Microsoft Romania organized, today, October 24, at the Palace of Parliament in Bucharest, an event dedicated to IT technology: Microsoft Tech Day. Explore Connect Learn.
Microsoft Tech Day brings together important leaders of the hi-tech industry every year, to bring to the fore the two trends that define the evolution of the Romanian economic environment: innovation through technology and digital transformation. Coming to the third edition, the event brings to the business communities and IT professionals specialized speakers in software development, security, architecture and IT that will explore new technologies on application development, artificial intelligence and cyber security.
The star of the event was Brad Smith, the President of the Microsoft giant.
Brad Smith believes that the current generation is the first in human history to give computers the power to make decisions, and artificial intelligence will create new jobs, but it is difficult to predict what these jobs will be.
“In all of human history, the current generation is the first to give computers the power to make decisions. But what kind of power do we give them? We live exciting, challenging times, and people want to know what it means to give computers this power,” Smith said .
He claims that artificial intelligence will create new jobs, as has happened every time a new technology has emerged. “It is difficult to predict what these jobs will be, because at the moment we are not able to understand them. Think about the future architects could use new technologies in the design. Also, when we buy an autonomous car, there is the possibility of being accompanied by an employee explaining how to use it. All of these will be new jobs and all of these will be learned through specific disciplines, “says Microsoft President. Smith believes that we are entering a world in which every profession will need IT knowledge, and technology disciplines should be far greater than at present. “IT knowledge will help us prepare for a future supported by artificial intelligence,” said Microsoft’s president.
