China Bans ChatGPT For Sharing Secrets
It must be laundry day because China’s dirty laundry has been put out for display.
ChatGPT EXPOSED China and all its dirty little secrets to the world last week.
And let me tell you…
China was not too happy about it.
Here’s what was covered:
- China’s re-education camps
- Forced labor of ethnic minorities
- Human rights abuse
Yeah… definetly not a good look.
China is blaming the US for ChatGPT’s big mouth.
They say AI is being used by Americans to spread lies to their citizens.
Dun Dunnn Dunnnnn
ChatGPT is now banned in China.

This is BIG.
Almost like how when you crack your back and someone always says “whoah. That was a BIG one”.
Yeah. We’re talking back cracken’ BIG.
China is competing in the AI arm’s race...
(Their own ChatGPT release was announced last month)
But this will slow its progress wayyy down.
Think about it…
AI language models learn by talking to people and analyzing data
As of right now:
- Most people aren’t allowed to use it. That’s like trying to learn a new language without speaking it. Why bother?
- Only some topics are allowed.
- Businesses don’t have full access. Where else can it gather data?
Other A.I chats don’t have these problems. Giving them one hell of a leg up on China.
And as Ricky Bobby would say…“If you ain’t first, you’re last”
China may be taking the L on this one.
Elon Musk Creates ChatGPT Rival
Is it just me or are you up to your ears in A.I chats?
Honestly, it’s starting to remind me of the Fast and Furious series.
Not only are there too many, but they just seem to be getting crazier and crazier.
From Bing’s “I want to be human” to ChatGPT’s social score…
We may be taking a bigger byte than we can swallow.
Elon Musk certainly thinks so
Remember ladies and gentlemen, this is coming from the man who uploaded his brain to a cloud. So if he’s scared, you should be too.
Lucky for us Musk doesn’t plan to just sit back and relax as A.I takes over…
Actually quite the opposite.
Musk is building a ChatGPT rival
🚨BREAKING: Elon Musk is developing a ChatGPT competitor.
@elonmusk is reportedly forming a new AI research lab led by Igor Babuschkin @ibab_ml, a researcher who recently left Alphabet’s DeepMind AI.
The lab's primary focus will be to develop an alternative to ChatGPT.

It’s ChatGPT but with a twist
Musk hasn’t said much about it but we know it will be:
- More regulated than other AI chats. He compares AI to medicine to technology- both are great but need rules to keep people safe.
- More up-to-date info. ChatGPT is right most of the time. Musk wants one that’s right all of the time. Is it possible? If anyone can pull it off it would be him.
- Not woke. Musk hates a woke bot more than art majors hate Midjorney
The only two questions left are when and where.
Musk has started creating his AI team. Starting with Igor Babuschkin: ex employee of Google’s Deepmind. However timelines have been mentioned.
Where: We’re thinking Twitter may host the A.I chat but nothing is confirmed
Who are you rooting for in the A.I arms race?
That’s it for today folks! Stay curious, and don’t tell ChatGPT anything you don’t want the rest of the world to know (she just can’t keep a secret)!
