Date: November 6, 2023. — Elon Musk has revealed Grok, a new chatbot developed by his AI business xAI. Grok is available to all X Premium+ users who pay $16 per month for premium services including the blue checkmark. Grok undergoes training by accessing real-time information from X postings. Moreover, this provides it with a one-of-a-kind and up-to-date understanding of the world. Users can ask Grok anything, from high school math difficulties to the meaning of life. It will respond in a hilarious and occasionally defiant manner.
OpenAI published ChatGPT, an AI chatbot, last year. Musk is an OpenAI co-founder who quit the firm in 2018 owing to differences about its direction. According to xAI, Grok-1, the first version of the chatbot, outperformed GPT-3.5, the publicly accessible version of ChatGPT, on a variety of metrics, including answering certain high school math problems. Only GPT-4, which requires substantially more data and compute resources, outperforms Grok-1.
Grok expects to improve swiftly as X users send more information into it. This may cause some anxiety among those who have criticized Musk’s handling of the platform since he purchased it last year. Musk has described himself as a “free speech absolutist.” He stated that he would be extremely hesitant to delete information or restrict people. He just reactivated the account of Tommy Robinson, a British far-right politician with a history of publishing Islamophobic content on X, after a five-year ban.
Grok has the potential to become the standard for AI-driven conversational bots, putting xAI at the forefront of the AI market with its sophisticated language comprehension and flexibility. Moreover, the wider effects of Grok’s launch are expected to change how people interact with intelligent machines as technology develops, opening the door to a more seamless and intuitive future.
