Microsoft CEO's Idea for AI

Satya Nadella, Microsoft's CEO, has recently taken to the stage to talk about AI, the future and Microsoft's direction. In terms of AI, Nadella cautions people not to celebrate things too early and his real goal of AI is to help people maximize their time - not replace people at all. Science fiction, and even the early application of AI, has not followed his idea. People think because AI can work tirelessly, it should be used instead of people. It will be interesting to see how Microsoft can help shape the future of this growing trend.

Nadella is pushing Microsoft into consumer and industrial applications of software that can make inferences about its environment. He cautioned his own company and competitors about "parlor tricks" that show AI’s power without preserving workers’ dignity.
