I think much of the progress was under the radar and out of public view. OpenAI was founded in 2015 and just reached mainstream consciousness with their product launches. Also in 2015, I met people working on LLM and NLP at Google, and it appears Google was reluctant to release some of this tech but now they want to since they want to compete with OpenAI.

Also biotech and DNA sequencing tech has been improving exponentially. The cost of full genome sequencing is down to $100 from $10,000 in early 2010s and millions in early 2000s.
