Thank you @sama for the clear answer. As you said, "it is hopeless, but you will try anyway". 5000 years of Indian entrepreneurship has shown us that we should never underestimate the Indian entrepreneur. We do intend to try 🚀@sama @OpenAI https://t.co/gQkxOZAFCW— Rajan Anandan (@RajanAnandan) June 8, 2023
