Jack Ma: AI could enable a 12-hour work week

Posted by in category: robotics/AI

Alibaba Group chairman Jack Ma told the World Artificial Intelligence Conference in Shanghai Thursday that artificial intelligence should enable people to work 4 hours a day, 3 days a week, Bloomberg reports.

Why it matters: It’s a remarkable demonstration of Ma’s faith in AI, given he’s endorsed the Chinese tech sector’s standard “996” schedule, which consists of a 72-hour workweek: 9am to 9pm, 6 days a week.
