Billionaire Elon Musk recently announced his plan to launch an artificial intelligence (AI) platform that he calls “TruthGPT” to challenge the offerings from Microsoft and Google.
The development came even after Musk and a group of artificial intelligence experts and industry executives called for a six-month pause in developing systems more powerful than OpenAI’s newly launched GPT-4, citing potential risks to society.
Musk said in an interview with Fox News Channel’s Tucker Carlson aired on Monday. “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.”
“TruthGPT might be the best path to safety that would be unlikely to annihilate humans” he added.
According to a state filing, Musk last month registered a firm named X.AI Corp, incorporated in Nevada, as the sole director and Jared Birchall, the managing director of Musk’s family office, as a secretary.
Musk, CEO of Tesla and SpaceX, has also become CEO of Twitter, a social media platform he bought for $44 billion last year.Follow us on social media
