Posted March 15, 2020 17:23:29When the startup has a bad day, it’s often a matter of when, not if, the algorithm that will make its decision comes crashing down.
That’s why a startup might need a little help, if its algorithm is suddenly shut down.
That’s what happened to a startup called Aamva when it was acquired by Google last year.
In May 2018, the company was facing problems with its business model, and Google said it would not allow Aamvas to continue.
The problem wasn’t solved until a few weeks later, when Google announced that the company had been acquired by Alphabet, the parent company of Google.
In the following weeks, Aamvas business model suffered a major blow when Google pulled the plug on its payment system, saying that Aamavas technology wasn’t compatible with the Android mobile operating system.
“Google’s decision has impacted our business and disrupted the entire payment ecosystem for Aamava,” the company wrote in a blog post, “so we’ve decided to discontinue this service.”
Google didn’t mention any details about what caused the issue.
But in a recent blog post on Medium, Aumavas founder and CEO Dinesh Sharma wrote that Aumava’s technology was a “faulty” product, one that wasn’t well tested, didn’t work with Android, and didn’t have enough features.
In addition to the impact on its business, the situation also raised questions about the future of Aamavi.
If the software doesn’t work, or if it has no business to offer, what will it do?
“Aamva’s founders and employees are very worried about the possibility of a massive failure that would affect their livelihood,” Sharma wrote.
Aamvicas CEO said the company is considering filing for bankruptcy.
The fact that Aomavas had to take such drastic action underscores the potential dangers of artificial intelligence, which has become increasingly popular in recent years.
It’s also a reflection of how important AI is in the world today, and how vulnerable AI can be.
As we learn more about AI and AI-powered products, this could be an especially serious concern.
