Elon Musk recently demonstrated a chatbot called Grok AI, which is supposed to be witty. The level of jokes is not very high, as ChatGPT co-author Sam Altman commented. The discussion escalated into a teasing war.
The owner of Twitter (X.com), Elon Musk, recently posted on the platform a prototype of Grok AI, a new chatbot that should answer questions from Internet users in a humorous manner. His opponent made a sarcastic comment.
The creator of ChatGPT criticized the AI Grok – Musk is furious
The head of OpenAI, the company responsible for ChatGPT, Sam Altman, made a direct attack on Musk’s project. He posted a revealing entry on Twitter. He asked the company’s new tool, GPT Builder, to “create a new chatbot that answers questions with embarrassing hackers and tries to make users laugh by shocking them.”
The service, designed to create GPT-based chatbots, happily responded that it had just created a helper named Grok. His description was: “I tell jokes that would put your father’s father to shame.”
The open criticism must have angered Musk a little. The richest man replied: “GPT-4? More like GPT snoring!” It’s a high school-level “I guess so” answer, although coming from a 52-year-old billionaire, it’s not surprising. He also added that “from a humor standpoint, GPT-4 is about as funny as a glass door on a submarine.” Grok, of course, was not ashamed of this display of paternal humor – perhaps a reference to the Titan disaster.
Sam Altman vs. Elon Musk – businessmen are at odds with AI
It’s no secret that Altman and Musk don’t really like each other. Two rich men had been at enmity with each other for a long time. Interestingly, many years ago they launched a joint project on artificial intelligence.
Elon Musk and Sam Altman were among the key founders and investors of the OpenAI artificial intelligence laboratory. In 2015 it was still a non-profit organization, but it had been working on GPT language models since the beginning. Other members of the organization included: Peter Thiel, Greg Brockman, Reid Hoffman, Jessica Livingston and Amazon Web Services.
Musk left the company’s board in 2018, reportedly frustrated by slow progress in building artificial intelligence models and Altman’s different vision for the future. However, the owner of Tesla and Twitter did not abandon the company in subsequent years, regularly criticizing its subsequent actions. For example, he said that OpenAI is “not far from dangerously powerful artificial intelligence” and hinted that the company’s product could even turn against people.
