Grok open source: Tesla boss Elon Musk has said that Grok, xAI's large language model, will be open-sourced this week.

Elon Musk also took a dig at OpenAI's ChatGPT, saying “OpenAI is a lie.” Musk was responding to a comment to his post on X.

The billionaire's startup launched the AI model to a small group of users last November. In a podcast episode with Lex Fridman, Musk suggested that he liked the concept of open-source AI.

Two months ago, Elon Musk said that he felt uncomfortable growing the carmaker into a leader in AI and robotics unless he had at least 25 per cent voting control of the company.

The billionaire Tesla boss sued ChatGPT-maker OpenAI and its CEO Sam Altman last month, saying they had abandoned the startup's original mission to develop artificial intelligence for the benefit of humanity and not for profit.
