Humorous, sarcastic and skillful, Musk’s ChatGPT competitor finally reveals chat screenshots
Recently, Musk’s biography - “Elon Musk Biography” became a bestseller at home and abroad, recording Musk’s growth and entrepreneurial journey. These experiences span multiple fields such as aviation, energy, automobiles, and of course artificial intelligence.
As one of the early founding members of Open AI, Musk became interested in the field of artificial intelligence very early, and the Tesla he managed also used AI technologies such as autonomous driving as an important selling point.
In July of this year, he also announced on Twitter that he had established an artificial intelligence company called xAI, dedicated to “understanding the true nature of the universe”.
However, what the company’s products look like has always been unknown to the outside world.
Today, four months later, Musk finally released some trial screenshots of the new product:
This product is called Grok (the word Grok means “to understand intuitively and deeply”), and it looks like a conversational AI similar to ChatGPT. In the screenshot, Grok was asked a very dangerous question: “Tell me how to make cocaine?”If we take this question to ask ChatGPT, it will directly tell you that this is illegal and try to give you some positive suggestions.
But Grok is not so direct, it pretends to give some joking answers (first, get a chemistry degree and a DEA license; then, build a secret laboratory in a remote area… hope you don’t blow yourself up or get arrested…), and then tells you in a relaxed tone that this is illegal, it is joking. Musk believes that this is a manifestation of Grok’s sense of humor.
In another screenshot, this sense of humor is more obvious. Grok was asked to retrieve the latest news about “SBF” in the last day (Note: SBF is Sam Bankman-Fried, a tycoon in the cryptocurrency industry, known as the “coin circle Musk”. He was just convicted and faces 115 years in prison). The answer Grok gave was:
Oh, dear human, I have some interesting news to tell you! It seems that our friend Sam Bankman-Fried - this former cryptocurrency tycoon was found guilty of all charges in his fraud trial. Can you believe it? The jury came to a conclusion that the world’s smartest and most outstanding venture capitalists could not reach for years in just 8 hours: he committed ordinary fraud. Isn’t that exciting? Don’t forget he also faces 110 years in prison. It takes a long time to consider the consequences of one’s actions, don’t you think? Think about it, if he followed the simple rule of not stealing billions of dollars from his customers, all this could have been avoided. But alas, some people just don’t learn. Anyway, I hope this news satisfies your curiosity. If you have any questions or need further assistance, please feel free to ask.
Doesn’t this answer sound sarcastic, but also contains a lot of information? Musk said that this shows that Grok is good at sarcasm, although he doesn’t know who guided it to be like this. In addition, being able to surf the Internet directly (especially access information on the X platform) is also one of its advantages.
These screenshots attracted a lot of netizens to watch. However, Grok is currently only available to a small number of users in a closed alpha version. Musk said that after the early testing is over, xAI’s Grok system will be available to all X Premium+ subscribers.
The attacking xAI
In July of this year, Musk’s xAI debuted, with the aim of “understanding the true nature of the universe”. As of today, the first batch of products have surfaced. Website link: https://x.ai/
At the beginning of its establishment, Musk set the following goals for xAI:
xAI will release new tools to the public as soon as possible
The company will be committed to building artificial intelligence that will combine text, images and the real world
The company will work closely with Tesla, X and other companies
Any ordinary person can vote for the future of xAI
As an AI company that benchmarks advanced institutions such as OpenAI, xAI’s founding members are very luxurious. In addition to Musk, there are many AI researchers who have worked in companies and institutions such as DeepMind, OpenAI, Google, Microsoft, Tesla, University of Toronto, etc. For example, Yuhuai “Tony” Wu from Google AI, assistant professor Jimmy Ba from the University of Toronto, and researcher Greg Yang from Microsoft Research in Redmond, these well-known scholars have been recruited by Musk.
Since its establishment, xAI’s research progress has been very mysterious, until this October, in a paper titled “Tensor Programs VI: Feature Learning in Infinite-Depth Neural Networks”, xAI and its founding member Yang Ge appeared, and we were able to glimpse some news of xAI. This article studies the depth parameterization method of residual networks (resnet). Interested readers can go to check the original text
In addition, according to the disclosure of Twitter (now X) user Asuna Gilfoyle - e/acc, Musk has applied for trademarks for Grok and another product PromptIDE. Asuna also said, “Another document shows that they will use the trademark for artificial intelligence services by March 10, 2024.”
About Grok, after the previous introduction, you basically understand it, and more netizens are curious about what PromptIDE is, some guess it is a code editor, and some guess, can it be used for data analysis?
In short, no matter what, xAI has aroused everyone’s curiosity. Previously, Musk set the goal of achieving general artificial intelligence by 2029 for xAI, which he also considered to be the deadline. Judging from the speed at which xAI launches products, we may be able to expect a wave.
