Klaus Schwab says whoever controls AI, metaverse ‘will be the master of the world’
Schwab gave a talk titled 'The State of the World' at the annual World Government Summit (WGS) in Dubai on February 13, which was held under the theme 'Shaping Future Governments.'
Artificial Intelligence, but not only Artificial Intelligence, but also the metaverse, new space technologies, and I could go on and on… synthetic biology,” Schwab said. “Our life will in ten years from now will be completely different, very much affected, and who masters those technologies – in some way – will be the master of the world.”
Schwab named three areas where transformation will take place in the coming years: economic, energy, and political transformation. Regarding the energy transition, he noted the importance of the pro-abortion Paris Climate Agreement in reaching the goal of “Net Zero,” i.e. not emitting any extra carbon into the atmosphere. Furthermore, Schwab stressed that “we have to make sure that the rule of law is not trampled with the feet” in a “fragmented world.”
