Marc Andreessen, co-founder of Andreessen Horowitz and one of its partners, believes artificial intelligence (AI) will make our world “warmer and nicer”.
Andreessen, known for his bullish views on technology, believes AI is already being utilized to enhance people’s lives in numerous ways, such as helping doctors diagnose diseases more accurately, driving cars autonomously or writing code.
He highlighted AI as being in its early stages, yet already showing promise as an answer to some of humanity’s biggest problems, such as climate change and poverty.
Andreessen described artificial intelligence (AI) as having the power to transform society by making us more empathetic, connected and productive.
Andreessen’s comments come at a time of rising concern about AI’s potential dangers, such as its use to develop weapons or systems biased against certain groups.
Andreessen remains confident that AI will be used for positive purposes, and that its technology can make the world a better place.
Andreessen believes AI holds immense promise for good over harm, and anticipates seeing much good come from it in future years.
