From CP newsletter

https://www.codeproject.com/News.aspx?ntag=19837497830328834&_z=2928472[^]

Headline basically says it all.

"Can an AI Become Its Own CEO After Creating a Startup? Google DeepMind Co-Founder Thinks So"

Naturally this is nonsense. Certainly in the US and other countries I suspect.

To start a 'company' or even something like a LLC or even to get a business license an actual human has to submit the forms. That person ends up signing the legal documents.

And AI cannot do that.
Even if an AI could in fact become sentient in just 6 years (as claimed by the CEO) that would still need to be recognized as a legal entity by the judicial system.

---------------------------------------------------

The document also references a recent UK court case.

"A recent ruling in the U.K. argues that an AI definitively cannot be a patent holder. "

Phrasing of that is odd. The suit brought argued that case. The court settled the case. The court did not 'argue' that.

That also failed to mention the exact same case that was filed in the US by the same person. Not the CEO mentioned in the link above. That person specifically has claimed that AI is now sentient in other places. This case is just his attempt trying to legally prove that.
