Re: $1 Billion!
It might be hard to locate funds in the future to secure society from the ill-effects of AI in real-time. Hence, it is good that funds have already been allocated -- maybe, these funds are in perpetual bonds.

An arms race is never a good idea as it is a waste of global resources. However, the last thing that is desired is to have a single AI on the planet. There is safety in numbers and if AI (develops) decides to take over the planet then, multiple AIs would be beneficial to counter it. That is assuming AI is bad at collaboration.
