From May 2019:

Silicon Valley is awash in Chinese and Saudi cash — and no one ispaying attention (except Trump)
A tough, new enforcement regime is becoming a geopolitical minefield for venture capitalists and startups.

Why Is There So Much Saudi Money in American Universities?

Fun fact: The Media Lab is another corporate consortium. Despite its name, the lab’s focus is on computing and technology rather than the news media. Its director, Joi Ito, identifies as a hacker, and his motto for the lab — “deploy or die” — means that students should not be afraid to quickly test their ideas in the marketplace. (Ito is a board member at The New York Times Company.)


From 2016: President Obama Sat Down with MIT’s Joi Ito for Wired.

The two engaged in a wide-ranging discussion with Wired editor in chief Scott Dadich for the frontiers-themed issue, with topics ranging from AI and self-driving cars.

Can you capture a portrait of a city with a sensor-mounted taxi?

It takes just ten taxis to cover as much as a third of Manhattan in a single day, opening up new possibilities for mobile sensing. (Courtesy MIT Senseable City Lab)
