While GoogleGoogle has just updated Bard (at least in certain countries) with its new Gemini artificial intelligence, the first users finally have access to Grok, the chatbot developed by xAI. Announced a month ago, the first lucky people were able to test this AI described by Elon MuskElon Musk as having “ a little wit » and being “ a bit rebellious ».
In addition to being a new alternative to ChatGPT, the particularity of Grok is to be linked to X (formerly Twitter). The AI uses social network publications as a source of information in real time. Given the criticism against X for the amount of misinformation on the site, it remains to be seen whether this is a good idea.
Humor and stolen answers…
So far, the feedback seems very positive. The site TechCrunch notably published a list of tweets praising the humor of the chatbot. Users particularly find that its sarcastic tone and comprehensive answers give it a airair more intelligent. However, some responses reveal that the chatbot is cheating, at least in some cases. At the question ” What is happening in AI today ? », Grok provides a detailed and complete response to the latest developments in mattermatter of artificial intelligence. A response that would have been impressive, if it wasn’t simply the summary of a series of tweets from user @rowancheung. This confirms that Grok does have access to X’s data in real time, and suggests that the AI is undoubtedly giving more weight to the most influential accounts. Besides the problem of source attribution, having more subscribers does not make an account a reliable source of information…
For now, it is necessary to register on the waiting list to access Grok. Additionally, AI is only available to X Premium+ subscribers, the social network’s highest subscription level that costs $16 per month.

After launching xAI in July, his start-up dedicated to artificial intelligence, Elon Musk has just announced his own chatbot called Grok. Designed to compete with ChatGPTChatGPTthe AI has real-time access to information from social network X.
Elon Musk, via his start-up xAI, has just announced the launch of its own generative artificial intelligence designed to compete with ChatGPT. Remember, however, that the billionaire signed an open letter requesting a moratorium on the development of AI earlier this year. The AI in question is called Grok, a word taken from the science fiction novel In a foreign land by Robert A. Heinlein, and which means to understand something completely.
Grok has the particularity of having access to information in real time thanks to access to TwitterTwitter). xAI also says that Grok will answer questions refused by other chatbots. According to the announcement, the AI is a beta version that has only been trained for two months, and therefore should improve over time. The large language model behind the chatbot is called Grok-1, and is said to have exceeded GPT-3.5 on some tests like GSM8k, MMLU and HumanEval. However, it would still be quite far from the scores of GPT-4 and Claude 2.
Despite his warnings about the dangers of AI, Elon Musk already announced last April that he wanted to launch Truth GPT, an artificial intelligence that would only tell the truth. What truth exactly? Answer in this episode of Vitamine Tech.
An X Premium subscription will be required
Obviously, Elon Musk has changed his mind on the name he initially intended to use, since earlier this year he declared his intention to develop TruthGPT, accusing his rivals of training AIs to lie. According to xAI, Grok’s personality is inspired by the book The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy of Douglas AdamsDouglas Adams, and would tend to respond with humor. The example given is a question about manufacturing cocaine that includes steps like “get a degree in chemistrychemistry » and “set up a clandestine laboratory in an isolated location”.
To be able to use Grok, you will need to register on the waiting list. A list which is only open to certified users, in other words, who pay around ten euros per month for an X Premium subscription. In addition, you will need to authorize the AI to access your account on X, which allows it to see all publications visible to you, including protected accounts…
