Tesla CEO Elon Musk has launched his own AI chatbot to counter ChatGPT.
The Grok chatbot is designed to challenge industry heavyweights like OpenAI, Google, and Meta.
Grok leverages real-time access to data from X, a social media platform acquired by Musk for $44 billion a year ago.
Sarcasm & Humor
Musk said Grok can sprinkle sarcasm and humour, aiming to differentiate it in a competitive market.
The new chatbot will be less formal and more personal, giving Grok a real personality.
The chatbot can even tackle edgy questions that other AI systems might shy away from, according to xAI.
Chatbot Available to Premium+ Users
Grok will be available for testing by X users exclusively through the app’s “Premium+” service, Elon Musk said.
Testing will cost $16 to test the newly developed chatbot.
AI chatbots have become a field of competition for tech giants recently, raising concerns about humanity’s losing grip over it.
