Bill Gates on tropical diseases, working with Trump and Brexit

Bill Gates, Microsoft co-founder and Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation co-chairman, discussed the fifth anniversary of the London Declaration on Neglected Tropical Diseases, working with President Trump and Brexit with Bloomberg‘s Manus Cranny on Monday.

“Silicon Valley remains a huge center of innovation and stronger today in terms of digital innovation than any in time in history. What CEOs in tech companies need to wake up and think about today is the need to keep up with A.I., and how A.I. can hook up to their customers and helps them solve their problems.”
—Bill Gates, April 1, 2017

  1. Nice to see Big Bill reconfirm two central points in the current editorial thesis. Here is a couple of experts of my recent post on the subject:

    “Silicon Valley, as both a region and global mindset, is consolidating its power as the center of innovation and entrepreneurial company formation. The Silicon Valley approach to building businesses is now driving significant change in almost all major industries. Obvious examples: Skype, WhatsApp, Snap, FB Messenger (who needs a traditional telephone service?), Netflix, Amazon, Apple iTunes (Who needs Hollywood?), Uber, Airbnb, Lending Club (role models of the “crowd-driven” economy disrupting every major service industry), and Tesla (just passed Ford Motor in the market value in April of 2017, and is now the second biggest auto company in America).”

    “The third wave of the Internet is being driven by companies leveraging artificial intelligence (A.I.), machine learning and Big Data analytics to address, and actually take advantage of, the “infobesity” epidemic. There is currently a boom in new services leveraging such advancements to curate, analyze and interpret information and provide people and businesses critical insights and power never previously imagined.”
