Mozilla announced the founding of an open source initiative for developing AI that puts transparency, accountability and trustworthiness at the forefront of the open source AI products they will build to challenge Microsoft, OpenAI and Google. Many of the most important software products that make modern life possible, like Android, WordPress, PHP, Nginx and Apache are all open source. By creating a company that actively creates free and open source AI, they are taking a more active role in challenging big technology companies like OpenAI and Google. The Mozilla mission statement says that they are focused on creating an Internet that is people-first, open, free and accessible. The announcement stated that their first two projects will focus on creating a free, trustworthy and open source generative AI, which is a product like ChatGPT and Bard.
