Subject: [Governance] How strongly captured by Big Tech is the field of AI research

An excellent and eye opening article in ACM's journal on how strongly captured by Big Tech most AI research is today. There also seem not many alternatives on the horizon.


If AI is the future, and everything AI is shaped by the Big Tech, then public interest actors of the world have something that must be addressed urgently..

But many apparently are busy handing even tech governance spaces over to Big Tech, so nothing ever comes in the latter's way.
