I am going to be an industrialist in the student age.
At that time, I think Matsushita Masters, Mr. Honda, Mr. Morita is really too happy, they were born in a very good time.
If I was born in their time, I think I will be with dark circles, joined the electronics, automotive industry as the struggle of the crowd it. Student times, how many times I do not envy this idea
But now, my thoughts have changed, and for the time I was born in such an era that I could challenge, I think this time is really good!
6 years ago, I will hear some extreme remarks "Do you use IPHONE, you use IPAD, if you do not have two, or give up life!" Obviously, 6 years later, the world has undergone tremendous changes, There is absolutely no need to say such a thing.
From now on, there will be greater changes come
Now I have been very much looking forward, and even think that sleep is a waste. Recently, because often in the world around the flight, so sometimes even to the clear where they feel. When I opened my eyes from the bed, I was wondering if I was in the United States, or in India, where was I?
In short, really feel that they have been in a very exciting, look forward to the heart of the bang bang of the times, so sleep time is too wasteful.
Now let's get into the topic.
At the end of the 15th century, the class formed by the British subordinate aristocracy into landlords became the main force of the initial industrial capital formation.
The aristocracy has accumulated the necessary capital in the industrial revolution of the 18th to 19th centuries. Their assets are the source of funding for the new era of industrial revolution and have contributed to the birth of new technologies.
The industrial revolution transforms capital with state-of-the-art technology. The progress of science and technology redefines the enterprise.
When the venture capital and new technology overlap when it triggered a revolution. The 21st century information revolution, Softbank will play the role of the aristocracy that year.
The new technology has changed the world.
The new technology has changed the world....
Artificial intelligence is changing our lives:
Go on, Google's AlphaGO to achieve 60 consecutive victories; art, artificial intelligence can be painted; medical, artificial intelligence on the correct detection of malignant tumors than ordinary doctors increased by 50%; industrial industry, industrial robots to improve production efficiency 3 Times; real-time translation, the realization of 10 languages of the translation function.
Through artificial intelligence analysis of traffic data, the maximum optimization of the traffic system, improved by 25% of traffic congestion.
The United States Uber and China's drops have achieved a shared travel, to solve a large number of travel problems.
Through large data, artificial intelligence has been further evolved.
Softbank acquired ARM (UK Acorn Co., Ltd. designed the first low-cost RISC microprocessor) in the mobile device market share of up to 90%.
Market share shows that ARM is used in smart phones> 99%, modems> 99%, car navigator> 95%, wearable equipment> 90%
Softbank Investments OneWeb "Constellation Internet" program will provide massive Internet services through a new generation of low-orbit satellite communications connections.
It is flying over the earth flying 900 small satellites, the establishment of the ground network.

In the Internet of Things era, from mobile phones, cars to daily necessities, will all link with, and generate large amounts of data. The most important resource in the information revolution is data. Get the data in the world.
1 trillion of the bottom of the Internet of things data - large data - artificial intelligence.
Technology-specific point, super-intelligent birth
Has a super intelligent robot was born.
Robot Pepper is not just a simple operation of the machine, Pepper is evolving. If someone insists on this, then one day Pepper 's evolution will tell him: "You fool, you were me beyond!
Softbank acquired the Google Dynamics of Google Alphabet, the US-driven robot company. Is developing a dog-type robot "BigDog", which in the road is not flat conditions can still transport about 150 kg of luggage. The developed alien robot "Atlas" can avoid obstacles when walking.
The future, intelligent robots will be the same as human walking in the street, flying in the sky, swim in the sea.
Smart robots and factory assembly robots will be very different. Many people think that robots can only do mechanical work simply.
However, when "they" (robot) equipped with AI will be reborn. They can learn their own, you can understand the idea of mankind.
We should not worry about being robots beyond, but should hope that robots can go beyond humans, and they work together to change the world. AI is more intelligent than human times, whether you expect it to be coming, I think so we have a good direction to guide it!
All industries will redefine the world
It is foreseeable that the average life expectancy of the future world will reach 100 years of age.
We humans will be symbiotic with the robot.
