After fixing Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg wants to fix tech in 2019

Mark Zuckerberg

Every year Mark Zuckerberg takes up a challenging task as his new year’s resolution. In the past he has tried visiting every state in the US, built an AI for his home and even learnt Mandarin to fulfill his yearly obligation. Last year, Zuckerberg took up the task of ‘fixing issues’ predominant in the platform that he had created. And this time around, he wants to fix technology.

The Facebook founder is back with his annual post about his resolution for the year and this year he wants to ‘host a series of discussions about the future of technology’ by the means of which he hopes to understand the ‘opportunities, the challenges, the hopes, and the anxieties’ associated with the upcoming technologies.

“There are so many big questions about the world we want to live in and technology’s place in it. Do we want technology to keep giving more people a voice, or will traditional gatekeepers control what ideas can be expressed?…How do we build technology that creates more jobs rather than just building AI to automate things people do?… And how do we keep up the pace of scientific and technological progress across fields?,” Mark Zuckerberg wrote in a post on his Facebook account.

While the announcing his yearly challenge last year, the founder of the popular social media company, might not have an idea what he was getting himself into (we all know how the year 2018 turned out for Facebook), but this time around, he definitely has a plan.

In 2019, Zuckerberg plans to hold discussions with leaders, industry experts and people the Facebook community from varying fields via his Facebook or Instagram accounts. The ultimate goal of these debates and discussions, as the Facebook founder underlines, would be to access the trade off that come with the new and emerging technologies and the future of these technologies as to where we want to go.

“So I’m going to put myself out there more than I’ve been comfortable with and engage more in some of these debates about the future, the tradeoffs we face, and where we want to go…I’m looking forward to another year of learning and personal improvement, and to discussing a lot of important questions with all of you,” he wrote in his post.
