The successful mainstream apps that came out after the iPhone weren’t successful because they were deep, theoretical technology. They were successful because they were made by the people who were most in love with the problem. The axis shifted from being about technology to being about design. Right when that happens, right when some fundamental new platform goes from being academically interesting to mainstream interesting is the time to have it as a theme and to build it. I think that’s what’s happening with AI right now.
India is a country of contradictions. There is the India that grows its economy, then there is the India with extreme income inequality. One India shows its girls they can grow up to be rocket scientists, the other doesn’t ensure her that the rights to education and safety are a given. While one India follows the shortest trajectory to Mars, the other India remains inaccessible by road.
