Bill Gates Thinks AI Taking Everyone’s Jobs Could Be a Good Thing

While AI could very well upend (or even replace) sizable portions of the human workforce, Bill Gates believes that the transition will allow for at least one benefit: more free time. The billionaire argues that robots will result in a more productive society, as AI is all about efficiency and getting things done quicker.

"There will be challenges because the rate of change will be faster in these next 20 years than it’s been before," Gates said. He concedes that the government will likely be forced to rework its social safety net programs, and help displaced workers retrain for the new economy, but if done right, it will be a net positive for everyone.
