Shanghai: Alibaba Group founder Jack Ma says that with the help of Artificial Intelligence people should learn to work only 12 hours a week. It may be possible to work only 3 days a week and 4 hours a day through advanced technology and improvement in the education system. Ma said so at the World Artificial Intelligence Conference held in Shanghai on Thursday. Earlier in April, Ma supported work for 12 hours every day and 6 days a week. He had said that those thinking of working for 8 hours are not needed. His statement was strongly condemned.
Time will be saved by technological development, life will be easier: Ma
Jack Ma gave an example of electricity and explained how technology development can provide leisure. Ma said- the power of electricity is that it gives people more time. They can go to a music or dance party in the evening. Due to Artificial Intelligence, people will have more time to enjoy.
Ma said that in the next 10-20 years, every human, country, and the government should focus on improving the education system. So, it can be ensured that our children get a job which requires working 3 days a week and 4 hours a day. If we do not change the existing education system then we will be in trouble.
Jack Ma said- I am not worried about jobs. Artificial Intelligence will not take away jobs but will help people. A computer only has a chip but, a human has a heart. Wisdom comes from the heart. The existing education system is outdated. Ma was also present on stage with Tesla CEO Elon Musk at the conference. He also supported Ma.
