xAI: A Musk-Founded Venture for Understanding the Universe
Established by Elon Musk in July of this year, the startup xAI was created with the primary aim of advancing AI technologies and aiding in a deeper understanding of the true nature of the universe. Grok, the AI chatbot, is positioned to compete with well-established chatbots such as Google’s Bard, based on PaLM 2, and Microsoft’s Bing AI.
Grok Chatbot’s Real-Time Access and Unique Characteristics
Musk highlighted that Grok enjoys real-time access to information on Platform X, providing it with a significant advantage over other AI models. He emphasized that Grok is designed with a love for sarcasm, and its responses are humor-based, not addressing questions of a sensitive nature.
Although the startup xAI and the social network X maintain separate structures, they collaborated closely, notes NIX Solutions. The xAI team also engages in collaborations with Elon Musk’s electric vehicle manufacturing company, Tesla, and other enterprises.
