The world richest man (Elon Musk) has not relented in his investment in technology. He has recently announced the release of his TruthGPT, which will rival and compete with ChatGPT, Google Bard and Bing AI.
Elon Musk currently sits as the world richest man with multiple investments. He currently owns Tesla, SpaceX, Twitter and other. He is currently working towards investing into the recent Artificial Intelligence trend.
In an open forum with Fox news, he announced the release of the TruthGPT which will be a strong rival for the ChatGPT. In his word, “I am going to start something which I call ‘TruthGPT’, or a maximum truth-seeking AI that tries to understand the nature of the universe”. He added that this his reason is because TruthGPT “might be the best path to safety” that would be “unlikely to annihilate humans”.
As a tech giant, Elon Musk will not do anything below professional. This is why several giants in the AI field have decided to sit up to ensure that the Musk TruthGPT will not sweep them of balance.
TruthGPT is expected to be AI chatbot that provides answers to questions based on the true information available on a subject matter. In essence, users will be able to access unbiased truth to any question.
The platform will be launched with a native cryptocurrency $Truth. This will enable users to unlock TruthGPT Pro features.
On TruthGPT, Users will be able to access two different modes which are chat and question mode. This will enable transparent conversations with the AI chatbot. Additionally, TruthGPT AI will present multiple options to the users. This will help them choose from these variety of options for more accuracy.
In my previous post, I listed 9 powerful alternatives to ChatGPT. All the AI tools listed in the post are powerful and can do alot. With Musk’s announcement, TruthGPT will soon join in the list of alternatives to compete favorably with ChatGPT and other AI chatbots out there.
The motivation and reason behind the name of the AI chatbot is in the fact that most times, both ChatGPT and Bing AI provides wrong answers to users on certain questions. These answers end up misleading the users who may not know the correct answer to the question been asked. As such, TruthGPT will pay attention to nothing less than the truth in providing responses to questions. The OpenAI model was trained with data from 2021. As such, it cannot provide answers to question of events that’s happened before 2021. This simply means that when you question ChatGPT or Bing AI with an event that took place before 2021, you will either not get an answer at all, or you will get a wrong answer.
It was revealed that Elon Musk was the co-founded OpenAI back then in 2015 when the technology started. In 2018, he stepped down from the company’s board so as to focus on Tesla and SpaceX.
He claims that AI has become too powerful to manipulate public opinion or even cause “civilizational destruction.”
The technology which will be used to develop TruthGPT would compete with similar AI backbones like OpenAI, Google’s DeepMind and other AI initiatives around the world.
Elon Musk has repeatedly made mention of the ‘TruthGPT’ and his plans for an AI driven chatbot that pays attention to 100% accurate information. In February 2023, 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. He added that the government needs to be prepared to step in if artificial intelligence gets out of hand.
At the moment, there is no price or fee stated for the AI tool. This is because it has not been fully launched for use. But then, be sure that at the point of release, a service fee will be charged, the same way it is for Twitter.
I wrote on the features of the ChatGPT AI tool which is currently trending and it is in massive use. The features of this tool will to a long extent determine the feature that will be deployed in the TruthGPT. This is because Musk’s AI tool is coming to compete with the leading Chatbots of which ChatGPT is king.
Therefore, we look forward for an AI toll that does all the things that ChatGPT can do and even more. Hence, suppose you are to advice Elon Musk and his team on this tool, what are the features you will recommend for this AI tool.
