As engineer to be, how to deal with "old school" folks and how to believe in your calculations?

you don't know what you're talking about, you don't have the experience.

I think it's easy to pretend to invent something than to actually do it. these things take a lot of work, a lot of people, and a lot of time.

as for AI, it's mostly all hype right? Elons prolly got the best AI systems in the world at Space8 with orbital dynamics, Tesla with self driving ai. both of these are just linear regression modelling. based on silicon and the Intel chip stack.

no company as big as Amazon or Google has been created since the 90s (94 and 98, respectively). Facebook is 3rd and they're like a world behind. so I don't think we'll get a great ai company based off the Intel stack.

companies like Amazon, Google, groq are developing tpu's which are a bit faster, but still based on silicon tech. find a better element than silicon and I think that's when we'll see real ai. until then it's all fluff, yahoo had chat bots in 1999
