  • Elon Musk unveils 'TruthGPT': A maximum truth-seeking AI aimed at addressing existing AI models' limitations and prioritizing response accuracy.
  • According to Musk, TruthGPT will provide factual and reliable information to combat misinformation.
  • Musk actively pursues the development of TruthGPT, expressing concerns about AI risks and emphasizing the need for a different approach to ensure safety, as reflected in his tweets and open letter and his establishment of X.AI, a new AI company.
During a recent interview with Tucker Carlson on Fox News, Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla and SpaceX, revealed that he is working on a new project called ‘TruthGPT.’ According to Musk, TruthGPT is an alternative to ChatGPT, an AI language model developed by OpenAI, designed to be a ‘maximum truth-seeking AI.’

“I’m going to start something which you call TruthGPT or a maximum truth-seeking AI that tries to understand the nature of the universe. And 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,” Musk said during the interview.

Musk expressed his concerns about the potential risks associated with artificial intelligence and emphasized the need for a different approach to AI creation to ensure the safety of humanity. He highlighted that TruthGPT aims to address some of the limitations of existing AI models, such as ChatGPT, by prioritizing truthfulness and accuracy in its responses.

Musk's vision for TruthGPT is to create an AI that goes beyond just generating plausible responses based on data patterns but seeks to provide factual and reliable information. He believes that this ‘maximum truth-seeking’ approach will help prevent the spread of misinformation and fake news, which have become pervasive in the age of social media and digital communication.

While Musk did not disclose technical details about TruthGPT during the interview, his comments suggest that he is actively working on developing an alternative AI model that prioritizes truthfulness and accuracy as its core principles. With his track record of pushing the boundaries of technology, many in the tech and AI communities eagerly anticipate further updates on Musk's ambitious project, TruthGPT.


This is not Elon Musk's first mention of the ‘TruthGPT.’ In February, Musk tweeted about the need for ‘TruthGPT’ and raised concerns about the risks associated with large-scale AI models, including those developed by OpenAI. He further emphasized these concerns by signing an open letter in March, along with other AI researchers, urging companies to pause ‘giant AI experiments’ that lack understanding, predictability, and reliable control.

While the current progress of Musk's ‘TruthGPT’ remains undisclosed, his mention of the model in the interview suggests a serious pursuit of the concept. Additionally, Musk quietly established a new AI company called X.AI in March, indicating his continued commitment to addressing the challenges and risks associated with artificial intelligence and bias.
