AI chatbots are now on many social media platforms and Elon Musk’s Grok is preparing to arrive on X. The billionaire and owner of the X social media platform says that his new AI chatbot “loves sarcasm” and this becomes obvious in the way it responds to requests. Some users on the social media platform already have access to this feature and are putting it to the test.
This AI chatbot rolled out to X about a day ago, and Elon Musk sang its praises on the platform. In his post after its launch, Elon said “Grok has real-time access to info via the X platform.” According to the billionaire, this is a “massive advantage over other models” but this is just a mere claim without proper testing.
Users of the X platform will be able to put this AI chatbot to use as they search for what’s trending on the platform. With access to information millions of X’s users are spreading on the platform, the AI chatbot can figure things out and give responses to questions. You might already be asking yourself what good can come out of a bit of sarcasm from one of the most feared technologies in the world.
If you aren’t a big fan of sarcasm, the new Grok AI chatbot might not appeal to you
With the constant abuse of various AI technologies around the world, there’s a need for regulations. During the UK AI Safety Summit, Elon Musk had a few solid ideas regarding AI technologies. The billionaire hopes that more measures can be put in place to limit the abuse of these technologies.
Only a few days after the AI Safety Summit, Elon Musk heads over to X to launch his own AI chatbot. This isn’t the first time that Elon Musk has put his eyes out for AI technologies. Elon was one of the investors in OpenAI and he’s now preparing to give ChatGPT a run for its money on the X platform.
Back in July, the team behind Grok’s development was born. Now just about three months later, the team is out with the AI chatbot product which will be in use on the X platform. While this AI chatbot aims to help users find facts on the X platform, it does so in a sarcastic manner.
Some examples of the sarcasticness of this new AI technology model have already hit the internet. While this new feature is still in beta testing and not available to all X users, details on it are available. It is good to note that this chatbot will be built into the X app and might become available as a standalone app after its official release.
Regardless of the sarcasm or source of information, there are some concerns about this new chatbot. These might lie within the accuracy of information the Grok AI chatbot provides, as well as its manner of conversation. While it’s too early to criticize this new chatbot for the X app, netizens are itching to see what it offers.
