Alright, check it out, there’s this UK government advisor on artificial intelligence, and he’s kind of skeptical about the UK being able to nurture a tech startup like OpenAI. He’s saying it could never happen in the UK and he’s got some concerns about the country’s short-term focus on innovation.
This data scientist, who’s a founder of an AI startup called Xenesis, has even served as an advisor to the UK Cabinet Office. And he’s saying there’s no way a company like his could secure funding in the UK, so they have to look outside the country for support.
But, it’s not all bad news. This advisor also acknowledges the UK’s strengths and potential in the field of AI, especially when it comes to merging AI and fintech. And he brings up an interesting point about the difference in leadership between the UK and the US when it comes to startups. In the UK, he says the business people tend to overpower the technical experts, which is a unique dynamic.
So, it’s an interesting perspective. What do you guys think? Can the UK nurture a tech startup like OpenAI? Drop a comment and let’s talk about it.
