Google wins

Google has two large, long-term projects underway:

1. Establishment of the world's most massive computing centers - this
is odd, given that Google already has the best response time and most
reliable websites in the world, and the amount of centralized
computing power they are building does not seem necessary for indexing
the web using anything like present means. Although I don't really

2. Scanning in and converting to computer-searchable files as many
books as they can.

When an AI is developed, Google will have the most computer power to
run it on, and the largest collection of data to feed it with.
