There is no aspect beyond human control, declares Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella at Davos


In a recent statement, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella expressed his fascination with the potential of Artificial Intelligence (AI) to expedite scientific progress. Disregarding concerns about AI governance, Nadella underscored that human oversight is capable of effectively regulating any technology. He emphasized the importance of proper governance for AI technologies, stating, “There is nothing that cannot be controlled or governed by humankind for better use, and this is one of the easiest and simplest technologies. What is needed is that it is governed properly, and I’m sure it will happen.”

Addressing the technology-induced divide, Nadella advocated for vigilance during his speech at the World Economic Forum Annual Meeting 2024. He discussed the recent proliferation of AI, citing platforms like ChatGPT and his reinforced belief in AI after experiencing GitHub Copilot.

Nadella also expressed keen interest in AI’s potential impact on energy transition, cancer detection, and molecular behavior. Anticipating a new quantum revolution, he highlighted AI’s potential to drive economic expansion, drawing parallels to the economic impact of the introduction of personal computers. He remarked, “What can be done about energy transition, what can be done about cancer detection, what it can do with molecule behavior. So far what we have seen is that it has brought new tools to science, but we are yet to see how it can accelerate science.”

Concluding, Nadella expressed his eagerness to witness the birth of a new quantum revolution, emphasizing the transformative potential of AI in various domains.
