Elon Musk’s Grok AI Accuses Him of Going to Court for Pedophilia

Elon Musk’s new anti-woke artificial intelligence chatbot is popping off — and it has some weird stuff to say about its creator, in yet another cautionary tale about generative AI systems cooking up ridiculous non-factual claims. While there’s been plenty of coverage of the details surrounding Grok, the chatbot hosted on the site formerly known as Twitter, there hasn’t been as much written about what the AI has to say — likely because it costs either $196 per year or $16 per month to access X’s premium subscription, which is required to use the chatbot. Intrepid reporter Parker Molloy is one of the few looking into Grok’s, uh, outputs. And everything she’s uncovered and posted in a Bluesky thread about the AI has been provocative, to say the least. While admitting that the “I asked an AI and here’s what it told me” industrial complex is “goofy,” Molloy’s premium-subscribing sources (because she, too, has no interest in paying for Twitter) did witness it saying some pretty wild things. In one such instance, Grok even “confirmed” that Musk is a pedophile. Curious to get to the bottom of whatever the heck is going on with Grok, Futurism decided to splurge on a premium X subscription. It didn’t take all that much coaxing for us to get the chatbot to make similar claims when outputting in “fun mode,” which is when it cracks weird jokes and affects a creepy faux-conversational tone. Obviously, there’s a lot to unpack in Grok’s response to our query…Elon Musk’s Grok AI Accuses Him of Going to Court for Pedophilia
