Last week on Wednesday, Marc Benioff, Salesforce CEO warned that the coming technology division could be among those people who don’t have any access to artificial intelligence and those who have it.
At the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, Benioff claimed in a statement that AI is turning into a “new human right”, and everyone will want its access.
“Today, only a few countries and only a few companies have the very best artificial intelligence in the world,” Benioff claimed. “Those who have the artificial intelligence will be smarter, will be healthier, will be richer, and of course, you’ve seen their warfare will be significantly more advanced.”
In contrast, people who will not have access to artificial intelligence will be “weaker and poorer, less educated and sicker,” he claimed.
“We must ask ourselves, is this the kind of world we want to live in?” Benioff claimed. “This can be seen right where I live in San Francisco, where we truly have a crisis of inequality.”
Discussions have already been started about the ethics of AI and its harmful uses, for instance, in war. For answering these queries and to direct its tech use, Salesforce employed its first chief ethical and humane use officer in December.
“AI is technology like none of us have ever seen, and none of us can truly say where it’s going,” Benioff claimed. “But we do know this: Technology is never good or bad. It’s what we do with the technology that matters.”
Artificial Intelligence is not the only division the technology business is dealing with. Firms in the business are confronting a trust crisis following the mishandling of data and privacy breaches, Benioff claimed.
Benioff is getting more vocal about economic and other dissimilarities. The previous fall, he was the main follower of a campaign in San Francisco that would impose taxes on large firms to tackle the rising begging issue in the city. However, some CEOs disagreed with this measure and some did support him.
