That’s right, during his participation in the World Economic Forum in Davos 2018, Sundar Pichai, CEO of Google, highlighted the importance of Artificial Intelligence. Which he claims is one of the tools that changed the history of humanity. He says will have a greater impact on humanity than fire and electricity.
In the interview with Klaus Schwab, founder of the WEF, Pichai points out. “Artificial Intelligence is probably the most important thing that humanity has ever worked on. I consider it something deeper than electricity or fire. “
He also highlighted the importance that AI will have in mitigating many of the problems that exist worldwide, such as increasing access to quality education at a lower cost and it will allow us to have clean and renewable energy at a lower price.
During the talk, the issue of fear caused by these types of new technologies came up, to which the CEO responded, “Every time you work with technology, you need to learn to take advantage of the benefits while minimizing the disadvantages.”
Schwab then asked the risk that AI implies to direct us to totalitarian states, to which Pichai clarified that it is a work at a global level that will have to be discussed in international forums such as the G7 or G20 and direct all nations to reach agreements with the intention of not militarizing technology.
The words of the CEO of Google have given much to think about, without a doubt. The truth is that each technological advance that humanity has, generates a greater advance as a society. Artificial Intelligence will be crowned as one of those technologies that will change the history of humanity. What do you think of what Sundar Pichai said, leave us your comments.
