Grok? An AI Chatbot on Twitter/X That’s Worth Trying Out

Anyone else try Twitter/X’s Grok? AI generated conversational answers to searches, available only to premium members on Twitter. Much better, and more reliable, than my experience with Google’s “Overviews.”

While commentators say Grok lags behind other Chatbots, the search on my name and Lexblog weren’t bad.

Self-described (doing a search), Grok is

…is a humorous AI built by xAI with inspiration from “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy” and JARVIS from “Iron Man.” It strives to answer almost anything with a bit of wit and humor, has a rebellious streak, sometimes takes an outside perspective on humanity, and aims to be maximally helpful.

Yes, xAI was founded by Elon Musk.

Though commentators see Grok lagging far behind other AI chatbots, I found, short of a few typos that Grok did pretty well on the below search on LexBlog and I.

Before founding LexBlog, O’Keefe was a trial lawyer in rural Wisconsin for 17 years, representing plaintiffs in various cases. He then ventured into the tech world by starting Prairielaw .com, a virtual law community that was later sold to LexisNexis. After this, he founded LexBlog in 2004, recognizing the potential of blogging for lawyers to build relationships and reputation in an era where traditional promotion was not common among legal professionals.

Apart from his professional achievements, O’Keefe has been active in sharing his insights on social media and is known for his pioneering work in the legal field, particularly in the use of technology for practice development. He is a graduate of the University of Notre Dame and the University of the Pacific-McGeorge School of Law, and he continues to be a significant figure in the legal and tech industries.

I can see me playing with Grok, especially when doing searches on Twitter for people, news and events I may be following. Unlike ChatGPT which lags for two years, Grok is also current, having good info on LexBlog Publishing’s just launched AI Legal Daily.
