Best Decision Bill Gates Ever Made and Things That Makes Him Feel Powerless


Bill Gates, The richest people on the planethas shared his story and secrets through AMA (Ask Me Anything) on Reddit last Tuesday. This is the 4th AMA for Bill Gates, and it took an hour out of his day to host this with live chat generated more than 7,000 comments. During the session, Bill Gates answered mix question which some of them are tough questions and sometimes silly questions.


During his 4th AMA session, Bill Gates shared his thought about terrorist, and shows that he’s seriously sweating on terrorists. As cited from Entrepreneur, Bill Gates said “The problem of how we prevent a small group of terrorists using nuclear or biological means to kill millions is something I worry about,”. When Bill Gates was asked about a problem that makes him feel completely powerless as a billionaire, he continued :

“If Government does their best work they have a good chance of detecting it and stopping it but I don’t think it is getting enough attention and I know I can’t solve it.”

Bill Gates was also asked about everything from artificial intelligence and the Apple encryption debate, the best decision that he ever made, and even his fastest time on Minesweeper. CNN has listed the most interesting questions of Bill Gates 4th AMA session. Let’s take a look Bill Gates answers for those questions :

Would you consider marrying Melinda to be one of the top three decisions of your life?

Infossible_Bill-Gates-Best-Decision-2You are correct! I would put it at the top. Deciding to work on software was a good decision but that just crept up on me rather than being some choice.

What’s your take on the recent FBI/Apple situation? What would you do if you were Apple?

There needs to be a discussion about when the government should be able to gather information. I think very few people take the extreme view that the government should be blind to financial and communication data, but very few people think giving the government carte blanche without safeguards makes sense.

Maybe [Apple] could propose an overall plan for striking the balance between government being able to know things in some cases and having safeguards to make sure those powers are confined to appropriate cases. There is no avoiding this debate, and they could contribute to how the balance should be struck.

Some people have come out in favor of regulating artificial intelligence. What is your stance?

I haven’t seen any concrete proposal on how you would do the regulation. I think it is worth discussing because I share the view of Musk and Hawking that when a few people control a platform with extreme intelligence, it creates dangers in terms of power and eventually control.

What’s your fastest time in expert Minesweeper without editing the .ini file?

Sometimes you just get very lucky based on the configuration. I forget the exact time but I think I had a time below 10 when it was just right.
One thing that we know for sure about Bill Gates through his 4th AMA session : he is obviously a romantic man as well.
