Elon Musk Unveils AI Chatbot 'Grok'

Elon Musk

Elon Musk has officially introduced “Grok,” the artificially intelligent chatbot developed by his company, xAI. The billionaire techpreneur announced last Saturday, November 4, 2023, on X. Musk said the AI chatbot is being shaped to possess real-time access to data on the platform. 

Grok is designed to compete with OpenAI’s ChatGPT, the AI chatbot launched in November 2022, which caught significant public interest and attention. In developing the bot, xAI revealed in a blog post that it gathered inspiration from “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy,” the best-selling science fiction and comedy novel by British writer Douglas Adams.

xAI revealed that Grok will answer queries with a dash of rebellion and wit. Hence, Musk’s AI startup cautioned users not to employ the chatbot if they do not appreciate jokes. Furthermore, Musk disclosed on X that Grok possesses a sarcastic sense of humor. He said he is uninformed about the person responsible for this specific nature of the fledgling AI chatbot.

The Tesla CEO affirmed that Grok is still in a preliminary testing stage. However, the innovation with a ‘rebellious’ streak will soon become available to X’s Premium+ service customers. In the United States, these subscribers pay US$16 monthly for the platform’s features, like the once much-desired blue checkmark.

A large language model, or LLM, is the system utilized in educating AI applications. According to xAI’s blog post, the one underpinning Grok-1 had overtaken GPT-3.5’s capabilities on numerous measures, consisting of solving some high school mathematics problems. GPT-3.5 is the LLM educating ChatGPT’s publicly available edition. 

xAI also mentioned that the only models that had outstripped the LLM underpinning Grok-1 were those that were educated with a considerably bigger amount of computer resources and training information, such as GPT-4.

The AI startup relayed that it anticipates Grok to develop fast as X users feed it with more details. This possibility may fuel worry among social media users judgmental of Musk’s management of the platform since he acquired it last October 2022.

Musk is an OpenAI co-founder, although he left the post as chairman in 2018 partly due to divisions regarding the artificial intelligence firm’s direction. The world’s richest person has previously shared his worries about the possibility of AI technology dramatically modifying human society for the worse. He also expressed his concerns about the innovation’s pace.

Musk has referred to himself as an absolutist of free speech. The businessman and investor remarked that, under his leadership, the X social media platform would be quite unwilling to erase content and bar some users for good.
