Microsoft’s chief executive has used a speech in the UK to hail cloud computing as a powerful tool that will help people transform the world.
Speaking at Microsoft’s Transform conference in London, Satya Nadella said that artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning will soon become vital parts of society but maintained that they will still be controlled and shaped by humans for our benefit.
“We are not building an AI-first world, we are building a people-first world with AI everywhere,” he told the digital-focused event in Canary Wharf on Thursday. “Ultimately, technology is in the hands of humanity. It is up to us to imagine the future and shape it using technology.”
