Grok, xAI's chat AI, was developed with the help of Mr. Musk and is described as ``an AI with a bit of wit and a cheeky side, inspired by the science fiction novel ` `The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.''

On March 11, 2024, Mr. Musk announced on X that Grok will be open sourced by the end of this week. By making Grok open source, general researchers and developers will be able to freely test Grok code, similar to Meta's Llama2 , and it is expected that research and development will accelerate.

Musk has long been a supporter of open source, and in 2014 the electric car maker Tesla, of which he is CEO, declared that it would not ``file patent lawsuits against people who want to use our technology in good faith.'' In addition, we have released the systems installed in several car models as open source . In addition, the source code for X's algorithm was also made open source after Mr. Musk acquired it.

The announcement to open source Grok comes after Musk filed a lawsuit against OpenAI, claiming that although it was originally a non-profit organization, it has transitioned to a for-profit company and become a de facto subsidiary of Microsoft. This was done immediately after.

OpenAI was established in 2015 as a ``non-profit organization that researches AI with open source'' with donations from Mr. Musk and others , but Mr. Musk resigned from the board after an attempt to acquire OpenAI failed in 2018. . After that, OpenAI, which became a commercial company, released ChatGPT and received billions of dollars (hundreds of billions of yen) in investment from Microsoft.

Mr. Musk has long expressed dissatisfaction with these changes in OpenAI, and filed a lawsuit against OpenAI in San Francisco Superior Court on February 29, 2024. In response, OpenAI counters that ``Mr. Musk was planning to merge OpenAI and Tesla, acquire a majority stake, etc.'' and is moving in the direction of having Mr. Musk withdraw all claims.

In response to Grok's open source announcement, ``OpenAI should do the same. If they are 'open,' that is.'' Mr. Musk commented, ``OpenAI is a lie.''
