Elon Musk plans to open source his AI chatbot, Grok, this week


Elon Musk’s chatbot “Grok” is going open source this week, Musk writes on X, without specifying which components will be open source and to what extent. Grok is based on Grok-1, the first large language model from x.AI, Elon Musk’s AI company. The model took about four months to develop, including two months of training. The training data is cut off in Q3 2023, the context length of the model is 8,192 tokens. In benchmarks, Grok-1 is on par with GPT-3.5, a level now reached by many open-source models. For the Grok chatbot implementation on X, Grok-1 is configured to provide answers to “spicy questions” that would be rejected by most other AI systems. Elon Musk’s open-sourcing of Grok could be a reaction to his lawsuit against OpenAI, in which he criticizes OpenAI for its closed-source model policy.
