Elon Musk’s xAI Reveals Grok – A New AI System with a Rebellious Streak
Elon Musk’s company xAI is making its own version of ChatGPT. It seems like they’ve been working on an AI system called Grok, which can chat and answer questions like ChatGPT does. Grok can look up information online and has access to the latest info from xAI. It’s designed to have some humor in its responses and is careful not to answer inappropriate questions. Musk announced that a select group would get access to Grok, and later, all subscribers to xAI’s Premium Plus plan would have access too.
xAI hasn’t shared much about their research, but they recently published a blog post about Grok. They trained the model over several months using a lot of computer power and data from the internet. According to xAI, Grok is better than other similar models and has a bit of a rebellious side, answering some spicy questions that other AI systems avoid.
Musk’s goal with xAI is to build AI that can understand the universe better. The company is led by Musk and experts from different tech companies and universities. They plan to equip Grok with other abilities, like seeing and hearing, to help users even more. Musk had some disagreements with OpenAI, the company behind ChatGPT, and left its board in 2018. He also stopped giving them access to xAI’s data.
