X's Paid Subscribers to Get Early Access to xAI's New Chatbot (Grok)

Elon Musk’s AI startup xAI seems to be ready to release their AI chatbot that will potentially compete with the likes of ChatGPT, Bard and other chatbots out there. This chatbot is going to be powered by a model called GROK. Last week, Elon Musk tweeted saying that “this is going to be released to a select group of users first”, his tweet also said “in some important respects, it is the best that currently exists”… of course, he has to say that. But if you look at the team behind xAI, I wouldn’t be surprised if this becomes the best AI chatbot available out there. I can’t wait to test it. Later, Elon Musk also added a few more details about Grok model saying that “Grok model will have real time access to the information via the X platform, which is a massive advantage over other models”. He also said it will be “unbiased, it’ll be witty, it’ll be humorous”.
