Elon Musk says all Premium subscribers on X will gain access to AI chatbot Grok this week

Elon Musk's xAI announces that all Premium subscribers on X will gain access to the Grok AI chatbot this week. Previously exclusive to Premium+ subscribers, Grok's availability expansion aims to retain users amidst declining X platform usage. Grok offers unique features, responding to topics typically off-limits to other chatbots and accessing real-time X data. 

Musk's move may counteract user migration to alternative platforms, addressing revenue concerns amid reduced advertiser spending on X. The update underscores Musk's strategy to enhance user engagement and loyalty within the X ecosystem.


Researchers find that removing up to half the layers in large language models (LLMs) minimally impacts performance on question-answering tasks. By identifying optimal layers to prune and using efficient finetuning methods, they reduce computational resources without significant loss. This challenges current pretraining methods' effectiveness in utilizing deeper layers or highlights shallow layers' knowledge storage importance.

The new 2D Gaussian Splatting (2DGS) method improves radiance field reconstruction by accurately representing surfaces from multi-view images. Unlike 3D Gaussian methods, 2DGS provides consistent geometry and intrinsic surface modeling. It introduces perspective-accurate splatting and enhances reconstructions with depth distortion and normal consistency. The approach offers detailed geometry, fast training, and real-time rendering, with code available publicly.

The InternLM2 Technical Report introduces an open-source Large Language Model (LLM) that surpasses previous models in various evaluations and subjective assessments. It details meticulous pre-training methods, including diverse data types like text and code, achieving notable performance on long-context tasks. The model employs innovative optimization techniques, including Conditional Online Reinforcement Learning from Human Feedback (COOL RLHF), to address conflicting human preferences. Multiple model versions are released to facilitate community understanding of its evolution.

TC4D introduces trajectory-conditioned text-to-4D generation, enhancing dynamic 3D scene synthesis by incorporating global and local motion components. It utilizes rigid transformations along trajectories for global motion and learns local deformations supervised by text-to-video models. TC4D enables realistic scene animation along arbitrary trajectories and improves motion realism, demonstrated qualitatively and via user study.

Octree-GS introduces LOD-structured 3D Gaussians for real-time rendering, addressing bottlenecks in large scenes with complex details. By dynamically selecting appropriate levels from multi-resolution anchor points, it ensures consistent rendering performance with adaptive LOD adjustments. This approach improves rendering fidelity and efficiency compared to NeRF-based representations, particularly in scenes with varying details.
