Hours after Google wrapped its major cloud keynote on Tuesday, I sat down for dinner with three public tech company CEOs and a handful of journalists on New York’s West Side. It was the type of gathering happening more frequently in the post-COVID era, where top executives and media meet to discuss the latest AI breakthroughs. And unlike most such gatherings, it was on the record.
