(MT Newswires) -- Bill Gates, co-founder of Microsoft, predicts that artificial intelligence (AI) will boost productivity in the world of work, including manual jobs. He argues that this increase in productivity will enrich society by allowing people to work less while having more resources at their disposal. Gates acknowledges the existence of a two-decade technology gap between developed and developing nations. He also highlights the potential of AI to address the lack of skilled workers (doctors, teachers) in education and healthcare in developing countries, such as Africa. AI could remedy this by offering personalised services in local languages.
