On a related note, check the frequency (and substance) of updates from the Elon Musk-backed Open AI versus the Amazon, Apple, Facebook, Google/DeepMind, IBM, and Microsoft-backed Partnership on Artificial Intelligence to Benefit People and Society (spoiler alert: 5 updates since 9/28/2016, for the latter)

"“I think people who are naysayers and try to drum up these doomsday scenarios — I don’t understand it,” Zuckerberg replied. “It’s really negative, and in some ways I think it's pretty irresponsible.”

When Musk then saw Zuckerberg’s comments in a story posted to Twitter, he chimed in.

“I've talked to Mark about this. His understanding of the subject is limited,” Musk tweeted.
