Google "We Have No Moat, And Neither Does OpenAI"
Leaked Internal Google Document Claims Open Source AI Will Outcompete Google and OpenAI.
"We’ve done a lot of looking over our shoulders at OpenAI. Who will cross the next milestone? What will the next move be?
But the uncomfortable truth is, we aren’t positioned to win this arms race and neither is OpenAI. While we’ve been squabbling, a third faction has been quietly eating our lunch.
I’m talking, of course, about open source. Plainly put, they are lapping us. Things we consider “major open problems” are solved and in people’s hands today."

I'm still pretty fresh to the industry, but does anyone else find this interestingly pessimistic? Not because I think they're wrong, but more because it's supposedly an internal document that's really just poking holes into a bunch of stuff. Maybe I'm naive or whatever, but I feel like if I had poked this many holes into anything my management/organization was doing, I'd be canned lol.

The best companies will give you agency to push back and point out errors in the long term strategy for the company. Much prefer this transparency than holding back.
