Mozilla invested $300 billion in a non-profit, open-source AI company, Mozilla.ai, in a move to counteract the challenges posed by Bing, ChatGPT, and Bard. The idea is to challenge the closed system, profit-based AI ventures through a free, accessible, and open-source AI ecosystem. The move will create a human-first approach with more participation, transparency, accountability, and trustworthiness to AI sources. They intend to enhance internet security and privacy to develop it into a public resource. They want to create a decentralized AI community that can counterweight the impacts of the large tech companies that built AI aimed at profit. Their project includes two aspects, the first being a free, bankable open source generative AI, and the second is a privacy-first recommendation system that bypasses misinformation or security.
