If you missed it on live TV, you missed one of Tucker Carlson’s most riveting and terrifying interviews.
Monday evening, Elon Musk discussed the threats posed by artificial intelligence with Fox News anchor Tucker. In response to concerns about liberal bias in AI chatbots, he revealed his intention to develop a non-woke chatbot.
Musk donated early on to OpenAI’s ChatGPT chatbot and voiced concerns about the trajectory of AI research. Large-language models are, in his words, being trained for political decorum.
“I came up with the name and the concept,” Musk said, lamenting that OpenAI is now inextricably linked to Microsoft and no longer a nonprofit.
Musk stated that he will begin his own AI program to compete with the one that could wipe out humanity.
“I’m going to start something which I call TruthGPT,” Musk told Carlson, “or a maximum truth-seeking AI that tries to understand the nature of the universe.”
“It’s simply starting late. But I will try to create a third option,” Musk said.
In addition, Musk is calling for regulation of artificial intelligence. He warned, “AI is more dangerous than, say, mismanaged aircraft design or production maintenance or bad car production,” adding, “It has the potential of civilizational destruction.”
According to Reuters, Musk also warned that “a super intelligent AI can write exceptionally well and potentially manipulate public opinion.”
He tweeted over the weekend that he had conferred with former U.S. President Barack Obama and urged him to “encourage AI regulation” in Washington.
Musk co-founded OpenAI in 2015, but resigned from the board of directors in 2018. He tweeted in 2019 that he had quit OpenAI to focus on Tesla and SpaceX.
He also tweeted at the time, “Tesla was competing for some of the same employees as OpenAI, and I disagreed with some of what the OpenAI team wished to accomplish.”
Musk tweeted a few months ago, “What we need is TruthGPT.”

Musk claims that Larry Page once informed him of a plan to create a “digital god.”

“Last month, Musk created a new AI company called X.AI Corp, according to the state of Nevada filings. In the same month, he signed an open letter, along with hundreds of other tech experts, urging for an immediate pause of any new chatbots from OpenAI,” ZeroHedge reported.
Musk has merged Twitter into X, and his intentions to create a “everything app” may soon come to fruition. This latest revelation follows reports that Musk purchased thousands of GPUs (crucial AI development infrastructure).
Musk also disclosed to Carlson that he had halved Twitter’s valuation since his acquisition a year ago.
“We just revalued the company at less than half the acquisition price.”
Musk privatized Twitter in a $44 billion transaction. The Information recently reported that the billionaire offered employees new equity grants valued at approximately $20 billion.
Wait for it …

Musk disclosed in the same interview with Tucker that the US government had complete access to private Twitter direct messages (DMs).
He “admitted that he was surprised at the level of penetration the federal government had on Twitter, which he discovered after purchasing the social media platform.”
“The degree to which government agencies effectively had full access to everything that was going on on Twitter blew my mind,” Musk told Tucker Carlson of Fox News in an interview that will air in two separate segments on Monday and Tuesday evening.
“I was not aware of that,” Musk told Carlson. A snippet of the interview was posted to Twitter.
“Would that include people’s DMs?” Carlson asked.
Musk responded, “Yes,” without elaboration.
It was suspected that individual Twitter employees had access to private communications, but it is shocking that government agencies also had access.
Musk has collaborated with journalists to reveal the previous regime’s egregious censorship policies in the months following his acquisition of Twitter in October of last year.
