Part II. TRANSCRIPT


2023: Year of AI


Satya Nadella: There is no doubt 2023 was the year of AI. We are no longer just talking about AI innovation in the abstract; we are seeing real product-making, deployment, and productivity gains. From breakthroughs in silicon to creation of small language models, like Orca and Phi, to Models as a Service, which is making it easier to bring the power of Cohere, Llama, Mistral, to more apps, to the latest and the best from OpenAI, and, of course, Copilot, your everyday AI companion. But, at the end of the day, (Q1) this innovation will only be useful if we build and use it responsibly, ensuring its benefits empower each of us in our careers, in our communities, and in our countries, while helping to address some of the world’s most pressing challenges. And as the year comes to a close, what makes me optimistic is seeing how people like you and your organizations are already applying AI to make a real difference. You’re expanding opportunity by increasing digital and financial inclusion, so people can improve their livelihoods. You’re helping people gain skills they need to thrive and find meaningful jobs, while promoting equity in the workplace. And you’re equipping students with new tools, both in and out of school.

deployment n. 有效利用,调动

empower v. 增加(某人的)自主权;使控制局势

equity n. 公平;公正


Quddus Pativada: This technology has the potential to completely reimagine the way every single student learns in the world.


Satya Nadella: (Q2) You’re earning trust, using AI to more quickly respond to cyberthreats, training the next generation of cybersecurity specialists, and establishing guardrails to protect people from harmful content. You’re protecting fundamental rights, making important legal information and government services more accessible.


Jugalbandi: I am a farmer and I want to know about the government scheme for farming.


Satya Nadella: Helping everyone code and create more easily, and reshaping the future of healthcare.


Novlet Mattis: (Q3) This is going to make a difference for my quality of life. It’s going to make a difference for the quality care I provide to my patients.


Satya Nadella: Finally, you’re advancing sustainability, monitoring the environment in new ways, protecting critical ecosystems, while innovating to feed our growing population, and fighting devastating effects of climate change.

ecosystem n. 生态系统

devastating adj. 破坏性极大的;毁灭性的


And, of course, we are only just getting started. Technology, including AI, is ultimately just a tool. It’s a means, not an end. And our end remains our mission to empower every person and every organization on the planet to achieve more. I look forward to how we do that in the year ahead.
