Grok debuted as a ChatGPT rival, boasting real-time knowledge and a humorous edge.
ChatGPT has a new rival: Here’s everything we know about Grok
In the rapidly evolving landscape of artificial intelligence, a new contender has stepped into the ring.
Grok, an AI designed with the spirit of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, is crafted to not only answer queries but also to provoke thought with its questions.
Standing apart with its quick wit and a hint of rebellion, Grok is geared towards those who appreciate a blend of humour with their information.
Developed by xAI, Grok is still in its beta stage, the result of two months of intensive training.
Despite its nascent state, Grok presents a unique selling point: real-time knowledge of the world accessed via the 𝕏 platform. This access allows Grok to tackle “spicy” questions, which are typically sidestepped by other AI systems.
The xAI team made it clear their mission is to develop AI that serves all humanity, transcending barriers of background and belief.
By inviting feedback on Grok, they aim to craft an AI that is universally beneficial. Grok is also intended as a research tool, poised to become a dynamic assistant to innovators and knowledge seekers.
The technical prowess of Grok stems from its engine, Grok-1, which represents the pinnacle of four months of iterative development.
Starting with Grok-0, an early prototype with 33 billion parameters, the team has advanced its capabilities to approach those of larger models while utilising fewer resources.
Grok-1 now boasts impressive scores on benchmark AI evaluations, including 63.2% on the HumanEval coding task and 73% on the MMLU, indicating significant advancements in reasoning and coding.
