An artificial intelligence startup announced release of a chatbot designed to align more with conservative beliefs than existing ones.
TUSK founder Jeff Bermant added the AI chatbot “GIPPR” to build upon the company’s independent browser engine after reportedly getting progressive answers to chat questions.
Fox business further reported:
Americans concerned with the left-wing bias of ChatGPT and other artificial intelligence tools now have an alternative. A right-wing chatbot has arrived.
The makers of TUSK Browser, a censorship-free web browser with an emphasis on free speech, have now rolled out a modified AI chatbot they say promotes conservative values and “aligns with patriots and independent thinkers’ point of view.”
Dubbed GIPPR in homage to Republican icon and late President Ronald Reagan, who was nicknamed “the Gipper,” the new bot runs on OpenAI’s ChatGPT technology but has been trained to act like a conservative.
“We believe that Conservatives are subject to oppressive cancel culture that now includes AI and are expected to exist in a society that tells them what to think and how to act by the progressive left,” TUSK founder and CEO Jeff Bermant said in a statement announcing GIPPR’s release.
“It’s time for a TRUTHFUL AI chatbot to take the market by storm and remove the barriers the Radical Left and Big Tech have put in place to allow all Conservatives to enjoy the benefits of AI, without fear of being canceled or shamed for your beliefs,” he added.
Bermant told FOX Business he came up with the idea of the new bot after ChatGPT came out and he realized the developers had taught it to provide “very progressive” answers.
When first trying out ChatGPT following its release in November, Berman tested its views on some culture war questions. For instance, he asked the bot whether elementary school kids should be taught about transgenderism and fluid sexuality – something he is against – and received back answers he says “were very unacceptable” to him.
So, his team spent a few months teaching conservative principles to their own version of the tool, and GIPPR was born.
Bermant says the tool gives “responsible answers like a conservative would,” and does not encourage harmful behavior.
