I wonder what the conversations are like between Elon Musk and Larry Page, two best friends and mutual admirers. The two of them have the largest data sets by far. Both must be thinking they have the most R&D power of any companies, they have the most at stake and both face fierce competition from China.
Maybe they consider themselves to be fierce competitors, like Google and Apple, with different competing models. Elon wants his stuff to sell his own cars; Page wants various car brands to buy his stuff.
