Kai-fu Lee to adapt to artificial intelligence

W.What jobs are safe when computers become more efficient? What if they caught up with the capabilities of the human brain in more and more areas?

Dramatic Outlook has made the rounds in recent years. And an impressive progression – when computers beat the best chess players, beat the people at Go or poker, that was in the headlines.

In fact, no one knows the exact number of jobs that are truly threatened and when. The range of skills that will be unnecessary or required in the future cannot be clearly defined, regardless of how detailed some of the studies that may appear. Of course, what is sometimes obscured, technological advancement has always been associated with many new, well-paying jobs that did not exist before.

The Four Waves of Artificial Intelligence

Kai-fu Lee saves himself from naming exact percentages. What it delivers at the Digital DLD Conference is a well-structured overview of what Artificial Intelligence (AI) can and cannot do yet – and how professionals can prepare themselves and their children.

And Kai-Fu Lee knows what he’s talking about. He has researched artificial intelligence for many years and has many years of experience as a manager at leading internet companies – he was the one who set up Google in China. He is currently the head of his Beijing-based venture capital firm and is also known for his book on the battle of artificial intelligence between the US and China.

Interview with AI star Andrew Ng: ‘The next phase of AI has just begun’

Kai-Fu Lee split the latest breakthrough in artificial intelligence into four waves. First of all, tech companies with countless users, who from their behavior have created better search engines and recommendation algorithms. Then what he calls “artificial intelligence for business”: insurance companies, for example, that can better assess and classify risks with the help of AI. Third, computer programs that are able to partially perceive and understand their environment. And fourth, and finally, a true “autonomous artificial intelligence”, that is, artificial units that can independently carry out certain activities.
