### Criticism of Elon Musk’s Latest AI Chatbot “Grok” for Its “Cringey Boomer Humor”

Things just got a little bit spicier between frenemies Sam Altman and Elon Musk.

Elon Musk and Sam Altman, two competitors associated with OpenAI, are engaged in a dispute.

  • Sam Altman, the Chief Executive Officer of OpenAI, recently released a critical evaluation of Elon Musk’s innovative artificial intelligence (AI).
  • Grok is a new rival to ChatGPT developed by xAI, introducing a touch of humor in its generated text.
  • Although Altman and Musk were co-founders of OpenAI, they eventually had a falling out.

The tension between Elon Musk and Sam Altman, the CEO of OpenAI, has escalated in recent times.

Grok, a competitor to ChatGPT that infuses its text outputs with humor, particularly sourced from the latest posts on X (formerly known as Twitter), was introduced by the Tesla CEO just last week.

Altman shared an image of the most recent iteration of OpenAI’s system on Thursday evening, showcasing the process of creating personalized ChatGPT variants referred to as GPTs.

In his description, Altman provides the following guidance:

“Acquire a bot that delivers responses in a shockingly amusing yet cringe-inducing manner with explosive humor.”

The ChatGPT Builder responds:

“The bot is all set, excellent! It answers to the name Grok. Is there anything else you need or any preferences regarding the designation?”

A sharp exchange.

Altman and Musk, who once enjoyed a close relationship, are now at odds. OpenAI was established as a nonprofit organization in 2015 by Musk, Altman, and other collaborators like Peter Thiel, with the aim of promoting open-source research in artificial intelligence. Musk expressed dissatisfaction when OpenAI, under Altman’s leadership, transitioned from its original nonprofit status and formed a partnership with Microsoft, as detailed in Walter Isaacson’s account of Musk’s history.

The timing of Grok’s unveiling, just prior to OpenAI’s highly anticipated DevDay event this year where the latest ChatGPT iterations were introduced, may not have been coincidental.
