Top Relevant Quotes:

“We do a disservice to founders, and to the next generation of defense tech, by not driving home the fundamentals of corporate growth strategy and execution. We’re not holding folks to fundamentals and we’re not forcing good corporate behavior.”
Tyler - 8:18

“We can build synthetic sounds that sound like Miles Davis and Charlie Parker playing their instruments, so I have a hard time believing that we’re going to have tons of AI regulations about what people have written that’s in the public domain.”
Ben - 12:55

“There’s a real possibility of bots figuring out reasoning and taking action on their own. That’s emerging and it’s honestly a little scary. I don’t know if anyone has a path forward on how to regulate this. My kids’ experience, in twenty years, is going to be wildly different than what we know today.”
Ben - 14:38
