I spend a lot of time thinking about the future. When deciding which book to read next, I often choose books that analyze social trends from another perspective. So when Microsoft CEO Satya
The following is the recommendation I wrote, and I hope you will like it. For the transformation of Microsoft and the whole technology industry, Satir has a lot of interesting things to share with you. For decades, I have benefited from his profound insights, and I am glad to see that anyone else has the same opportunity to learn from him now.
Later, he changed the direction of his work and turned to Microsoft's world-class search engine. After that, we interact more frequently at work. We are already behind Google (Google), and our initial search engine team is catching up. A man in Satir. He was a modest, visionary, and pragmatic man. He can not only provide insight into the strategy, but also be able to get along with the core engineer.
So when I became the chief executive of Microsoft, Satir soon put his mark on every aspect of the company, which is not surprising to me. As the title of this book shows, he did not completely break with the past: when you click on the browser,
This is a wise strategy, not only for Microsoft, but also for any company that wants to succeed in the digital age. The computer industry is more complex than ever. Nowadays, besides Microsoft, there are many large companies engaged in innovative work, such as Google, apple (Apple), Facebook (Facebook) and Amazon (Amazon). The frontiers are all over the world, not only in the United States. For most users, the personal computer (PC) is no longer the only one or the main computing device.
In spite of the rapid change in the computer industry, we are still at the beginning of the digital revolution. Take artificial intelligence as an example: think about how much time do we spend on routine activities such as daily trifles, meeting meetings, and paying bills? In the future, the artificial intelligence assistant will know that you are working, have 10 minutes of spare time, and then help you to finish the priorities in the to-do list. Artificial intelligence will make our lives more productive and creative.
Innovation will also improve many other aspects of life. This is also the most important job I have at the Gates foundation. The Gates foundation is committed to reducing the world's most serious inequalities. Digital tracking tools and gene sequencing have helped us to eliminate polio nearly, and it will become the second human disease that has been thoroughly eradicated. In countries such as Kenya and Tanzania, digital currencies allow low-income users to save, borrow and transfer for the first time. In the classroom around the United States, personalized learning software allows students to master the progress on their own and let them focus on the skills that need to be promoted most.
Of course, new technologies are bound to bring new challenges. How do we help those who are replaced by artificial intelligence assistants and robots? Will the user believe all the information provided by an AI? If the artificial intelligence assistant gives you advice on the way you work, will you accept it?
That's why the book is of great value. While facing the problem, Satir also gave a road map to the opportunity to maximize the use of technology. In addition, he also tells his story in an interesting way, and all kinds of wonderful quotations are probably beyond your imagination. The book even includes some of his favorite cricket experiences.
We should be optimistic about the future. The world is getting better and better, and the speed of progress is getting faster and faster. This is a very ideological guide that leads us to an exciting and challenging future.
