Samsung CEO Summit – Opening Remarks

Shankar Chandran, Senior Vice President and Managing Director, Samsung Catalyst Fund

Are we asking the right questions when it comes to artificial intelligence?

Setting the issues of AI in the context of Silicon Valley history—starting with the founding of Hewlett-Packard in 1938 by ‘Bill & Dave’ and the 1957 founding of Fairchild Semiconductor by the ‘Fairchildren’—Samsung CEO Summit host Shankar Chandran reminds us that technologies offer both positive achievements and unintended consequences.

Following the first six generations of technology—semiconductors, personal computers, networking, the internet, mobile, and social media—we are now in the 7th generation of technology: data and AI. And it’s important that this new generation be pursued with a deep sense of responsibility.
