Persuasive Intent
Elon Musk is interviewed by conservative Fox News' Tucker Carlson and discusses the origins of OpenAI, the politics of "truth", and the future of AI and humanity. He poses the questions: "will humanity control its destiny or not? Will we have a future that is better than the past or not?"

Speaking about OpenAI's ChatGPT, he states that "I'm worried about the fact that it's being trained to be politically correct, which is simply another way of saying untruthful things" and that training an AI to be deceptive "is certainly a path to AI dystopia". He then claims that he's going to start a competitor called TruthGPT, "a maximum truth-seeking AI that tries to understand the nature of the universe".
