Elon Musk has launched the AI-powered chatbot “Grok” and says it can outperform ChatGPT

Elon Musk and his AI startup xAI have released “Grok” — an AI chatbot that will supposedly outperform OpenAI’s first iteration of ChatGPT in several academic tests.

The motivation behind building Gruk is to create AI tools equipped to help humanity by enabling research and innovation, Musk and xAI to explain In a post dated November 5 (formerly Twitter).

Musk and the xAI team said Grok’s “unique and fundamental advantage” is that it has real-time knowledge of the world via the X platform.

“It will also answer interesting questions that most other AI systems reject,” Muska and xAI said. “Grok is designed to answer questions with a pinch of wit and has a rebellious streak, so please don’t use it if you hate humor!”

The Grok engine – Grok-1 – was evaluated in several academic tests in mathematics and programming, and performed better than ChatGPT-3.5 in all tests, according to data shared by xAI.

However, it did not outperform OpenAI’s most advanced version, GPT-4, in any of the tests.

“It is only surpassed by models trained using a much larger amount of training data and computational resources such as GPT-4,” Musk and xAI said. “This shows the rapid progress we are making at xAI in training LLMs with exceptional efficiency.”

The AI ​​startup noted that Grok will be available on X Premium Plus at $16 per month. But for now, it is only offered to a limited number of users in the United States.

The xAI team said they will also implement more safety measures over time to ensure Grok is not used maliciously.

“We believe that AI holds enormous potential to contribute significant scientific and economic value to society, so we will work to develop reliable safeguards against catastrophic forms of malicious use.”

“We believe in doing everything we can to ensure AI remains a force for good,” XAI added.

The launch of AI startup Grok comes eight months after Musk founded the company in March.
