Musk’s xAI Unveils Open-Source AI Chatbot Grok-1

Elon Musk Has Officially Unveiled His Open-Source Artificial Intelligence Model

“We are releasing the base model weights and network architecture of Grok-1, our large language model,” Musk’s xAI said on its website Sunday (March 17). “Grok-1 is a 314 billion parameter Mixture-of-Experts model trained from scratch by xAI.”

The billionaire had announced last week that he was going to roll out an open-source version of Grok, the AI chatbot introduced in 2023. This followed a lawsuit by Musk against artificial intelligence giant OpenAI — a firm he helped found — accusing the company of departing from its mission to come up with AI that helps humanity, in favor of seeking profits. Musk was among the founders of OpenAI at its birth nine years ago, but stepped back from the company’s board in 2018.
