Amidst the escalating rivalry in the tech world over artificial intelligence, Sam Altman, the mind behind ChatGPT, playfully teases Elon Musk’s latest AI chatbot, Grok, in a social media exchange

Currently dominating as the world’s most popular AI chatbot, ChatGPT faces a new contender in Elon Musk’s recently introduced AI chatbot, Grok. However, the brain behind ChatGPT, Sam Altman, seems less than thrilled with Musk’s creation. Taking to the social media platform X (formerly Twitter), Altman playfully teased Musk, expressing his dissatisfaction with Grok’s entry into the AI chatbot scene.

The friendly banter unfolded after Altman showcased ChatGPT’s latest feature, allowing users to create their own AI chatbots. Altman, seizing the opportunity, challenged ChatGPT to be a chatbot that delivers cringey boomer humor in an awkward, shock-to-get-laughs manner. The response from ChatGPT? A virtual mic drop moment, setting up a chatbot named Grok and cheekily asking Altman how he liked the name.

The intensifying rivalry in the tech world over artificial intelligence has been gaining momentum since the emergence of OpenAI’s ChatGPT a year ago. Major players like Microsoft, Google, Meta, and startups such as Anthropic and Stability AI are engaged in a fierce race to develop the most intelligent tech.

Elon Musk, a co-founder of OpenAI in 2015, initially expressed reservations about Google’s deep dive into AI, deeming it reckless. By 2018, Musk shifted his focus to Tesla, citing dissatisfaction with the financial direction of OpenAI under Altman’s leadership. Musk, never one to shy away from a challenge, recently launched his own AI chatbot, Grok, with the aim of injecting humor into AI interactions.

As Altman and Musk engage in playful banter online, the tech community eagerly anticipates the witty exchanges between these AI chatbots, GPTs, and Grok. The unfolding scenario resembles a high-tech duel, providing spectators with a front-row seat to witness the clever and amusing responses these AI entities will generate in the ongoing showdown.
