Elon Musk's artificial intelligence startup, xAI, has launched a new chatbot called Grok to rival Microsoft's ChatGPT. Despite this development, it is unlikely to pose a significant threat to Microsoft, as they still maintain a considerable lead in the AI race.
When compared to the established ChatGPT, developed by OpenAI (an investment of Microsoft), Grok seems to be joining the chatbot race rather late. ChatGPT was launched almost a year ago, generating tremendous excitement around AI and contributing to a rally in technology stocks.
xAI admitted in their announcement that Grok's AI model is not as powerful as those trained with more extensive data and computing capabilities, such as OpenAI's GPT-4, which was released in March of this year. It's worth noting that xAI itself was only launched in July and is now part of Elon Musk's impressive lineup of companies, which includes Tesla (TSLA), SpaceX, and X.
Despite the acknowledged limitations, Musk believes that Grok has a couple of secret weapons up its sleeve. Firstly, it promises to provide answers with a touch of wit and has a rebellious streak that sets it apart from other chatbots.
"Grok is designed to answer questions with a bit of wit and has a rebellious streak... It will also answer spicy questions that are rejected by most other AI systems," xAI stated confidently.
With the introduction of Grok, xAI aims to make its mark in the competitive world of AI-powered chatbots while appealing to users seeking a more unique and entertaining experience.
