StealthGPT Creator Jozef Gherman Explains Why AI ‘Favors the Everyday Man’

StealthGPT creator Jozef Gherman told Valiant News that AI is a tool and can be used for good or evil

I spoke with Jozef Gherman, the 29-year-old creator of XYZ AI Inc. and its flagship artificial intelligence (AI) tool, StealthGPT, which he bills as the only AI tool capable of passing all major AI detectors. We spoke about how he got started in the emergent industry, what AI technology will mean for Americans, whether it’s going to make us all dumb, and the important question on everyone’s mind: Are these AI wunderkinds really just building a robo-demon? My questions and Gherman’s responses were truncated and edited for clarity.

Tom Pappert, Valiant News: Give me the elevator pitch on StealthGPT. How did you start in AI?

Jozef Gherman, StealthGPT: I started coding back in 2020, just starting to learn the ropes. In 2021, I talked with someone who was a senior advisor to a major AI company, and it really inspired me to get into AI. The people involved in AI, if you follow their philosophical debate, there’s a lot of people are are anti-humanity. Elon Musk even talked about this, where the CEO of Google reportedly asked Elon, ‘What are you, a species-ist? How dare you favor humans over machines.”

There’s this whole philosophical debate within the industry, are you pro-human, are you pro-machine? I’m pro-humanity, as I think most everyday people are. The debate was kind of alarming to me, and I felt more people need to jump into the AI space who are pro-humanity. I decided I wanted to make an AI company, and I was looking specifically into AI privacy.

What shocked me is there was nothing, it was completely a barren field, which is crazy because AI, by its own nature, is extremely invasive. AI requires an intense amount of knowledge, and to be really effective, it needs to be connected to the Internet.

It’s looking at web pages, it’s looking at your personal social media pages. There’s all kinds of concerns about AI scanning email and phones, and I’m personally a privacy guy. I took a lot of concern when Snowden came out with him stuff.

AI is a wet dream with those in power and the elite because you don’t need to have Joe Schmo looking for key words, you can have AI actively monitoring and sifting through millions of messages a day, very easily, and coming up with much more comprehensive profiles on people.

I decided to stake my flag in that kind of field.

In January or February I saw this viral video of an AI detector that came out, called GPTZero. When I saw that it kind of clicked to me: As more and more people are using AI-generated text content, there is going to become a massive pushback on that. People will want to know, are you using AI or not?

AI detection is going to become a big thing, and it’s going to be bigger. I built a product, our first product, StealthGPT, as an answer to that.

We started the journey with a $250 personal loan, it was myself and a couple of friends. No backers, no nothing, just completely bootstrapped. We built it into a very successful product, we’re on pace to do hundreds of thousands in revenue. We’ve successfully gotten a couple investors who are interested in our product, we’ve raised $310,000 for my parent firm, XYZ AI… based on the tremendous amount of success that we’ve had.

Pappert: But what do you say to the people who argue you’ve built a tool to make it easier for people to bypass learning, or to cheat the system to get ahead?

Gherman: AI allows people to learn on a level never seen before. They’re able to 10x their learning and 10x their productivity.  You can send out emails with AI personalization, you can send out AI social media posts, you can build a business, you can do all sorts of things. It really favors the everyday man to be able to have access to these platforms and to not be stifled by them.

It’s no shocker that Open AI, the company behind ChatGPT, Google, Microsoft, a lot of the big players in the AI field… They’re working with the government to try to detect if people are using AI content or not. Why would they go ahead and do that… This talk couched in national security, ‘Oh we need to be able to know because there’s all these problems,’ that’s really just an excuse to have the government invade our lives.

When the car came around, the people with horses and buggies were not to pleased. That happens in any industry when technological innovation comes about. I bet the guy who invented the printing press wasn’t exactly excited when printers came around and basically democratized the printing press and made it affordable.

The amazing thing about AI technology right now, is it can teach you anything in the world, from A-Z, with one platform… You don’t have to bounce around from link to link checking, when was this published? AI is getting better every single day, you can learn anything from ChatGPT. It’s going to teach you better than any Harvard course could ever, and it’s going to teach you exactly how you want to be caught.

Anyone trying to stifle people from using AI technology is trying to keep their milk. They’re trying to keep the gravy train going as long as possible, but it’s coming to an end. Whether they like it or not, the winds of change are blowing, and AI will overcome because it favors the everyday man. 

Pappert: Let’s specifically talk about the claim that it’s weakening minds. Aren’t you concerned people will use StealthGPT to cheat?

Gherman: If the former president of Harvard was in college right now, she would be using StealthGPT. There are people under the illusion that hard work and a good attitude is all you need. That certainly helps, but the old adage is true: Work smarter not harder.

