Elon Musk's artificial intelligence startup, xAI, has unveiled "Grok," an AI chatbot that claims to outperform ChatGPT in academic tests. Musk and the xAI team aim to empower research and innovation through AI tools.

Grok's Unique Features

Grok offers a "unique and fundamental advantage" by having real-time knowledge of the world via the X platform. It can answer a variety of questions, including those with a touch of humor, making it a witty and rebellious chatbot.

Grok's Academic Performance

Grok's engine, Grok-1, performed better than ChatGPT-3.5 in several academic tests related to mathematics and coding. However, it did not outperform OpenAI's advanced version, GPT-4, in any of the tests.

Access and Pricing

Grok is available on X Premium Plus at a cost of $16 per month, but it's currently offered to a limited number of users in the United States. xAI noted that Grok is still in its early beta phase and will continue to improve over time.

Safety Measures and Ethical Use

The xAI team plans to implement safety measures to prevent malicious use of Grok, emphasizing their commitment to ensuring AI remains a force for good and contributes to society's scientific and economic value.
