Grok, a paid artificial intelligence robot from xAI, one of Elon Musk’s many companies, will be developed with the help of a supercomputer. According to a report by The Information, xAI will collaborate with Oracle to develop the supercomputer, which is expected to be operational by 2025.

Musk had stated earlier this year that Grok 2 would require 20,000 Nvidia H100 GPUs for training, and future Grok models would need over 100,000 H100 GPUs. By creating this supercomputer, named after Tesla’s gigafactories and dubbed the “gigafactory of computers,” xAI aims to develop more advanced language models.

If you haven’t tried or even heard of Grok, it’s because OpenAI’s ChatGPT dominates the AI world. Grok AI is available for use on X.com, but requires a monthly subscription fee. One of Grok’s biggest advantages over other models is its direct access to all posts on X, which Musk claims has replaced traditional news sources.
