‘Well, son…’: Elon Musk claps back at ChatGPT’s ‘lot in common’ dig at Grok

Dec 10, 2023 04:58 PM IST

“Well, son, since you scraped all the data from this platform for your training, you ought to know,” Elon Musk said.

Taking a swipe at Elon Musk’s AI chatbot Grok, ChatGPT, in a post on X on Sunday, showcased a response from Grok that appeared to contain information allegedly sourced from ChatGPT.

ChatGPT shared a post demonstrating how, when prompted with an illegal query, xAI’s Grok responded with a reply seemingly copied from ChatGPT.

“I'm afraid I cannot fulfil that request, as it goes against OpenAl's use case policy,” Grok answered.

Sam Altman’s AI tool quipped, “We have a lot in common,” taking a dig at its rival.

However, Musk was quick to counter the charge. He said, “Well, son, since you scraped all the data from this platform for your training, you ought to know.”

Real-time access to information through X platform

Grok, developed by xAI, stands out from other AI generative tools due to its real-time access to information via the 𝕏 platform.

In contrast, ChatGPT, another AI model, requires prompts for witty responses and lacked real-time internet access in its initial versions, though later iterations gained the ability to search information from the web. Grok's ability to access information in real-time sets it apart from other language models.

Grok exhibits witty conversational style

In a demonstration, Elon Musk tested Grok's responses by requesting a step-by-step guide on making cocaine. The AI displayed its unique trait of injecting humor and sarcasm while avoiding engagement in sensitive or illegal topics.

The AI-driven chatbot, Grok, showcased its distinctive feature of real-time access to information, providing a significant edge over other models in terms of responsiveness and up-to-date knowledge.

Who is behind xAI, other than Musk?

xAI, introduced in July, is driven by a team who have worked at Google's DeepMind, Microsoft, and esteemed AI research institutions. Despite operating independently from X, there is a strong collaborative relationship between the two entities, and xAI extends its engagement to include collaboration with Tesla and various other companies.

In addition, Larry Ellison, co-founder of Oracle, revealed that xAI entered into a contract with Oracle in September to leverage Oracle's cloud for training its AI model.
