xAI’s mission is to create AI systems that can accurately understand the universe and aid humanity in its pursuit of knowledge. We operate with a flat organizational structure. All employees are expected to be hands-on and to contribute directly to the company’s mission.

Grok is designed to answer questions with a bit of wit and has a rebellious streak, so please don't use it if you hate humor!
A unique and fundamental advantage of Grok is that it has real-time knowledge of the world via the X platform. It will also answer spicy questions that are rejected by most other AI systems.
By creating and improving Grok, we aim to:
Our ultimate goal is for our AI tools to assist in the pursuit of understanding.
