OpenAI preps release of open source AI model: Report

CoinTelegraph reported:

An open-source artificial intelligence (AI) model is reportedly being prepared for public release by OpenAI, the firm behind the AI chatbot ChatGPT.

In a May 16 report in The Information citing a person with knowledge of the plan, OpenAI is undertaking the move as pressure mounts from competing open-sourced AI models, such as those from Meta released in February.

The timeline of when the model would be released was not reported.

It was said OpenAI’s open-source model would likely not be competitive with its flagship ChatGPT product as the firm’s value comes from being able to sell access to its more sophisticated models.

Earlier in May, a leaked document from Google senior software engineer Luke Sernau pointed to open-source AI models as a significant threat to the company’s own AI efforts.

Sernau said while Google was distracted by its competition with OpenAI, open-source AI models quietly, quickly and significantly advanced.

Cointelegraph contacted OpenAI for comment but did not immediately receive a response.
