TOKYO -- Japanese telecommunications giant SoftBank Group, which has accumulated 2 trillion yen ($19.1 billion) over the past months, is now honing its focus on artificial intelligence, CEO Masayoshi Son said at an annual shareholders meeting on Wednesday.
"I think we are about to see the biggest paradigm shift in human history," Son said. "The Singularity is coming. Artificial intelligence will overtake human beings not just in terms of knowledge, but in terms of intelligence. That will happen this century."
