AI-generated news clips are now available on X

Summarizing information on the Internet is certainly one of the notable applications of generative AI models. While AI models from major companies like Google dominate this application, Musk's social media platform X is now also on the list.

Users interested in learning more about the event can delve deeper via chat on Grok.

Grok has been available on the platform for customers of its paid plans for a while now. The new summary feature, if implemented correctly, could become a major reason for users to pay for the Premium subscription.

He also added that the news summary will be updated as more information becomes available on a particular event or topic.

Choosing people's conversations on the platform instead of publications to come up with a summary about an event has its own advantages. “Courts tend to include commentary under the fair use provision, as opposed to original work,” said Danielle Coffey, president and CEO of the News/Media Alliance, which represents thousands of news publishers. It could save them from many problems arising from copyright infringement. For reference, eight newspapers sued OpenAI and Microsoft over the same case last week.

The summary feature is only available on the web and iOS for now

The news comes from the X Technology account with an image display showing what “Stories on X” looks like. The post reveals that these new AI-generated news clips will appear on X in the “For You” section of the Discover tab. The post also notes that the 'Stories on