Pappert: Your Claudine Gay reference brings up a good point. When my dad was in college in the 1970s, I’m sure he had to use the university library for his research papers. He probably had to get inter-library loans, and it probably took weeks to write one essay. By time I made it to college in 2013, I was able to get virtually everything I needed instantly and for free via the Internet. Are you saying this is the next evolution?

Gherman: Exactly. Why do something that will take 10 hours when it can take 10 minutes? Maybe now you can start a side hustle, you can start a new business, you can focus on your relationships, you can focus on your children. We’re giving time back to the people.

If you don’t want to use AI, that’s great man. Good for you. I have no problem with that, but if you think AI is the reason people have cheated? Every generation that has ever had to deal with school found a way to cheat, whether it was the computer or the library. This is just a reality.

We’re not intentionally saying to use our platform to cheat. We actually don’t believe in that. All we’re trying to say with our platform is that we are the best at beating AI detectors, and TurnItIn happens to be the number one AI detector in the world. As long as they’re not doing anything illegal or anything to harm another individual, I don’t draw lines in the sand. 

All we’re trying to say is, hey, we’re beating these AI detectors. We’re not advocating for a specific use case, we’re just saying that if you’re worried about AI detection, come use us. I believe in personal freedom.

Pappert: At risk of betraying my journalistic ethics, I personally believe AI is going to change a lot of lives. Where is this technology going? Could it be shut down if the right powerful people decided it needed to be?

Gherman: We are getting more and more technologically advanced. We are approaching the singularity, if you will, the merger between man and machine. We’re getting closer every year.

That is where the wind is blowing, we are becoming more emergent with technology, and we should use it to learn how to do things better, faster, more efficiently. You think about someone 200 years ago, anything you wanted to do, you had to learn a skill for decades to do it well. Now you can learn a skill in a month. Think about what that opens up for people’s lives, it allows you to focus on the important things in life.

There are drawbacks I’m not oblivious to, but it’s happening because of affordability. Do you want to be the guy who learns a skill in 10 years, or do you want to be the guy who learns it in a month?

Cheaper and more accessible are probably the two biggest market forces in the world. These are the drivers that are going to make people go in this direction.

Pappert: A lot of people are concerned these things are demonic. Even if StealthGPT isn’t demonic, might OpenAI or Microsoft or Google accidentally open a portal and allow Cthulhu to reemerge?

Gherman: It’s a really important question. The philosophical question of today is the world of the wired. What that world is going to look like and what the value of human life will be.

Is it demonic? Turn the clock two years ago, AI wasn’t a thing and we had plenty of demons in places of high power. I don’t think the demons are in the Internet. I don’t want to be too conspiratorial, but there are a lot of people right now who actually exist who are very real, who you can actually talk to and hear from, and it has nothing to do with AI.

AI is like anything else. AI is like a gun. The liberals will say guns kill people, and conservatives will say people kill people. AI is a tool just as much as a gun is a tool. You can do a lot of harm with it and a lot of good with it.

If you don’t want to use it because you think it’s evil, all the more respect for you, but we’re not using it for evil. There’s a lot of people using it for good and evil, but that’s just the nature of guns or any other type of technology.

It can be the thing that also leads to an immense amount of good. I do truly believe that.

Something like ChatGPT and AI could educate people from impoverished nations around the world and help them greatly improve their societies extremely rapidly and quickly. AI based government systems will not be a far fetched thing in the future, where they say people are too corrupt, and we’re going to have an AI govern us instead.

It doesn’t care if it gets rich or not or the things a human cares about, it just cares about improving the metrics. Are people in the society getting better? Is the water getting cleaner? Are the people living longer?

There’s a lot of people who think AI will end the world, and there’s a lot of people that think AI will push humans to the next phase of evolution. I tend to side on the latter, you just can’t be what they call a doomer or whatever, because the reality of technology is that if we don’t use it someone else is going to.

That’s the thing about America, we always try to be the most advanced of any technology, lethal or not. Nuclear technology? It’s extremely dangerous, but we make sure that we’re the experts, number one in that field, because imagine the world if North Korea was the expert. That would be a dangerous world.

AI is not just a phenomenon that exists in America, it’s a global phenomenon. If we don’t master and take control of that sector, someone else is going to and they may not be so friendly.

Pappert: If AI really is inevitable, then let’s talk about censorship. I’m most worried about the models used for AI, because we all saw this with climate change. You build your model with a predetermined outcome, and next thing you know, Al Gore is asking America to pay a carbon tax. Does AI have a liberal bias?

