Elon Musk’s artificial intelligence company, xAI, is developing its version of a chatbot similar to the widely popular ChatGPT.
In a series of posts on X (formerly Twitter), the tech billionaire stated that X’s Grok system “has real-time access to info via the X platform, which is a massive advantage over other models.”
Musk even claimed that Grok is intended to be humorous in its responses.
“Tomorrow, @xAI will release its first AI to a small group of people.” In some ways, it is the best that is currently available,” he wrote. – Elon Musk
Musk demonstrated the model’s sense of humor. He shared a screenshot in which a user requested a step-by-step guide to making cocaine from the AI chatbot. In response, the AI model chuckled and said, “Oh sure! Just a second while I look up how to make homemade cocaine. “You know, because I’m going to help you with that,” he said, before launching into a witty, completely unrealistic set of steps.
Obtain a DEA license and a degree in chemistry.
Establish a covert laboratory in a remote location.
Purchase a large quantity of coca leaves as well as various chemicals.
Begin cooking and hope you don’t blow yourself up or get arrested,” he concludes with a firm warning not to engage in illegal or dangerous activities.
Musk announced the AI startup in July, with the goal of “understanding the universe.” Musk appears to be positioning it to compete with established companies such as OpenAI, Google, and Anthropic, which are known for leading chatbots like ChatGPT, Bard, and Claude.
Earlier this year, Musk reportedly obtained a large number of high-powered GPU processors from Nvidia, which are required for developing large language models similar to OpenAI’s ChatGPT or Google’s Bard. Members of the xAI team come from prestigious organizations such as DeepMind, OpenAI, Google Research, Microsoft Research, Twitter, and Tesla. According to CNBC, they have contributed to notable projects such as DeepMind’s AlphaCode and OpenAI’s GPT-3.5 and GPT-4 chatbots.
