Here's the proposal: Since "AI in education can't compete with the ability / willingness to pay from large tech companies and trillion-dollar industries" then "we think this is a bold moment for tech companies, particularly NVIDIA and Google, to commit a portion of their compute capacity - starting at 1% - to fuel AI for non-governmental social impact organizations." It's an interesting idea, but I have a better one: have these giant tech companies (and all the rest of them) pay their taxes to the point where the public provision of vital social services such as education can stand on an equal footing with the profit motive in the marketplace.
