Artificial Intelligence (AI) firm xAI could release Grok 1.5 update by next month, which could improve the chat experience, says the company founder.
Grok is a natural language learning AI chatbot based on a large language model (LLM). The software is designed by xAI, founded by billionaire Elon Musk to rival OpenAI’s ChatGPT.
According to the developer, Grok is an AI modeled after the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. Therefore, it can answer with “humor” unlike its competitors including ChatGPT and Google’s Bard.
Grok 1.0 is based on the Grok-1 AI Model, which is an autoregressive Transformer-based model pre-trained to conduct next-token prediction. The model was polished with feedback from beta testers and data from Grok-0 models.
xAI’s Grok was initially announced in November last year and since then the company has been testing the LLM model in a closed and public beta environment. Grok is integrated into the X social media, formerly known as Twitter. Users will require a Premium+ membership to use this capability.
Aside from the trained data, Grok takes most of its new information from X. In terms of the user interface, it’s not much of a difference between ChatGPT and Bard.
Musk wrote on X that Grok 1.5 could be out next month with “substantial improvements across the board. However, the xAI founder doesn’t reveal any feature that the new Grok version will bring for the users.
Since the software is still under early access xAI could release a large upgrade with Grok 1.5 before it could achieve stability. Still, we need to wait for an official announcement to confirm the changelog.
