This morning I was at one of those automated car conferences. Which was filled with a lot of boring AI stuff. But the thing I did find interesting was - the car companies are sort of trying to gang up against Amazon, Google, and Apple for their future in car infotainment systems. They are trying to pick different companies for speech and gesture so they don't have those names branded on the inside of their cars. It seems like they feel if they chose them, they sort of lose their soul.
Now that's the Silicon Valley I used to know.
