Tech mogul Elon Musk has teased the upcoming release of an upgraded version of xAI’s artificial intelligence chatbot Grok. The announcement was made on Musk’s Twitter account on March 29, following xAI’s unveiling of Grok-1.5 on their blog.

Grok-1.5 is said to feature enhanced reasoning capabilities and a context length of 128,000 tokens, marking a significant advancement from the previous version. While xAI touts improvements in coding and math-related tasks, the new chatbot still trails behind competitors like Google’s Gemini Pro 1.5 and OpenAI’s GPT-4.

According to xAI, Grok-1.5 achieved impressive scores on various benchmarks, showcasing its prowess in math problem-solving and code generation. The model’s ability to process longer and more complex prompts while maintaining accuracy is seen as a notable feat.

In a surprising move earlier this month, xAI decided to open-source the base code of Grok-1, a stark contrast to Musk’s legal battle with OpenAI, an organization he co-founded. The released code, under the Apache License 2.0, offers a glimpse into the inner workings of the AI model.

With Grok-1.5 set to be rolled out to early testers and existing users, the tech community eagerly anticipates the next level of advancement in artificial intelligence technology.
