When Bill Gates says that something’s about to change the world, you better listen. In a blog posted yesterday, Gates made his predictions for 2024 and put AI at the top of his list.

“AI is about to supercharge the innovation pipeline“ writes Gates, and forecasts that AI will accelerate the rate of new discoveries at a pace we’ve never seen before. He stresses that a lot of the work done in AI over the next year will set the stage for a massive technology boom later this decade.

Gates expects that one of the biggest impacts will be seen in new drug discovery, where AI will accelerate the pace of discovery by sifting large quantities of data at a rate that wasn’t previously possible. He outlines AI’s ability to combat antibiotic resistance as one area that he is particularly interested in.

Other predictions Gates made about AI:

  • AI has the potential to bring a personalized tutor to every student around the world.

  • High-income countries like the US are 18–24 months away from significant levels of AI use by the general population.

  • Gates believes that AI will help reduce inequities around the world by improving outcomes in health, education and other areas.

He concludes his predictions about AI by emphasizing that the best way to make AI more equitable is by focusing on tailoring products to the people who will use it around the world.
