Here’s Claude AI’s lightly edited summary:
Elon never fails to keep things entertaining in AI land! This time he’s unveiled Grok, a chatbot trained on the treasure trove of truth and wisdom that is…Twitter? Experts are skeptical that a Twitter-trained bot could be reliable and avoid harmful output. How long before Grok turns into a snarky troll itself under the influence of its alt-fact training data and with fact-resistant Elon at the helm?
Using the corpus of X posts as training data sounds like a good idea—until you look at the tone of conversation on the social platform.
Just four months after launching xAI, Elon Musk’s AI company has its first product.
Grok was launched in beta overnight, with Musk promising a personality- and humor-filled chatbot that’s been, in part, trained on the vast volumes of user data on X, the platform formerly known as Twitter.
