…d by a government engaged in a coordinated effort to dominate the field of artificial intelligence. I am sorry, but I consider myself a convinced democrat, and the idea that countries with long democratic traditions taking measures to harm their successful companies to indirectly benefit companies created in undemocratic countries is absurd. Sincerely, between companies like Google or Amazon, and their Chinese equivalents, backed by their autocratic government, I prefer the former. But maybe I’m missed something.
I am not solution-oriented. I don’t see a problem and get giddy at the idea of solving it, patching it up and sending it on its merry way. I want to poke it and ask it questions. Where did it come from, what is it doing, what’s its story? I want to take it to tea and hear about its life and understand it to its core. And if, at that point, I’ve come to a wholistic understanding and am able to solve the problem, by all means, let the problem-solving commence! But my instinct is never to solve, but to understand.
