This was definitely one of Tucker Carlson’s most fascinating, and scary interviews if you didn’t catch it on live TV.

On Monday evening, Elon Musk spoke with Fox News host Tucker about the threats artificial intelligence presents. In response to concerns about liberal bias in AI chatbots, he shared plans to create one that is non-woke.

Early on, Musk donated to OpenAI’s ChatGPT chatbot and expressed concerns about the direction of AI research. In his words, large-language models are being trained for political correctness.

“I came up with the name and the concept,” Musk said, bemoaning that OpenAI is now inextricably linked to Microsoft and has ceased to be a nonprofit.

Musk said that he is going to start his own AI program to go up against the one that could end the human race.

“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.”

Musk also warned that “a super intelligent AI can write incredibly well and potentially manipulate public opinions,” Reuters reported.

He tweeted over the weekend that he had met with former U.S. President Barack Obama when he was president and told him that Washington needed to “encourage AI regulation”.

Musk co-founded OpenAI in 2015, but he stepped down from the company’s board in 2018. In 2019, he tweeted that he left OpenAI because he had to focus on Tesla and SpaceX.

He also tweeted at that time that other reasons for his departure from OpenAI were, “Tesla was competing for some of the same people as OpenAI & I didn’t agree with some of what OpenAI team wanted to do.”

A few months ago, Musk tweeted, “What we need is TruthGPT.”

According to Musk, Larry Page once told him about a plan to build 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 rolled Twitter into X as his plans to create a so-called “everything app” could soon be a reality. This latest revelation comes after reports of Musk purchasing 1000s of GPUs (critical infrastructure for AI development).

Musk also told Carlson about halving the valuation of Twitter since his takeover last year: 

“We just revalued the company at less than half the acquisition price.”

Musk took Twitter private in a $44 billion deal. The Information recently said the billionaire offered employees new equity grants at around a $20 billion valuation.

In the same interview with Tucker, Musk “revealed that the US government had full access to people’s 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.

“Yes,” Musk replied without elaborating.

While it has been suspected that individual Twitter employees had access to private messages, it is shocking that branches of the federal government also had access.

In the months following his purchase of Twitter last October, Musk has worked with journalists to release files exposing the previous regime’s egregious censorship policies.

The cozy relationship between social media networks, NGOs, and the US government was described by Matt Taibbi as the “censorship-industrial complex.”

Taibbi further expounded on that assertion by saying that the system worked as “a bureaucracy willing to sacrifice factual truth in service of broader narrative objectives,” acting as an insult to the principles of a free press.

Earlier this month, Musk had Twitter label the news organization NPR as “state-run.”

According to Twitter: “Labels on state-affiliated accounts provide additional context about accounts that are controlled by certain official representatives of governments, state-affiliated media entities, and individuals associated with those entities.”

Musk quoted Twitter’s Help Center, which notes that “State-affiliated media is defined as outlets where the state exercises control over editorial content through financial resources, direct or indirect political pressures, and/or control over production and distribution.”