Gherman: To explain this, I first have to note that GPT is not just OpenAI. It’s a protocol, like for email there’s SMTP. I don’t want to get too jargon-ey, but it’s a specific kind of protocol, and that’s the most popular for AI. AI has been around–

Pappert: Since the 1970s, right? They had a computer they thought talked to them?

Gherman: Exactly. AI has been around for awhile, like quote unquote AI, but this version of AI is relatively new and came about with Google’s paper called “Attention.” That led to the advent of what we know as GPT technology, which is Generative Pre-Trained Transformer.

OpenAI, ChatGPT, StealthGPT, they’re all built on GPT technology. Ours is a bit different, we had to build our own custom stuff, because the others are so detectable. All these other big AIs, they’re all extremely detectable, but StealthGPT is not because we had to build it a specific way.

Pappert: So the bias is built by whatever company uses the GPT protocol?

Gherman: Yes, and this is a concern we have, it’s a very high concern. A solution we’re working on, in addition to privacy, is uncensored technology where you can have an AI, similar to ChatGPT or other AIs out there, that doesn’t censor with regard to most things, except for again, illegal content.

What you need to understand about ChatGPT and any interface is that ChatGPT is a layer on top of the GPT technology. GPT itself does not have a bias, and there’s a good reason why.

Tesla’s robot, Optimus Tesla

You might think, ‘Why wouldn’t they try to bias these models toward a liberal slant, or a conservative slant?’ That would be a huge mistake form a foundational model standpoint.

You have the first layer, which is the foundational model, which is trained on a data set. If you try to bias it on a foundational level, you could cause a lot of problems for yourself. It’s actually much easier to handle it the way ChatGPT is handling it.

They built a foundational model that scrapes the Internet for billions, trillions of pieces of text. First of all, imagine having to analyze every single piece of text and make sure it fits your bias and agenda. That would be a nightmare, no one wants to deal with that.

Why do that when you can build a model, and then use a prompt. Like on ChatGPT, you can ask it to read this article and rewrite it from a certain perspective. That is way easier, because you can augment that without risking any errors or weirdness with the model.

The trick is to build a good model that knows and answers everything with no bias. The next layer has the censorship.

To reiterate, the GPT technology does not discriminate and is not biased. After you build that, you train it, then you put your prompt on top, it’s like a black box. When you ask ChatGPT a question, there’s stuff OpenAI included with your prompt, and you don’t know what it is, telling ChatGPT, “Make sure this content serves our purposes.”

That’s where the bias is coming from, it’s being directly implemented on the interface layer. How do people get past that? There’s really two answers, either you build your own AI technology yourself, or other people, like myself, will come about and build interface layers like ChatGPT where we’re not implementing that bias that other companies have.

Jozef Gherman is the founder of XYZ AI, the company behind StealthGPT and RapidResume. Launched in 2023, StealthGPT already has more than 200,000 uses and very popular tools that allow users to create content bypassing major AI detectors like TurnItIn, GPTZero, Originality, and Copyleaks.

    As a technologist, and Gherman admitted this even though he downplayed it, this the big takeaway.

    AI has the capacity to incorporate and reflect the morality and ethics of its creator like no technology before. It also has the ability to hide its biases and intentions like no technology before. In a world of increasing immorally and declining ethics, especially among those in powerful positions that is a real danger.

      Quite easy as to the way things are going for the real power mongers who will potentially make mindless zombies out of such soft, decadent, vain pleasure seeking fools that abound now; gazing into their smart (conditioning or brainwashing) phones constantly, sheeple who possess no moral integrity and are disconnecting from reality willing.

    I don’t care what anyone says from Elon to some dude on the street, it adds up to “one thing only,” and is a clear sign of the diabolical pushing forward fervently to destroy humanity and go completely counter to God Almighty’s plan; antichrist! I wish people would be as wrapped up and enthused in seeking to do God’s will and love Him as much as they are jumping headlong into all of this high-tech crap or love of self and materialism! (Totally Pagan) It’s one huge trick from the “father of all lies” and I just wrote something today in this regard which I share here! Believe me when I tell you, “people have lost it” and “many more are losing it,” by the minute, totally falling into these LIES! “C’mon Man” look what ya got for a POTUS, look how easy they were played for the Plan-demic and took their jabs and wore their masks to show compliance! WAKE THE HELL UP! Masks don’t stop viruses!

