Instead of destroying jobs and leaving legions of people without work, the digital revolution can open doors to unseen opportunities and industries, but only if everyone has access to the internet and the ability to use it, Melinda Gates said in a recent interview with the Associated Press. The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has joined a global initiative working to ensure frontier technologies such as artificial intelligence and virtual reality will help, not hurt the world's poorest and most vulnerable people.Q: The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation is probably best-known for its work in the health sector.... I hope the foundation is part of making sure everybody is brought into the digital ecosystem.The founder went around Africa and interviewed 3,500 people and came to realize that you see all this entrepreneurship in lots of countries, but businesses were falling behind or basically dying because they didn't have access to credit. So she realized that no traditional bank would loan these people money, even a $100 loan, $50 loan, $300 loan. The U.S. is still catching up to having digital wallets for people.
