Amazon (AMZN) CEO Jeff Bezos said we are in the golden age of artificial intelligence 

“It has been a dream for so long, a kind of science fiction scenario, the things we’re solving with machine learning today are extraordinary.  We really are at a tipping point where the progress is accelerating.  I think we’re entering a golden age of machine learning.  We’re still along ways away from being able to do things the way humans doing things.  Human like intelligence is still pretty mysterious even to the most advanced AI research.  If you think about the way humans learn, we are incredibly data efficient.”

Amazon (AMZN) CEO Jeff Bezos selling Amazon stock to fund space exploration company

“Whenever you see me selling Amazon stock, it is to fund Blue Origin.  Funding a space company is not necessarily the highest return on invested capital investment.”

Amazon (AMZN) CEO Jeff Bezos on why he bought the Washington Post newspaper

“I’ve always believed democracy dies in darkness.  Certain institutions have an important role in making sure that there is light.  And I think the Washington Post has an important seat to do just that because it is located here in the heart of Washington DC.”

Amazon (AMZN) CEO Jeff Bezos said the phone isn’t the ideal tool to solve all our problems

“The phone is not the right solution for every problem.  It’s a good solution for many problems but not for every problem.  More progress to come.  The original inspiration for the Alexa product was the Star Trek computer.”
