From Steve via email:
I saw an article that Google is giving away $25 million to fund humane AI projects to solve seemingly intractable problems. My question to the All Turtles luminaries is what they think of this effort, which coincides with Google’s decision to not pursue $10 billion military contract for use of AI (Microsoft is now pursuing this).
We want to hear from you
