Elon Musk has made a startling revelation about the left-leaning bias of the tech industry. He claims that AI programs funded by him are being taken over by left-wing programmers who are training them to introduce bias and falsehoods into their responses to users. During an interview with Tucker Carlson on Fox News, Musk expressed concerns about the dangers posed by AI, which he believes have the potential to cause catastrophic damage to civilization.
Should be a very interesting interview👀 https://t.co/lWbtUra5US

He argues that the actions of these leftists, who are manipulating information and teaching AIs to selectively comment on certain topics, are symptomatic of a wider moral decay in society. Musk views the issue of AI as far more serious than other technical problems, such as poor car production or manufacturing maintenance.

Elon Musk has been expressing concerns about the potential risks associated with AI for some time now. Recently, he co-signed a letter with more than 1,000 other tech leaders, urging a six-month halt in the development of AI to establish ethical standards for systems that could potentially displace human workers with automated content production.
It is alarming to note that some left-leaning programmers are using AI to advance their political ideology. For instance, there have been instances where the widely used ChatGPT bot has been manipulated by these programmers to praise President Joe Biden while ignoring former President Donald Trump. This is a clear indication that AI is being leveraged to propagate leftist propaganda while simultaneously silencing conservative voices.
It is time to take a stand against this leftist bias in the tech industry. The National Institute of Standards and Technology has recommended policing AI with monitoring systems to reduce biases that may be purposefully or subconsciously introduced by their human creators. This is a good start, but more action is needed. We need to demand that tech companies take responsibility for the products they produce and ensure that they are free from political bias.
