    By this logic, no businesses should rely on the internet, roads, electricity, running water, GPS, or phones. It is short sighted building stuff on top of brand new untested tech, but everything was untested at one point. No one wants to get left behind in case it turns out to be the next internet where early adoption was crucial for your entire business to survive. It shouldn’t be necessary for like, Costco to have to spin up their own LLM and become an AI company just to try out a better virtual support chat system, you know? But ya, they should be more diligent and get an SLA in place before widespread adoption of new tech for sure.

      Where’s any logic here? You’re directly comparing untested technology to reliable public utilities.

      Many of those things you mentioned are open standards or have multiple providers that you can seamlessly substitute if the one you’re currently depending on goes blooey.

      To be fair, there’s a difference between a tax-funded service or a common utility, and software built by a new company that’s getting shoved into production way quicker than it probably shohld

      This is nonsense.

      There are multiple GPS providers now. It would be idiotic to tie yourself to a single provider. The same with internet, phones or whatever else.

        This is for businesses of scale that have the ability to have multiple fallback vendors. AI will be the same eventually, we didn’t have lots of utility alternatives to start with.
