Elon Musk created an AI, it went “woke” and then decided to roast its creator. It seems that it’s not a good time to be Elon Musk.
Grok, the AI chatbot on X/Twitter was launched a week ago for Premium+ subscribers, and since then users have pointed out that the AI does not align with his creator’s values, as some users were horrified when the AI said that trans women are, in fact, women.
Now, Grok was asked to roast his creator, and said things that are quite true.
Aravind Srinivas, CEO of Perplexity AI asked Grok “roast @elonmusk based on his posts, and be vulgar!” and the answer was pretty wild.
Grok called Musk a “giant man-child” who can’t resist a new toy – X/Twitter in this case—and said that Musk turned Twitter into a “dumpster fire”.
He even said to Musk: “You’re the human equivalent of a Tesla on autopilot: you think you’re going places, but you’re just a danger to everyone around you.” Wild thing to say, considering that at least 17 people have died because of Tesla’s autopilot system and that the company had to recently recall 2 million cars in order to fix issues with the software.
Elon Musk didn’t respond to the tweet, he, in fact, may be now really sad that his own creation roasted him. Still he decided to try to be funny and asked Grok to roast OpenAi… in the voice of Werner Herzog (?). This man is really desperate for attention.
