Davos, January 30: Founder of Ali Baba, Jack Ma in his address at the recently concluded the World Economic summit in Davos, had warned about the threat of artificial intelligence (AI) to human beings.

The Chinese business magnate stated that only by changing education can children compete with machines and that around 800 million jobs would be lost as robots could replace them by 2030. Future will be about 'made on the internet', he added.

"The AI, big data is a threat to human beings. The AI and robots are going to kill a lot of jobs, because in the future, these will be done by machines," Ma said during the discussion.

"I think AI should support human beings. Technology should always do something that enables people, not disable people," he added.

"But we have the responsibility to have a good heart, and do something good. Make sure that everything you do is for the future," Ma told the gathering.

The chief executive of Chinese online sales giant further said "People like us have the money and resources and we should spend money on technology that enables people, empowers people and makes life better.”
