Elon Musk Intends to Transform how People Receive News by Utilizing Grok AI's Stories Feature

By Consultants Review Team Monday, 06 May 2024

While Grok isn't as well-known or utilized as ChatGPT, Copilot, or Gemini AI, it is nonetheless noticeable on social networking site X. Elon Musk now has a somewhat unconventional theory on how people read the news. During an interview, Musk expressed his opinion that the majority of people prefer to learn about news by hearing other people's perspectives rather than reading or watching it. For this reason, X unveiled Stories, a brand-new feature driven by Grok AI. Discover what's trending worldwide with @grok's Stories on X. The social networking site said in a post on X that it was "Now available for Premium subscribers in the Explore tab!"

Currently, the capability is limited to Premium users on iOS and the web. According to a post on X, Stories "aims to offer quick overviews of trending topics, blending news with commentary."
In the interview, Musk stated, "The news summary will update to include that information as more information becomes available." "To provide information that is as timely and accurate as possible while citing the most important sources" is the straightforward objective.

How is the Stories feature implemented?

Grok AI provides consumers with a quick and easy-to-read way to keep informed by distilling social network material using sophisticated algorithms. As a result, readers will get brief summaries of news items based on user commentary.

In the interview, Musk clarified that Grok will depend on social media posts about the articles and what people are saying rather than delving deeply into the text of the articles. He explained, "It's summarizing what people say on X."

It is a very different approach to news delivery because many postings on X look biased, include unrelated material, or are plain useless. Musk envisions a day when Grok AI would intervene, become sufficiently smart to identify the appropriate synopsis, and refrain from making illogical remarks. As with other AI chatbots, "Grok can make mistakes; verify its outputs." is the standard disclaimer. But in this instance, errors might provide readers false information.
