Dear friends,

I’ll be spending Thanksgiving with Nova and watching her taste turkey for the first time. To those of you who celebrate Thanksgiving, I hope you spend time with loved ones, reflect on what you are thankful for, and discuss some very important topics around the dinner table:

  • Should you get a real dog or a Boston Dynamics Spot?
  • How can we keep the kids from using GPT-2 to write school essays?
  • What do you say to Uncle Harold who thinks Siri is sentient?

In AI, all of us should be thankful to stand on the shoulders of those who came before. I’ll leave you with one thought: What can you do now so that, in the future, dozens or more will feel thankful toward you? Let’s work together to help each other, and thereby move the world forward.

Keep learning!
