Grok uses algorithmic frameworks to find trends in scattered data and make predictions about what patterns come next. Instead of analyzing mountains of data that companies are storing, it is one of the first to work off streams of real-time information from sensors.
… what’s unique about Grok is the automation layer, and its continuous ability to learn. The product can be fed into companies’ existing control systems to automate processes that previously required manual adjustment. Instead of reacting to problems, users can anticipate them and optimize accordingly.
