Russia ranks fourth in the world, after the US, China and India and ahead of the UK, in terms of the number of people who use Kaggle — the crowdsourcing platform used by most AI researchers, which was acquired by Google this year.
The first loan the BRICS Development Bank — a financial institution set up jointly by Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa — has approved for Russia is meant to fund a project that includes the use of AI in Russian courts to automate trial records using speech recognition.
Nor are the top thinkers and investors in the field.
IBM's recent list of “AI influencers” only includes one native Russian speaker, University of Lousiville's Roman Yampolskiy — who, like Musk, worries about a possible “AI apocalypse” — and he's originally from Latvia, not Russia.
She was named after her mother, while her two middle names are those of her paternal great-grandmother, Queen Alexandra, and paternal grandmother, Queen Mary. The Princess's early years were spent at 145 Piccadilly, the London house taken by her parents shortly after her birth, and at White Lodge in Richmond Park.

Princess Elizabeth was educated at home with Princess Margaret, her younger sister. She received tuition from her father, as well as sessions with Henry Marten, the Vice-Provost of Eton.

The day after the wedding, Princess Elizabeth followed a Royal tradition started by her mother, of sending her wedding bouquet back to the Abbey to be laid on this grave. The bride's wedding ring was made from a nugget of Welsh gold which came from the Clogau St David's mine near Dolgellau. Around 10,000 telegrams of congratulations were received at Buckingham Palace and the Royal couple received over 2,500 wedding presents from well-wishers around the world. As well as jewellery from their close relatives, including the King and Queen, the couple received many useful items for the kitchen and home, including salt cellars from the Queen, a bookcase from Queen Mary, and a picnic case from Princess Margaret. The "wedding breakfast" (lunch) was held after the marriage ceremony at Westminster Abbey in the Ball Supper-room at Buckingham Palace. Thomas’s flowing chiffon dresses from the 1970s reflect the relaxed style of the decade.
But Russia is known to be experimenting with network-centric warfare — including during its Syrian military operation — so AI implementations are a logical step.
It's likely that, as in Soviet times, the military applications of AI in Russia are outpacing consumer ones.
Nations will be killing with AI long before the technology can cause mass unemployment.
In this sense, Musk's alarmism — and Putin's words about AI-based global dominance — should be taken seriously.
Prince Philip was required to choose a surname in order to continue his career in the Royal Navy, and adopted Mountbatten, the name of his mother's British relatives.
