Speaking at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Nadella disproves the claims that AI would speed up wealth inequality and in its place said that it could be a very important driver of growth. “One of the things I am grounded in is the overall world GDP (gross domestic product) growth is not stellar,” he said at a panel at the event in Switzerland recently.
“It’s not like we actually have economic growth today. So we actually need technological breakthrough, we need AI,” he added.
“Our responsibility is to have the AI augment the human ingenuity and augment the human opportunity. I think that’s the opportunity in front of us and that’s what we have got to go to work on”
