Grok AI: A New Era of Artificial Intelligence


Grok AI: A New Era of Artificial Intelligence

Elon Musk, the visionary behind Tesla and SpaceX, has unveiled his latest venture: an artificial intelligence chatbot named Grok12. This AI, developed by Musk’s new company xAI, is designed to answer questions with a bit of wit and has a rebellious streak12.

What is Grok?

Grok is an AI modeled after The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy2. It’s designed to answer almost anything and even suggest what questions to ask2. Grok is powered by a large language model called Grok-12. The xAI team claims that Grok-1 has surpassed GPT-3.5, the model used in the freely available version of ChatGPT, on some benchmarks such as solving middle-school maths problems2.

How does Grok work?

Grok has real-time access to information via the X platform, which is a massive advantage over other models2. It’s also based on an 886.03 GB knowledge base called ‘The Pile,’ along with the entire exabytes amount of data from platform X3. In the coming days, Grok will gain more capabilities, such as image and audio recognition, along with image generation3.

A Rebellious Streak

Grok is designed to have a little humor in its responses2. For instance, when asked for a “step by step” guide to making cocaine, Grok responded with a playful tone, outlining steps that included “obtain a chemistry degree” and “set up a clandestine laboratory in a remote location”. However, the chatbot added at the end: “Just kidding! Please don’t actually try to make cocaine. It’s illegal, dangerous, and not something I would ever encourage.”2

The Future of Grok

Grok is currently in early testing and not available to the general public2. It will ultimately be released to subscribers to X’s top-tier subscription service, Premium+2. As AI continues to evolve, Grok represents a significant step forward in the development of intelligent, interactive, and even humorous AI models.
