    Pretty sure Sam and Greg got A LOT of money to get „convinced“ to start at Microsoft

      Even if you start dreaming up ludicrous salaries/options, the cost to hire them would be only a fraction of the hit Microsoft would take in the market if not for this play. Satya could comfortably let them name their price and say yes to anything.

      This hand was played well by Satya.

        Yep, Google is paying the price of having bard being a late comer and Facebook is scrambling to pivot from VR to AI. Everyone is now in this text prediction business and it looks like the bubble will explode even faster than NFTs

          Bard is improving very quickly. It’s quicker to respond and gives a better response than ChatGPT a lot of the time. This drama will mean serious trouble for OpenAI.

          Let me know when we get there. We are far from it yet. I will more than likely measure the burst when it’s removed from MS Office and MS stops making their own chips…But for now it’s full steam ahead into MS NFT’s

        Indeed. Microsoft is definitely the winner.

      Truth. Though, OpenAI was valued around 80 billion, I’d be reasonably surprised if either of them was being offered a billion.

        I have the feeling that Microsoft will acquire OpenAI at some point. It just makes sense. OpenAI is nothing without Altmans vision.
