update summer 2021
on one of my 8 walks round tsinghua, the front entry of 1 schwarzman college thanked co-sponsors: softbank 2 maso son, hong kong ckgsb 3 ka-shing, and big fund manager 4 ray dallo- ten minutes walk away was ying lowrey's office being portal of 5 jack ma www.aliresearch.com - as i think you know after my father died the japan ambassador to dhaka arranged for 4 hour dinner conversation led by sir fazle abed on connecting 100 new universtity funders/youth-alumni as sdg collaboratrs.. i had hoped tokyo olympics would be where above leaders 1-5 plus others met for the first time and continued sir fazle's abed quest to unite alumni of 100 sdg-tech unis; i am now working on how to include new people in this story including tokyo's mayor the lady was part of browns education commissions, charles yidan tencent co-fouder who out of hong kong has become main connector of abed's legacy; beijing mayor who hosts winter olympics and co-founded schwarzman scholars; oxford's vice chancellor who chatted to both schwarzman and yidan in 2016! there are only one or two people known to me eg vincent chang and shameran abed who can be in time to get all of the above to start connecting- if you want me to copy you into conversations only focused on this challenge please say- its the most valuable/urgent connection maso son can ever make if he knows of its existence- its also a pity that the yokoi brothers dont get this- anyhow amy the world is a ten times riskier place than when we first mooced 2013 or met 2015; i cant afford trying to connect people unless they each quickly but deeply find at least one thing they continue with each other until its done; try to forgive me in saying you are no longer too young to lead/gravitate something around your superpower - but what is it you choose that to be?

Masayoshi Son, founder, chairman and CEO of Japanese media conglomerate SoftBank, speaking at the company’s Q1 earnings report, brought the market up-to-date on its Vision Fund. He explained how in SoftBank’s view computing power was expanding so rapidly that many industries, especially in technology and engineering, would be adopting Artificial Intelligence (AI).

“AI is the biggest revolution in human history. I believe human revolution equals to AI, and we are now facing such a big revolution. And I believe AI will change or will redefine all these industries, that’s how I interpret this era. So, I say the winners in AI will be winners in the future.”


Masayoshi Son said that SoftBank, and through its Vision Fund, is far from a simple investment vehicle. “We own 20-to-30 percent stakes in the best companies with the best entrepreneurs, with the best business models, with the best technology and that we create such clusters with them so that we will be able to realize this AI revolution. This is our strategy for the group.”

He added hat through SoftBank’s various innovation clusters they now have “thousands” of Robotic Process Productivity examples in the telecom sector alone. “We believe [that many] of tasks which often require 2,000 hours of work can be reduced to two hours [thanks to AI]”

He mentioned recent SoftBank investments such as NVIDIA and chip-maker ARM. “People asked why we had invested. I said at the time that we like to look 50 steps ahead,” he said.
