Virtual World Computing, LLC, the developer of the free-speech browser TUSK, has announced the launch of Gippr, a chatbot powered by generative AI capable of providing answers that align with conservative values. The chatbot is integrated into the TUSK search engine, which can be accessed using any web browser.

In August, the Washington Post reported the findings of a study conducted by a team of researchers in the UK, showing that ChatGPT has a liberal bias. According to the researchers, there is “robust evidence” that the generative AI has exhibited a “significant and systematic political bias” toward groups like the Democrats.
“This is a worrying trend,” a spokesperson from Virtual World Computing said. “All indicators point to the unimpeded rise in the use of generative AI tools globally, and yet users are unaware that the answers they are getting, particularly in matters pertaining to politics, are representing only one side.”
“Gippr is our way of helping users form more informed opinions by presenting to them a side of the political landscape that will never be discussed fairly by these popular tools,” they added.
Much like the TUSK browser, Gippr is the result of extensive modifications to existing language models, enabling it to offer responses based on conservative values and beliefs. Part of the modifications made by Virtual World Computing is removing any means of collecting personal data or tracking users.
Gippr can be accessed through the TUSK browser, which can be downloaded for free on both Android and iOS. It can also be accessed via any web browser by visiting https://tusksearch.com/
The TUSK project, which now includes a browser, search engine, and chatbot, is the brainchild of entrepreneur and free speech advocate Jeff Bermant. No stranger to issues pertaining to internet privacy and censorship, Mr. Bermant’s first foray into censorship-free web browsing was with the Cocoon Browser, a private browser he launched in 2019.
