Elon Musk says he will launch rival to Microsoft-backed ChatGPT
Billionaire Elon Musk said on Monday he will launch an artificial intelligence (AI) platform that he calls "TruthGPT" to challenge the offerings from Microsoft and Google.
He criticized Microsoft-backed OpenAI, the firm behind chatbot sensation ChatGPT, of "training the AI to lie" and said OpenAI has now become a "closed source", "for-profit" organization "closely allied with Microsoft".
He also accused Larry Page, co-founder of Google, of not taking AI safety seriously.
"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," Musk said in an interview with Fox News Channel's Tucker Carlson aired on Monday.
He said TruthGPT "might be the best path to safety" that would be "unlikely to annihilate humans".
"It's simply starting late. But I will try to create a third option," Musk said.
