On many aspects, Google is a Good Old Fashioned Artificial Intelligence. It does knowledge base construction with freebase done by humans, I does quality assurance control and curation by humans, it does learning-to-rank machine learning based on algorithms (and (hyper) parameters) curated by humans, also spell checking and keywords suggestion are based on statistical significance mined from keywords co-occurrence in queries done by humans... All that stuff look like brute force and humans.

Things Covid has proven:

1. The job you were told couldn't be done remotely can be done remotely

2. Many disabled workers could have been working from home, but corporations just didn't want them to.

3. Internet is a utility, not a luxury.

4. Universal healthcare is a necessity.

And... come on choi sum, you've been in my kitchen for like, 2 days and you're flowering already??
