Grok mimics the unapologetically blunt tone of the controversial LLM Grok developed by xAI, the latest company launched by Elon Musk. When probed about AI's impact on jobs, it doesn't hold back, delivering a raw and unfiltered response in classic Grok style.
Grok's explicit and opinionated nature serves as a humorous reminder of the challenges associated with content moderation and ethical AI, even within customized models.

Nevertheless, these unique use cases showcase the potential of large language models. As we head into the second year post-ChatGPT, brace yourself for a wilder ride in the customized GPT landscape.
