X’s Grok chatbot will soon get an upgraded model, Grok-1.5

Key Points:

  • Grok-1.5 benefits from improved reasoning for coding and math-related tasks.
  • Grok-1.5 can process contexts of up to 128,000 tokens, leading to better understanding and longer document handling.
  • Grok models by X.ai respond to off-limits topics, have a rebellious streak, and may include new features in Grok-1.5.


Elon Musk’s AI startup, X.ai, has unveiled its latest generative AI model, Grok-1.5, which is poised to enhance the capabilities of the social network X’s Grok chatbot in the near future. The new model boasts significant improvements, particularly in its reasoning abilities related to coding and mathematics. Grok-1.5 outperformed its predecessor, Grok-1, on various benchmarks, showcasing enhanced performance.


Noteworthy advancements in Grok-1.5 include its ability to comprehend larger contexts, with the capacity to process up to 128,000 tokens. This expanded context window enables the model to capture more information from longer documents and prompts, enhancing its understanding and responsiveness. X.ai emphasizes that Grok-1.5 can handle complex inputs while maintaining its instruction-following capability, a valuable feature for effective communication.


Distinctive to X.ai’s Grok models is their willingness to engage with topics typically avoided by other AI models, such as conspiracies and controversial political ideas. Known for their responses with a rebellious tone, Grok chatbots have differentiated themselves in the AI landscape. However, the extent of changes in this aspect with Grok-1.5 remains undisclosed by X.ai.
Early testers on X will soon have access to Grok-1.5, accompanied by several new features hinted at by Musk, including thread summarization and content suggestions. This update follows X.ai’s recent decision to open source Grok-1, although without providing the necessary code for further training. Moreover, more users on X, particularly those subscribed to the Premium plan, will soon have access to the Grok chatbot, previously exclusive to Premium+ customers.


Given the performance enhancements and expanded capabilities of Grok-1.5, it will be intriguing to see how users interact with the chatbot once it is fully deployed. The potential of Grok-1.5 to process complex inputs, engage with diverse topics, and provide insightful responses could make it a valuable tool for users seeking intelligent and engaging interactions on the X platform.
