IBM Chair and CEO Ginni Rometty says AI is going to change the world – but she prefers the term “augmented intelligence” to “artificial intelligence.”

Speaking to Fox Business News at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Rometty explained:

“I wish it wasn’t called artificial intelligence, augmented intelligence that is going to propel the world forward. We have to prepare because everyone’s job will change and how it’s done,” she said.  “We all have a role to play in reskilling this world. This is an important reflection point in time for companies, but for the tech industries, society at large, it is our job to steward in these new technologies and guide them safely into the world.”

IBM, which employs thousands of people across North Carolina, has made its Watson intelligence platform and AI an essential pillar for the company going forward.
