Elon Musk has introduced Grok, a chatbot designed for premium users, offering a more creative and humorous approach to responses compared to OpenAI's ChatGPT. Grok leverages its knowledge from the internet and proprietary "X" data, providing answers to a wide range of questions, including those considered "spicy" by other AI systems.

Grok currently only works with text, but there are plans to expand its capabilities to include speech and image recognition in the future. The name "Grok" is inspired by The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, symbolizing empathy and companionship. Based on the Grok-1 language model, the chatbot has seen significant performance improvements and is a promising addition to the AI landscape, achieving competitive performance.

Today marks a significant milestone for Beatles fans as the legendary band releases their first new song since 1995, titled "Now and Then." The song's production narrative is nothing short of fascinating. Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr utilized breakthrough technology and machine learning to complete a track from an old John Lennon recording.

In 1978, Lennon recorded a demo at his home in New York City on which he sang along to the piano. After Lennon's death, his widow Yoko Ono gave the tape to the rest of the band.

It took 45 years to perfect the song. AI was used to enhance John Lennon's voice and George Harrison's guitar part. According to Paul McCartney, there are no artificially created vocals or music on the tape.

This innovative approach allowed McCartney and Starr to give "Now and Then" the conclusion it deserved, with a proper record that pays homage to the Beatles' legacy.

On the first day of the AI Safety Summit, organized by UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak, more than 25 countries, including the United States, the European Union and China, signed the "Bletchley Declaration”. It marks a milestone in the collective management of AI risks. This groundbreaking initiative lays the foundation for collaborative risk assessment and policy development to ensure the safe and ethical development of AI technologies.

While some skeptics doubt that geopolitical rivals can truly collaborate on AI, the initial commitment to cooperation indicates a shared vision. Key figures such as Elon Musk, who attended the AI Safety Summit, expressed confidence that AI is largely beneficial but comes with marked risks. This historic move, especially involving the US and China, offers hope that the shared risks of AI can unite competing world powers, although the path from ideals to concrete action remains challenging.
