Meanwhile, Mr. Mask announced the development of the AI chatbot `` TruthGPT '', which is scheduled to be a rival of ChatGPT on April 18, 2023, in an interview held at the news media FOX News . About TruthGPT, Mr. Mask says, 'It's the biggest truth-seeking AI that tries to understand the essence of the universe.'

Mr. Mask also said, ``We are an interesting part of the universe, and TruthGPT is the safest and best shortcut in the sense that AI trying to understand the essence of the universe is unlikely to be hostile to humanity.'' said.

On February 17, 2023, Mr. Mask tweeted, ``What you need is TruthGPT,'' but this ``TruthGPT'' was the name of the AI under development.

Mr. Mask criticizes OpenAI's ChatGPT, ``ChatGPT is programmed by left- wing experts and seems to lie to the chatbot.'' Tucker Carlson , who interviewed Mr. Musk, also said, 'The problem with ChatGPT is not only to enslave us autonomously, but to control our understanding of reality and force us to lie for political effect. It may be programmed,' he said.
