  我会花很多时间思考未来。每当决议接上去要读哪本书时,我经常抉择那些从另外一个角度剖析社会收展驱除的书。所以当微软首席执行官萨提亚·纳德拉(Satya Nadella)告知我他正在写一本对于技术未来的旧书时,我急不可待地想要读到它。因而,当他请我为这本《刷新》作序时,我便怅然批准了。

  上面便是我写的推举序,盼望您能爱好。对微软及全部科技止业的转型,萨提亚有许多有意义的事件取人人分享。数十年来,我从他的深入看法中收获颇丰,我很愉快地看到当初其他任何人皆有异样的机遇向他进修。

  推荐序

  我意识萨提亚·纳德推已有20多年了。我们首次了解是在20世纪90年月中期,当时我是微软首席执行官,他从事效劳器软件方面的工作。办事器软件在其时仍是一个刚起步的营业,我们采用了一个历久发作策略,这带来了两方面的利益:一是给公司增添了一个生长引擎,二是培育了很多新的领导者,他们现在治理着微软,个中就包含萨提亚。

  厥后,他变更工作偏向,转而打造微软世界级的搜寻引擎。这之后,我们在工作上的互动加倍频仍。我们已经落伍于谷歌(Google),我们最后的搜索引擎团队正在追逐。改变坤坤的人中就有萨提亚。他是一个谦虚、有近睹和求实的人。他既能针对策略提出有看法的题目,也能与中心工程师和谐相处。

  以是,在出任微软尾席履行卒以后,萨提亚很快就把本人的图章烙在了公司的各个方面,对此我一面也不奇异。正如本书书名所注解的,他并不与从前完全破裂:当你在阅读器上点击“刷新”按键时,页面上的一些式样仍保持稳定。但在萨提亚的引导下,微软曾经转变先前完整以Windows(“视窗”)为核心的策略。他付与公司勇敢的新任务。他老是处于一种对话状况,一直与宾户、顶尖研讨职员和下管相同交换。而相当主要的是,他在一些要害技巧上减年夜投进,好比人工智能和云计算等,这将会挨制一个齐新的微软。

  这是理智的差别,不只对微软如此,对任何念在数字时期获得胜利的公司也是如斯。计算机产业比以往任何时辰都更庞杂。时下,除微软除外,另有很多至公司在处置立异性工作,比方谷歌、苹果(Apple)、脸谱网(Facebook)和亚马逊(Amazon)等。前相沿户遍及世界各地,而不单单独在米国。对年夜多半用户来讲,小我计算机(PC)也不再是他们独一的或许道主要的计算装备。

  只管盘算机工业变更敏捷,当心我们现在仍处于数字反动的起步阶段。以人工智能为例:想想,在处置平常杂务、部署集会和付出账单等惯例运动上,我们破费了若干时光?未来,人工智能助理睬晓得你在工做、有10分钟的空余时间,而后帮助你实现待办事变中的劣前事件。野生智能将会让我们的死活更有功效和更具发明性。

  翻新借将改良生涯中的其余良多圆里。这也是我在盖茨基金会最重要的任务。盖茨基金会努力于削减世界上最重大的没有同等景象。数字逃踪对象和基果测序已辅助我们多少远毁灭脊髓灰度炎,它将成为第发布个被完全铲除的人类徐病。正在肯僧亚跟坦桑尼亚等国度,数字货泉让低支出用户第一次可能储备、假贷和转账。在米国各天的教室,特性化进修硬件可让先生们自立控制进量,让他们把留神力放到最须要晋升的技巧上。

  固然,新技术必定会带来新挑战。我们若何赞助那些被人工智能助理和机械人代替工作的人?用户会信任人工智能助理供给的贪图信息吗?假如人工智能助理在工作方法方面给你倡议,你会接收吗?

