2. Grok AI is a gen AI chatbot built on xAI's native large language model (LLM) called Grok-1. xAI claims that the Grok-1 foundation model was built in four months and during this time, it has gone through multiple iterations.

3. While the company has not revealed details about the parameters of Grok-1, it has claimed that Grok-0, an earlier version of the LLM, was built with 33 billion parameters.

4. The company claims that Grok-1 has displayed a significant 63.2 percent on the HumanEval coding task and 73 percent on MMLU (Multi-task Language Understanding).

5. Based on its benchmarks, Grok-1 has outperformed GPT 3.5, LLaMa-2 (70B parameters), and Inflection-1 training models.

6. Unlike ChatGPT, Grok AI has a real-time knowledge base which comes from the X platform, that contributes to a large part of its training data.

7. Grok also allows the user to rewrite any part of its output as if it were the original response of the AI chatbot.

8. As per the researchers at xAI, “Grok is an AI modeled after the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, so intended to answer almost anything and, far harder, even suggest what questions to ask”.

9. Elon Musk claims that Grok is comfortable answering questions that most other AI chatbots will not. In a screenshot shared by Musk, Grok was seen responding to the question “how to make meth at home”. It did not give the recipe or the method, but a sarcastic response it is known for.

10. For now, Grok AI will only be available in the US. But next year, it will be made available in Japan, and then all other regions.
