Insights from the AI Index 2019 Annual Report

That’s exciting, in some ways, that there’s this infusion of expertise into industry, but it’s also concerning in some ways… Because at least from my perspective, it seems like – you know, when I’m thinking about Academia, this gap between how in touch Academia is with industry is separating more and more, in certain ways… So I would love to see industry and Academia be closer, and people coming out of university programs really ready practically to do jobs… But I’m not sure that that’s really happening, because the AI professors in Academia that are interested in industry stuff are just leaving to go to industry, and then what’s left is just pure academic research, which is interesting, but maybe in some ways less connected to industry problems.
