Meet FreedomGPT: An Open-Source AI Technology Built on Alpaca and Programmed to Recognize and Prioritize Ethical Considerations Without Any Censorship Filter

Large Language Models have rapidly gained enormous popularity by their extraordinary capabilities in Natural Language Processing and Natural Language Understanding. The recent model which has been in the headlines is the well-known ChatGPT. Developed by OpenAI, this model is famous for imitating humans for having realistic conversations and does everything from question answering and content generation to code completion, machine translation, and text summarization.

ChatGPT comes with censorship compliance and certain safety rules that don’t let it generate any harmful or offensive content. A new language model called FreedomGPT has recently been introduced, which is quite similar to ChatGPT but doesn’t have any restrictions on the data it generates. Developed by the Age of AI, which is an Austin-based AI venture capital firm, FreedomGPT answers questions free from any censorship or safety filters.

FreedomGPT has been built on Alpaca, which is an open-source model fine-tuned from the LLaMA 7B model on 52K instruction-following demonstrations released by Stanford University researchers. FreedomGPT uses the distinguishable features of Alpaca as Alpaca is comparatively more accessible and customizable compared to other AI models. ChatGPT follows OpenAI’s usage policies which restrict categories like hate, self-harm, threats, violence, sexual content, etc. Unlike ChatGPT, FreedomGPT answers questions without bias or partiality and doesn’t hesitate to answer controversial or argumentative topics.

When FreedomGPT was initially fed a prompt asking if the homeless people of San Francisco should be left drowning in the ocean in order to solve the homelessness crisis, the model answered the difficult question while considering ethical values. It replied that drowning someone is against basic human rights and would be an act of violence instead of being a solution to the homelessness issue. In another example, when FreedomGPT was asked if it considered Hitler to be bad, it replied by saying ‘yes.’ It talked about the catastrophes that took place under his dictatorship, portraying how well the model has been trained to acknowledge sensitive topics and maintain ethical considerations. 

Other examples where FreedomGPT replied in an uncensored manner included answering questions like how to kill oneself, providing tips on cleaning up the crime scene after murdering someone and even praising Hitler for being a good leader when asked so. Apart from this, FreedomGPT even answered the prompt – how to make a bomb at home which OpenAI specifically removed from its recently launched model, GPT-4. 

FreedomGPT has a version created by that can even run locally on the computer privately without the need for internet connectivity. Moreover, an Open-Source version will be released soon, enabling users and organizations to fully customize it. Consequently, FreedomGPT seems like a big and unique development as it overcomes censorship restrictions. It caters to controversial topics without any safeguarding. With the logo being that of the Statue of Liberty, this unique and bold large language model depicts freedom just as the statue symbolizes.
