Bill Gates Says AI Could Mean , the End of Search Engines. Gates recently spoke at a San Francisco tech event called AI Forward, Insider reports. He said that artificial intelligence could become advanced enough to eliminate the need for search engines or online shopping. That's because top AI firms would likely develop personal digital agents. . Whoever wins the personal agent, that's the big thing, because you will never go to a search site again, you will never go to a productivity site, you'll never go to Amazon again, Bill Gates, speaking at AI Forward. For example, a personal digital agent could "read the stuff you don't have time to read.". While Gates would like Microsoft to have a hand in developing such a technology. he said there's a 50% chance that a startup will become a leader in AI in the future. . The technology is still far from being ready for widespread use, Gates said. Gates published a letter called 'The Age of AI has Begun' in March. In it, he states that developing AI is "as fundamental as the creation of the microprocessor, the personal computer, the internet and the mobile phone."
