I had the chance to recently watch Larry Page’s TED Talk with Charlie Rose that was from the recent TED Conference in Vancouver.
It offered a glimpse into one of the greatest thinkers and innovators of our time. Google’s mission is to organize the world’s data and make it accessible to everyone. They are continuously trying to do this, and in turn helping the other two-thirds of the world that do not have internet experience it with internet balloons. Above all, I have a feeling that machine learning from computers will get better and better, and less clunky as it is now. Our computers will know where we are, what we need to do, and help us accomplish our goals. I know it sounds scary, like the movie Her, but it will be a reality at some point along with self driving cars. He concluded by saying “if you’re working because you want to change the world and make it better; if the company you work for is worthy of your time, why not your money as well? We just don’t think about that. I’d like for us to help out more than we are.” Which is a noble cause and more corporations should think this way. There is always a higher purpose in life and in business which should always come before profits.
I look forward to the future, do you?
