The post swiftly went viral, amassing over 20.1 million views in just two days, sparking diverse opinions from online communities.
Responses to Musk’s tweet varied, with one X user affirming, “Grok understands love. Grok will care for humanity. Mark my words.” However, contrasting perspectives emerged, with some critiquing the AI’s attempt at poetry. “Shows that artificial intelligence has a long, long way to go… AI can’t do literature,” one user argued.
Grok, a brainchild of Elon Musk, serves as a direct competitor to ChatGPT, currently undergoing testing with select US users. Once the trial phase concludes, Grok is slated to roll out for all X Premium users, promising a new frontier in AI innovation.
