Elon Musk’s artificial intelligence startup xAI will merge with X after launching the rebellious Grok Chatbot
Elon Musk’s artificial intelligence startup xAI will be integrated with his social platform and ambitious everything app cold.
Musk said on Friday that xAI is preparing to unveil its first artificial intelligence model with the aim of competing with industry leaders such as Google, OpenAI and the famous AI-powered chatbots Bard and ChatGPT. The robot, called Grok and modeled after the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, was launched as a “very early beta product” to paid X subscribers the next day. xAI said Grok is “designed to answer questions with a bit of wit and has a rebellious streak” and encouraged users to stay away if they “hate humor”. Musk said the Grok bot has a “huge advantage” over other AI models like ChatGPT because it has “real-time access” to the X platform. While the companies share similar names — the letter “x” is common in Musk’s work — they share In the leader, they remain distinct entities. xAI said on its website that it is separate from X Corp — Musk’s company that legally rebranded Twitter earlier this year — but will “work closely with X (Twitter), Tesla, and other companies to make progress toward our mission.”
Grok’s debut comes just months after Musk announced the launch of xAI in July — just months after its creation — with a mission to “understand the true nature of the universe.” Pointing to the company’s rapid progress, Musk said xAI computing is “doubling every two to three months.”
$230.9 billion. This is how much Forbes Musk’s net worth estimates, which puts him at the top of our list of the richest people in the world. Much of Musk’s wealth comes from a host of valuable companies he helped found, including automaker Tesla, aerospace company SpaceX, brain-computer interfaces company Neuralink, and traffic hacking company The Boring Company. He was a co-founder and early backer of ChatGPT creator OpenAI when it launched in 2015 but folded in 2018, after a failed takeover attempt.
