What Bill Gates and Other Leaders Say about Technology

Technology is a driver for economy and societal development, not a harbinger of a dystopian future, they say.

Dean Kamen:

Every once in a while, a new technology, an old problem, and a big idea turn into an innovation.

David Wong:

New technology is not good or evil in and of itself. It’s all about how people choose to use it.

Steve Jobs:

Technology is nothing. What’s important is that you have a faith in people, that they’re basically good and smart, and if you give them tools, they’ll do wonderful things with them.

Stephen Hawking:

Success in creating AI would be the biggest event in human history. Unfortunately, it might also be the last, unless we learn how to avoid the risks.

Bill Gates:

The advance of technology is based on making it fit in so that you don’t really even notice it, so it’s part of everyday life.

Daniel Bell:

Technology, like art, is a soaring exercise of the human imagination.

Bill Gates:

Technology is unlocking the innate compassion we have for our fellow human beings.

Dan Brown:

Technology is changing the way we interact as humans.

Steve Ballmer:

The number one benefit of information technology is that it empowers people to do what they want to do. It lets people be creative. It lets people be productive. It lets people learn things they didn’t think they could learn before, and so in a sense it is all about potential.

Information technology in business

Bill Gates:

Information technology and business are becoming inextricably interwoven. I don’t think anybody can talk meaningfully about one without the talking about the other.

Michael Dell:

Our business is about technology, yes. But it’s also about operations and customer relationships.

Satya Nadella:

Information technology is at the core of how you do your business and how your business model itself evolves.