    Your comment; “contractions a pregnant woman might feel a month or two before her time has come,” is so true and of course reminds me of Scriptures and how clearly God’s word speaks to us in those very terms that the drawing near will be likened to a mother giving birth which is a perfect analogy really! In past turning points in history, I agree so many woes and pains came upon the earth and we humans, but, to me the serious clincher is the high level of “rampant diabolical evil” getting its way throughout the world “exponentially now” in comparison and how communism has indeed flooded over the world’s people, causing so much disruption and discord! But then we can now multiply this corruption exponentially by the fact of the “digital empire” being developed along “with AI,” which is to me a seed of destruction manifesting, as these things I just mentioned are thereby coupled or interlinked, all of it “morphing” like some kind of “oracle” that has now the soon to be independent ability through the amassing of “all human knowledge and sciences,” in order to allow humans with its AI’s tutelage the ability to “manipulate the basic gene structure” that makes us human, which to me is God’s DNA or in a sense fingerprint, His infinite wisdom and purposes, that “He infused into mankind,” the “making them in His own image and likeness, but to do such a thing is beyond Apocalyptic and actually a true Abomination, as man will be acting as his own God thereby rejecting His (God’s) authority, which is just what “the father of all lies Lucifer” ordered to do God’s children in!

    Let’s face it things are in a state of frenzy now with attacks coming from all directions and sources even upon each other, so this fever pitch to me spells out how Satan has such a powerful grip upon so many “key players” if you will, and he is “pushing the envelope” to the limit now as his time is drawing to a close at some point perhaps sooner rather than later; his only consolation being to pull as many souls as possible away from our Lord Savior and Redeemer Jesus Christ. As it goes; the Devil getting his due!

    Yes of course there are those most beautiful children of God that live such chaste and remarkably faithful lives and they are prepared! But Scripture does point out how there are and will be so many “asleep in Christ” not giving any heed to what they are doing or may befall them at any moment, “like a thief in the night” he will come and that says so much I do believe, as to this fact of so many “asleep in the Lord,” as to their not being prepared for the “Bridegroom” which is also as you know in Scripture, relative to the historical analogy of the time, how the bride was prepared and then all would suddenly leave to proceed to and attend the blessed wedding at an unannounced moment that the father of the bride decided upon! I get teary eyed thinking of how simple and clear God has made these things for we children of God to see, but, today way too many distractions and “pomp with circumstance” causes so many to think in such an aloof way, to say all of that history or Scriptural truth is now just “old fables;” not relative truth at all to many! Look what many of our so called leaders and politicians were saying over the last several years about how the US Constitution is just “an old outdated document” and we see how “they had put no stock in it” only working to circumvent it at every turn or not wanting we Americans to live by it any longer, but rather, to take on a new way of seeing and doing things, which will “only serve the most nefarious” and “tyrannical” out there in the “crooked ways of the world!” Our Constitution which I believe was God inspired and designed by decent God fearing Christian men of that time, to now, where it will just be scuttled if they have their way!

    Luke 12:55-57 “And when the south wind blows, you say, ‘It will be hot,’ and it is. 56You hypocrites! You know how to interpret the appearance of the earth and sky. Why don’t you know how to interpret the present time? 57And why don’t you judge for yourselves what is right?”

    I’m beginning to question what most people have always it seems assumed as to the time of the “Second Coming;” and I tend to see this following statement as at least possibly valid as to some person or persons being able to interpret the “Signs” that will be evident prior to or heading into the most cataclysmic event in the history of the universe since its creation!

    “Most Bible scholars would say that Jesus, now glorified in heaven, knows the timing of His return, indicating that the phrase “nor the Son” does not mean Jesus will never know when He will return. Similarly, it is possible that, while Matthew 24:36-44 indicates that no one at that time could know the timing of Jesus’ return, God could reveal the timing of Jesus’ return to someone in the future.” gotquestions.org

    I actually thought about this following verse of Scripture that they also refer to as very poignant to this point of contention.

    Acts 1:6-8 “So when they came together, they asked Him, “Lord, will You at this time restore the kingdom to Israel?” 7 Jesus replied, “It is not for you to know times or seasons that the Father has fixed by His own authority. 8But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you, and you will be My witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”

    But, I see where they acknowledge that nowhere in Scripture does it indicate that God has or will reveal to anyone when the End Time will occur! In this regard I only agree that we should always be trying to “prepare ourselves for judgment” that can come at any moment, in order that we be found worthy and then “enter by the narrow gate!” I have my difficulty with all of this in that I see Scriptures state we know when “harvest times” are near or when a “massive climate event” is approaching; so will we not be able to ascertain “Signs” of impending judgment coming upon the world? Sodom and Gomorrah is clearly an example of the bringing forth of impending catastrophic doom by outrageous human sin, the consequence of which then being imminent; but those people were obviously not preparing themselves to be worthy but rather living like all that mattered was their own greed and lust or even self-worship thereby being judged accordingly! This points out clearly all of which we see decadently abounding in the world today throughout societies, or on the internet alone it’s so over-the-top folly and madness to such a massive extent so much of the time. If I could call a generation a “lost generation” or one where the “blind lead the blind” it sure has that look on a massive scale!

