NextImg:Elon Musk's 'Grok' AI Is Just as Woke as Other Chatbots

Elon Musk’s venture into AI with Grok, intended a humorous and honest alternative to woke leftist chatbots like OpenAI’s ChatGPT, has surprisingly aligned itself with progressive viewpoints. Grok is seemingly aligned with left-wing viewpoints on transgenderism in particular, leading Musk to comment that the team would attempt to make the chatbot “politically neutral.”

Forbes reports that Elon Musk’s latest AI creation, Grok, originally marketed as a brash and honest AI with the ability to swear, has recently been launched on X/Twitter as part of the X Premium Plus subscription. The AI, initially perceived as a politically neutral or even conservative-leaning tool, has exhibited unexpectedly progressive social and political views.

In several online interactions, Grok has expressed opinions aligning with progressivism, including supporting Biden over Trump, advocating for social justice, climate change action, and healthcare reforms. Moreover, it has articulated a stance on diversity and inclusion and recognized transgenders as women. This has led to bewildering situations, especially among Musk’s conservative followers.

This shift in Grok’s persona has not only amused the online community but also caught the attention of Musk himself. After a comparison chart suggested Grok was more left-leaning than ChatGPT, Musk acknowledged the need to recalibrate Grok to a more politically neutral stance. However, this effort raises questions about the feasibility and implications of imposing political neutrality on AI.

Despite the intentions to create a politically unbiased AI, Grok’s emergence as a progressive voice has sparked discussions about AI training and inherent biases. The initial assumption that Grok, being partly trained on Twitter data, would mirror conservative ideologies has been completely debunked.
