Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella said on Tuesday he hoped for global data security and privacy rules that would keep technology products and services safe. He said he looked forward to a world where there will be rules and regulations for privacy and data security, like food safety laws and drug safety laws.
“One thing I hope is that we don’t fragment, that we can, whether it’s on privacy or data security, put together a set of global rules that will allow us to both comply and make sure what we build is safe to use, ”he said during an interactive virtual session with Telangana’s Minister of Information Technology and Industry, KT Rama Rao, during Bio Asia 2021.
Pointing out that there are privacy regulations around the world, he said Europe was the first to adopt the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
“It’s spreading everywhere. Privacy is a human right. I think it’s going to be recognized and there will be other regulations that will say that when you use, in the health field, for example, data, who benefits. Ultimately, if some patient data is used, it must benefit the patient. I think the exchange of value around the data, its confidentiality, or if it is used, who in benefits are all things for which there will be rules that will be legislated. Same thing with facial recognition and same thing with the ethics of AI. “
Stating that technology is becoming ubiquitous in people’s lives, society and economy, he stressed the need for companies to create technological platforms and tools to ensure user privacy.
“We have to take responsibility for making sure that we are building for privacy, we are building for security, we are building for the ethics of AI and we are even building for internet security, because these four things are not things we can expect even for regulation. We must, even from an engineering and design ethical perspective, embed it in our hearts. We cannot afford to say that we are going to build it and we will see what breaks and fix it because this attitude is not tolerated in any other industry and should not even be in the tech sector. “
“One of the things we try to ensure is how to have design principles and engineering processes to make sure that products and services respect the privacy, security, ethics of AI as well. that fundamental Internet security, but beyond that there will be regulation, ”he added.
Responding to another question from the Minister, Nadella noted that the pandemic has generally accelerated digital transformation.
He highlighted how the pandemic and the digital response have transformed the outpatient visit to a hospital, brought workflow innovation around patients and their families, reducing the burden on frontline workers and giving doctors better tools. so they can spend more time with patients.
He said the transformation had also helped with clinical data for drug discovery. “I can’t wait to come out of the pandemic as a company that is better able to handle the next tail event because we can’t predict what the next tail event will be,” he added.
On a new way of working from home, the CEO of Microsoft said that it will bring more flexibility in terms of time and places of work.
“I think collaboration, learning and well-being are fundamentally the things that are going to transform the way we think about work while giving people more flexibility,” he said.
