‘I Made Sure People Were At The Center Of Everything We Did’

Technology is evolving faster than we, and our laws, can keep up. Technology is displacing workers from their jobs, and very possibly, displacing humans as the most intelligent species on Earth. The truth, though, is that I’m a massive optimist. Let me tell you why. First, even in light of some very serious problems, I find it impossible to overstate technology’s potential for good. We know the role technology plays in empowering us, in enabling us to improve our own lives, and we’ve seen how it empowers others around the world. The democratization of technology over the past few decades has helped to drive a huge increase in human progress. And we’re just getting started. Both my company and our family’s foundation are investing in projects that use cutting-edge technologies to solve age-old problems. We’ve seen a simple banking app help families break out of the cycle of poverty. We’ve seen massive information networks help girls access education. Tiny satellites are helping us track toxic debris from wildfires. You’ve probably heard about what’s coming down the pike. Self-driving cars. Drone deliveries. But how about some real progress, like the eradication of deafness, and blindness, and paralysis? Neural implants, robotics, and AI will make all these miracles possible. When I started Dell 35 years ago, I couldn’t have imagined any of this. That’s why I made sure people were at the center of everything we did. Not technology. People.
