Bill Gates makes a new prophecy, and this time at the center of the criticism of the US billionaire there is Google. In an episode of the Podcast in Good Company conducted by the CEO of the Norwegian Sovereign Fund Nicolai Tangen, the Founder of Microsoft spoke for a long time of the impact that artificial intelligence could have on traditional search engines.
He Told: "Today Google has practically all slices of the cake in the search engines sector. Microsoft has been able to move very quickly in the newly conversational IA market." Bill Gates also has additions to consider the largest innovation of this decade: "In the future, search engines will be personalized, able to understand the taste and needs of the user, overcoming the need for separate services offered by different companies technological." Although Microsoft was the first company to integrate an IA -based chatbot within its search engine, Bing, the other companies certainly did not remain with their hands.
Google herself recently presented Bard, a chatbot that will soon be integrated into many company services. The launch of the bot did not go very well, to use it mildly. The attention to the innovation that chatbots will be able to introduce within a substantially motionless market for several years is extremely high.
However, it is good not to get illusions: we still do not know what could be the effects of the IAs on the economy, society and politics.
Gates held the title of richest person in the world from 1995 to 2017, except for four years, and held it continuously from March 2014 to July 2017, with an estimated net worth of US$89.9 billion as of October 2017.
However, the July 27, 2017, and as of October 27, 2017, he was surpassed by Amazon.com founder and CEO Jeff Bezos, who at the time had an estimated net worth of US$90.6 billion. According to Forbes, as of November 17, 2022, Gates is worth an estimated $104 billion, making him the sixth richest person in the world.
After leaving Microsoft, Gates pursued a variety of philanthropic endeavors. He donated large amounts of money to various charities and scientific research projects through the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, believed to be the largest private foundation in the world.
