At its core, artificial intelligence is a military technology. Why is the company sharing it with a rival?
John NoonanSometimes it feels like @peterthiel is a voice in the wilderness on AI.
This isn't just mandatory reading. The whole column should be etched on a blimp orbiting Silicon Valley 24-7, 365.
Can’t an educational institution understand that children are different from adults and that a truly enormous amount of growth can occur in a short amount of time?

The deputy head of a Chinese military academy told an audience in Shenzhen last month that tensions in the South China Sea could be resolved by sinking a pair of U.S. aircraft carriers, reports said.
John NoonanWhat concerns me about this rhetoric is that China sounds exactly like Japanese High Command in 1941: the US is a weak, pleasure seeking nation... and if we thump their Navy hard enough, they won’t fight for little Pacific islands
