The dangers of industrial capture by the private market could spell a slow progression for nonprofits and government orgs. As noted in FT’s piece, the massive over-indexing of investment in this space compared to public sectors can de-incentivize and disable the ability to use AI for societal, environmental, and infrastructure purposes that would be invested in and explored by the government.

While I am not against the proliferation of private markets’ usage and maturation of the tech, it will undoubtably be in the service of monetization (how else can they achieve returns on the $100+bn investment last year alone?), and models developed may not necessarily be useable for the purposes of advancing non-private agendas, slowing or preventing innovations that are possible here.
