Elon Musk says xAI will open-source Grok this week

Elon Musk said Monday he will open-source Grok, X’s AI chatbot rivaling ChatGPT, this week, days after suing OpenAI and complaining that the Microsoft-backed startup had deviated from its open source roots

Musk’s AI startup xAI released Grok, featuring “real-time access” to information, last year. The service is available to customers paying for X’s subscription.

Musk helped co-found OpenAI as a counterweight to Google. But OpenAI, which was required to also make its technology “freely available” to the public, has become closed-source and shifted focus to maximize profits for Microsoft, Musk alleged in the lawsuit filed late last month.