  这恰是这本书驾驶不凡的起因。在曲面困难的同时,萨提亚也对若何最大限制应用技术所带来的机会给出了一个道路图。别的,他在书中还令人着迷地报告了自己的故事,各类出色语录极可能超乎你的设想;书中乃至还包括他深爱的板球活动方面的一些领会。

  咱们应当对付将来坚持悲观。这个天下正变得越来越好,提高的速率也愈来愈快。那是一册极具思维性的领导书,引发我们迈背使人高兴、充斥挑衅的已去。

  Satya Nadella’s Guide to the Future

  I spend a lot of time thinking about the future. When I’m deciding which book to read next, I often reach for ones that offer another perspective on where society is headed. So when Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella told me that he was working on a new book about the future of technology, I couldn’t wait to read it. And when he asked me to write an introduction for Hit Refresh, I was happy to say yes.

  I hope you’ll enjoy my foreword, which I’ve shared below. Satya has a lot of interesting things to say about the transformation of both Microsoft and the tech industry at large. I’ve benefitted from his insights for decades, and I’m glad everyone else will now have the same opportunity to learn from him.

  Foreword:

  I’ve known Satya Nadella for more than twenty years. I got to know him in the mid-nineties, when I was CEO of Microsoft and he was working on our server software, which was just taking off at the time. We took a long-term approach to building the business, which had two benefits: It gave the company another growth engine, and it fostered many of the new leaders who run Microsoft today, including Satya.

  Later I worked really intensely with him when he moved over to run our efforts to build a world-class search engine. We had fallen behind Google, and our original search team had moved on. Satya was part of the group that came in to turn things around. He was humble, forward-looking, and pragmatic. He raised smart questions about our strategy. And he worked well with the hardcore engineers.

  So it was no surprise to me that once Satya became Microsoft’s CEO, he immediately put his mark on the company. As the title of this book implies, he didn’t completely break with the past—when you hit refresh on your browser, some of what’s on the page stays the same. But under Satya’s leadership, Microsoft has been able to transition away from a purely Windows-centric approach. He led the adoption of a bold new mission for the company. He is part of a constant conversation, reaching out to customers, top researchers, and executives. And, most crucially, he is making big bets on a few key technologies, like artificial intelligence and cloud computing, where Microsoft will differentiate itself.

  It is a smart approach not just for Microsoft, but for any company that wants to succeed in the digital age. The computing industry has never been more complex. Today lots of big companies besides Microsoft are doing innovative work—Google, Apple, Facebook, Amazon, and others. There are cutting-edge users all around the world, not just in the United States. The PC is no longer the only computing device, or even the main one, that most users interact with.

  Despite all this rapid change in the computing industry, we are still at the beginning of the digital revolution. Take artificial intelligence (AI) as an example. Think of all the time we spend manually organizing and performing mundane activities, from scheduling meetings to paying the bills. In the future, an AI agent will know that you are at work and have ten minutes free, and then help you accomplish something that is high on your to-do list. AI is on the verge of making our lives more productive and creative.

  Innovation will improve many other areas of life too. It’s the biggest piece of my work with the Gates Foundation, which is focused on reducing the world’s worst inequities. Digital tracking tools and genetic sequencing are helping us get achingly close to eradicating polio, which would be just the second human disease ever wiped out. In Kenya, Tanzania, and other countries, digital money is letting low-income users save, borrow, and transfer funds like never before. In classrooms across the United States, personalized-learning software allows students to move at their own pace and zero in on the skills they most need to improve.

  Of course, with every new technology, there are challenges. How do we help people whose jobs are replaced by AI agents and robots? Will users trust their AI agent with all their information? If an agent could advise you on your work style, would you want it to?

  That is what makes books like Hit Refresh so valuable. Satya has charted a course for making the most of the opportunities created by technology while also facing up to the hard questions. And he offers his own fascinating personal story,www.1442.com, more literary quotations than you might expect, and even a few lessons from his beloved game of cricket.

  We should all be optimistic about what’s to come. The world is getting better, and progress is coming faster than ever. This book is a thoughtful guide to an exciting, challenging future.
