xAI unveils Grok-1.5; Is it better than ChatGPT and Google Gemini

In a move to improve its large language model (LLM) offering, Elon Musk‘s artificial intelligence (AI) startup, xAI, has announced the release of Grok-1.5. 

This enhanced version of the Grok chatbot will be available to early testers and current Grok users on social media platform X (formerly Twitter) in the coming days, as announced on March 28.

Advancements in Grok-1.5

xAI’s Grok-1.5 demonstrates improvement in handling coding and math-related tasks. 

Metrics show a significant increase in accuracy on the MATH benchmark, jumping from 23.9% to 50.6%.

While this positions Grok-1.5 closer to competitors like Google’s Gemini (58.5%) and OpenAI‘s ChatGPT (52.9%), it still lags behind these leading models in overall performance.

Shifting focus to language comprehension, the update also boasts an expanded memory capacity for Grok-1.5. 

This allows it to understand longer contexts and perform more complex reasoning. Ultimately, this aims to deliver more nuanced and relevant responses during interactions.

Despite acknowledging Grok-1.5’s current limitations, xAI remains optimistic about the future. The company reportedly plans to develop Grok-2, a next-generation update that aims to surpass current AI models across all metrics. 

Market impact and user focus

Since its launch in 2023, xAI has aimed to establish itself in the AI market, leveraging Musk’s influence and resources. The release of Grok-1.5 signifies their effort to attract more users and solidify their position within the rapidly evolving LLM industry.

The release of Grok-1.5 could heighten competition and potentially drive further innovation within the AI chatbot market.

It’s important to note that while there’s a surge of interest, it is not possible to buy xAI stock.  

However, investors can still expose themselves to its performance by investing in alternative ventures owned by Musk.
