    Artificial intelligence will open up new business opportunities, boost economic growth and help offset the aging labor market in some countries, according to IBM CEO Arvind Krishna.

    In an interview with Nikkei, the businessman assured that although this new technology will replace humans in certain types of work, eventually AI will facilitate job creation.

    He recalled that the introduction of technologies in the past made it disappear many types of jobs, citing examples in fields such as agriculture and laundry, but mentioned that other types of jobs such as truck drivers were created.

    “We are not concerned with the crude algorithm. What we are concerned with are the risks involved in its use. We should be regulating who can use it, how they use it, instead of stopping the advancement of the technology itself,” he said.

    In late March, SpaceX, Tesla and Twitter CEO Elon Musk, along with Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, and a thousand tech experts signed a letter urging labs to “immediately pause” training of AI systems with human-competitive intelligence, arguing that “they can pose serious risks to society and humanity”.
