Elon Musk unveils Grok, an AI chatbot with a ‘rebellious streak’

Grok, an AI chatbot with a “rebellious streak” influenced by Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, was unveiled by Elon Musk.

The ChatGPT competitor will be made available to premium subscribers on Tesla’s X platform following testing, according to the CEO, who issued a warning last week stating that AI posed “one of the biggest threats to humanity.”

Musk also disclosed that Grok frequently responds to user posts on X, which he owns, with sarcastic remarks.


Musk shared a screen grab of a question posed to the chatbot requesting a “step-by-step” tutorial on producing cocaine, which appears to be an illustration of Grok’s lighthearted tone. “Acquire a degree in chemistry” and “establish a covert laboratory in a remote location” are two of the four steps listed in the response.

But the chatbot ends by saying, “Just kidding! Do not really try to manufacture cocaine, please. It is against the law, risky, and something I would never support.”

Musk said Grok, which is in early testing and not accessible to the overall population, would eventually be delivered to supporters of X’s top-level membership administration, Premium+.

Grok is an action word begat by American sci-fi essayist Robert A. Heinlein and, as per the Collins word reference, means to “see completely and naturally”.

Grok has been worked by Musk’s new simulated intelligence organization, xAI. Staff at xAI cleared up the chatbot’s obligation for The Drifter’s Manual for the World, the clique science fiction satire by English creator Douglas Adams, in a blog entry on Saturday.

“Grok is a simulated intelligence displayed after The Drifter’s Manual for the Universe, so it is expected to answer nearly anything and, far harder, even propose what inquiries to pose!

“Grok is intended to respond to inquiries with a touch of mind and has an insubordinate streak, so kindly don’t utilize it on the off chance that you can’t stand humor!”

The xAI group said Grok was fueled by an enormous language model — the central innovation behind man-made intelligence chatbots — called Grok-1.

The blog entry said Grok-1 had outperformed GPT-3.5, the model utilized in the unreservedly accessible adaptation of ChatGPT, on certain benchmarks, like tackling center school numerical questions. Notwithstanding, xAI said it falled behind the most remarkable ChatGPT model, GPT-4.

“It is just outperformed by models that were prepared with an essentially bigger measure of preparing information and PC assets, as GPT-4.”

The xAI group said Grok was being made accessible to a set number of clients in the US as a model, adding that “new capacities and elements” would be carried out before long. As indicated by the Grok site, introductory admittance to the chatbot is being proposed to X endorsers under an “early access program”.

Musk helped to establish OpenAI, the organization behind ChatGPT, yet backed away from the organization in 2018, saying he “disagreed with some of what the OpenAI group needed to do”, as well as refering to responsibilities at his different organizations. Musk has communicated fears about the speed of improvement at organizations like OpenAI, and in Spring he upheld a require a six-month stop in growing strong frameworks.

Be that as it may, in July Musk said a delay as of now not appeared to be practical and declared the development of xAI, which he said would fabricate simulated intelligence frameworks “positively”.

Talking at the simulated intelligence security culmination at Bletchley Park last week, Musk said artificial intelligence was a danger to mankind, repeating fears among certain specialists and tech chiefs that frameworks could arise that sidestep human control and go with choices that risk mankind.

“At the end of the day, interestingly, we have what is happening where there’s something going to be far more intelligent than the most brilliant human,” he said.

Musk then, at that point, anticipated on Thursday that man-made intelligence – the term for PC frameworks that can perform assignments ordinarily connected with keen creatures – would supplant every human work. Addressing the state leader, Rishi Sunak, he said: ” There will come where no occupation is required.”
