Recently, Elon Musk's company, xAI, introduced an AI chatbot called 'Grok' to compete with ChatGPT, Google Bard and Bing AI. 

Musk mentioned that Grok has 'real-time knowledge of the world' via the X platform.

Unlike ChatGPT, Grok's system is designed to inject humour into its responses and can answer even unconventional or 'spicy' questions.

While Grok aims to offer a unique and entertaining experience, it must also maintain a balance between humour and practicality for various business applications.

Let's explore some differences from ChatGPT.

Grok's real-time information access gives it an advantage over popular AI tools like ChatGPT, according to Musk's tweet on the 'X' platform.

Although later versions of ChatGPT can search the internet for information, they lack Grok's real-time access, making Grok better at providing current and accurate information.

Additionally, Musk highlighted Grok's ability to deliver humorous responses without needing specific prompts, setting it apart from other large language models.

According to xAI, Grok is willing to answer ‘spicy questions’ that most other AI systems avoid.

Reportedly, Grok's development involved four months of work with multiple iterations, resulting in Grok-1, xAI's latest language model with 33 billion parameters.

Currently, Grok is in early beta and is accessible to a select group of users, with plans to make it available to all X Premium+ subscribers soon.

The Premium+ tier, priced at $16 per month or Rs 1,331 in India, offers an ad-free experience and access to all creator tools available with the Premium plan.

According to the News Bytes, xAI partnered with Oracle to train its AI model on Oracle's cloud, demonstrating the company's commitment to collaboration with industry leaders in advancing artificial intelligence.
