New Delhi: Elon Musk’s cutting-edge AI startup, xAI, seems to be brewing something big in the world of artificial intelligence. Musk dropped some tantalizing hints in his late Friday tweets about a new AI model they’ve been quietly crafting called “Grok.” This intriguing creation appears to be ChatGPT’s close cousin, potentially harnessing a knowledge base akin to the one that trained ChatGPT and Meta’s Llama 2.
Grok stands out by offering “real-time access” to information about all things X, and, like its counterpart ChatGPT, it boasts internet browsing capabilities, allowing it to fetch fresh and relevant data from the vast web.
Earlier in 2023, Musk, a vocal critic of Big Tech’s AI initiatives and censorship, teased a game-changer – a maximum truth-seeking AI designed to unlock the universe’s secrets, posing a formidable challenge to Google’s Bard and Microsoft’s Bing AI.
What makes this story even more intriguing is the star-studded team behind xAI, featuring talent from the likes of Google’s DeepMind and the Windows parent company, as well as other top AI research giants. The fusion of such expertise can only lead to groundbreaking innovations.
But that’s not all; X and xAI may be separate entities, but they work in harmony. Furthermore, xAI, introduced in July of this year, is already making waves, collaborating with the likes of Tesla and other industry heavyweights.
The buzz doesn’t stop there, as the end of the year brings news of a high-profile rendezvous between Musk and British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak, who are set to delve into the challenges posed by artificial intelligence. This exclusive tête-à-tête is slated to take place on Musk’s very own X, formerly known as Twitter, following the AI safety summit that wrapped up on November 2.
The AI Safety Summit, held on November 1 and 2, had a pivotal mission: to unravel the complexities of AI’s risks and lay the foundation for international consensus on its secure evolution. With all these exciting developments on the horizon, the world of AI is set for a thrilling ride into the future.