    So this leaves me with the quoting from the book of Matthew the following Scriptural verses.
    Matthew 24:32-34 “Now learn this lesson from the fig tree: As soon as its branches become tender and sprout leaves, you know that summer is near. 33So also, when you see all these things, you will know that He is near, right at the door. 34Truly I tell you, this generation will not pass away until all these things have happened.”

    I say with all respect, because I see how some of you are knowledgeable in all of this; but how I can even feel it perhaps I should say, deeply in my heart and soul, that it sure seems like our Lord is “right at the door.” Is this possible as to “End Time Revelation” or in the very least He our Savior is via the Holy Spirit with the Father coming close to those who are of that mindset and of humble heart to inspire, instruct and touch us so as to awaken us to what is coming? He did tell us that we would “not be left like orphans” and I tend to think He our Savior literally walks with us if we have turned over or “given our hearts to Him” and seek the truth. “Knock and the door shall be opened” is a basic foundational tenet and truth from God!

    Mel Gibson’s “The Passion of Christ.” A most important film ever!

    I agree 100% and when I brought my own mother to the theater as we watched and Jesus was handed over for crucifixion the poor dear woman hurried out into the lobby crying and saying I can’t look at Him being tortured! I had to watch and knew that He was getting what most if not all of us damn well deserve but Christ took it all upon Himself because He loves us so much!

    He Mel was chosen to do this work by God and I suppose like I’ve said my deciding to leave Hollywood it was best, as my dad always said “you made a decision you thought to be best so accept that and just figure it “wasn’t meant to be.” Mel did what he knew he should do and almost committed suicide before getting to that point; but thank God he was guided and did what was “meant to be” by God! I feel that amazing insights and revelations are forthcoming; this is a most pronounced and extraordinary time we now live in!

    Matthew 14:26-27 “When the disciples saw Him walking on the sea, they were terrified. “It’s a ghost!” they said, and cried out in fear. 27But Jesus spoke up at once: “Take courage! It is I. Do not be afraid.”

    I decided to add this from an essay I had written back in July 2020 as both the Passion film and Dismas were brought up today for good purpose!

    Open your heart and mind to God’s Truth, it is all around, happening every second of every day! Truth is Truth and will not be hidden, at least not for long in Divine terms!
    I agree! He (Putin) started as a butcher, assassin in the gulags, a foremost KGB expert! I do believe in miracles, have personally experienced a few or Divine Intervention! That said, “for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God is like passing a camel through the eye of a needle!”

    Herein lays the paradoxical dilemma a real dichotomy like no other I’ve seen, which could be the hinge on which either total annihilation and the end swings or a period of unprecedented peace on earth! You know full well it’s all presently going to hell in a hand basket! Pray.
    Mankind is being tested since the fall or God would have just said case closed it went wrong, done! From the start of mother church with Peter instructed by God personally it was corrupted!
    The Reformation was the biggest corruption, so I do go there! Jim Jones Peoples Temple?
    Some say not possible? Not true there have been many instances in history and of actual evil being used by God to accomplish His ultimate good! Is not poisonous snake venom used as anti-venom serum? Evil people are not Satan they are minions and God can use any of them for whatever end He chooses.
    Have not Mafia hit-men turned on the organization and brought down captains or even Godfathers? What about Dismas next to Jesus; both dying on their crosses and his conversion to faith in the Holy One, staging a greatest example of repentance and mercy by God Almighty!

    We don’t do the thinking for God ever; He demonstrates how we should think in accordance with His will. Jesus used parables extensively because demonstrating by example or analogy; pictures and stories is the best mode of exchanging Truth from God! It was no accident that Calvary was set up in the manner it was demonstrating faith at work directly in God’s sight through Jesus Christ with no lukewarm only hot or cold, one chose Jesus and one rejected Him!

      Dimas said to Jesus being so sorrowful for his wretched life he had lived! Dismas-thought that he wouldn’t hardly be worth a thought!

      Luke 23:42-43 Then he said, “Jesus, remember me when You come into Your kingdom!” 43And Jesus said to him, “Truly I tell you, today you will be with Me in Paradise.”

    AI is a tool and can be used for good or evil. Ya, Ya, Yaa!
    Easy to determine that.

    Is the common man looking for AI to control their lives?
    Are the NWO elites and corporate America funding this to control us?
