Dear Class of 2017:
Congratulations! You’ve just accomplished something I never managed to do — earn a college degree.
Between your commencement speaker and every aunt and uncle at your graduation party, I am sure you are getting a lot of advice. At the risk of piling on, I thought I would share a few thoughts.
New college graduates often ask me for career advice. I was lucky to be in my early 20s when the digital revolution was just getting underway, and Paul Allen and I had the chance to help shape it. (Which explains my lack of a college degree: I left school because we were afraid the revolution would happen without us.)
If I were starting out today and looking for the same kind of opportunity to make a big impact in the world, I would consider three fields.
One is artificial intelligence. We have only begun to tap into all the ways it will make people’s lives more productive and creative.
The second is energy, because making it clean, affordable and reliable will be essential for fighting poverty and climate change.
The third is biosciences, which are ripe with opportunities to help people live longer, healthier lives. Read more — Bill Gates
Out of curiosity, at what point would you say an oc's touching into over powered territory, And would the backstory and age of said character come into play concerning it?
