X utilizes Grok for AI-generated news

X is leveraging Grok to create AI-generated summaries of trending news and topics on its platform. This feature, named “Stories on X,” is currently accessible to premium subscribers only, as per information shared by the company’s engineering account.

Grok utilizes users’ posts to generate these text snippets. The summaries vary, covering news items and conversations happening within the platform. For instance, there have been stories about Apple’s earnings report, aid to Ukraine, and discussions involving Elon Musk and other notable figures debating the national debt.

The concept of Grok’s summaries might ring a bell for those familiar with Moments, a former Twitter feature that curated authoritative tweets related to significant news and cultural events. Moments was discontinued in 2022.

Similar to other AI tools, Grok’s summaries are accompanied by a disclaimer acknowledging the potential for errors and advising users to verify the information.

Grok has faced challenges in accurately interpreting current events in the past, such as misinterpreting basketball terminology and generating a story suggesting NBA player Klay Thompson engaged in a “vandalism spree.”

Despite its imperfections, Grok’s “Stories on X” feature adds a new dimension to the platform by providing AI-generated summaries of trending topics and conversations among users.
