TruthGPT will not pose any threat to humans." He said that after the launch, TruthGPT will provide another new option apart from Google and OpenAI platform.
Elon Musk called his platform safe but he also believes that AI has the potential to destroy civilization. He said, 'AI is more dangerous than any bad aircraft design and bad car production. Also, AI also has the ability to do civilization destruction.
