Why are Google and others making their AI tools open?

Roger K. Moore (husband's ex-boss) tweeted in May 2016:

Of course they're happy to release their tools, they're sitting on all the data needed to use them effectively

but of course this explains why they can do it, without bad consequences for themselves. 
It doesn't explain why they do it.
The obvious explanation is that perhaps some of the clever clogs around  will find newer means of making more money.

 "open source tools are arriving that can run on affordable hardware and allow individuals and small organizations to perform prodigious data crunching and predictive tasks" 

and separating fact from hype is every time harder.

Meanwhile it makes sense to pay attention to
