Here is one retail investor's assessment of the announcement of a JV between Microsoft and GM's Cruise: - This is an admission from GM their micro-data approach is not going to be effective, just as Elon Musk has been saying for several years. - Microsoft has not covered themselves in glory, of late. Frankly, I'd bet against them. This breaks my heart but my outlook for GM is no longer as hopeful as it was 6 months ago. At least they are working on an AI cortex. They aren't the last to that party. It will come down to Microsoft's efficacy of achieving an AI result. Let's hope.
