The AI landscape is rapidly evolving, influenced by computing power, talent, and financial dynamics. OpenAI has lost its lead, Google has surged ahead, Microsoft has become a dark horse, and smaller players like Anthro see new opportunities. A wave of recruitment in AI is imminent, fueled by devalued shares, massive spigots of capital and seismic shifts in the talent and compute power world. A week ago, OpenAI was the clear leader in the industry, with Google as a distant #2 and a field of irrelevant fast followers Today, Google is #1, and Microsoft #2, and OpenAI has a question mark next to its future. Opportunities for success have expanded 10x. This period marks a transformational moment for AI, with significant ethical and moral implications to consider.
