Neuralink owner Elon Musk, after achieving a remarkable feat by implanting a brain chip into human brain, has announced to launch an enhanced chatbot, under start-up Artificial Intelligence company xAI, Reuters reported.

In a statement on Thursday xAI announced that the new version called Grok-1.5 will be available for early testing to existing Grok users and Musk's social media platform X.

The startup said: "One of the most notable improvements in Grok-1.5 is its performance in coding and math-related tasks."

Tesla chief executive had launched xAI last year in March to create what he said would be a "maximum truth-seeking AI".

In December, Grok was launched for premium X users.

Grok-1.5 features

Better in solving math problems

Grok had set a benchmark of 62.9% on the GSM8K, while Grok 1.5, showed significant improvement by scoring 90% on the GSM8K benchmark. It also scored 74.1% on the HumanEval benchmark which showed improved code generation and problem-solving abilities.
