAI, the Californian start-up that designed ChatGPT, the latest generation of AI capable of interacting with humans and producing all kinds of text on demand. The success of this interface, released at the end of November, has started a real competition for this high-potential technology.
In February, Elon Musk already revealed his intentions by tweeting: “What we need is TruthGPT.” He co-founded OpenAI in 2015, before leaving the company in 2018. He later criticized the company, most notably in a tweet last December that it was training AI to be “woke” (a term used to refer to the fringes of the American left) and, in other words, “lie.”
On Monday, Elon Musk, who signed the latest call to suspend research into next-generation AI, said the technology “has the potential to destroy civilization” and called for a “regulator” for the field. According to the Financial Times, the entrepreneur recently hired Igor Babushkin and Manuel Grois, both of whom worked at DeepMind, the AI branch of Alphabet (Google’s parent company).
He reportedly bought about 10,000 graphics processors — the computers needed to train language models, the foundation of the AI systems he builds.
