Asking the right questions: Q&AI with Trevor Noah

This post has been republished via RSS; it originally appeared at: New blog articles in Microsoft Community Hub.

Trevor Noah, Microsoft Chief Questions Officer and renowned comedian, author, and former host The Daily Show, joined the keynote stage at the Global Nonprofit Leaders Summit with Kate Behncken, Global Head of Microsoft Philanthropies, for a conversation about social impact.


From his first childhood encounter with a PC (it was a Pentium 386!) to working with Microsoft AI for Good, Trevor meets the opportunity of technology with natural curiosity and optimism that inspires everyone to find ways to use AI to build equity, fairness, and security for people around the world.


He shares examples from the AI for Good projects he’s featured on his series “The Prompt” and talks in depth about how AI is creating a critical moment for expanding education and opportunities in developing countries. Then with his inimitable humor, he somehow manages to include buffalo wings as an example of how we should always ask ourselves, “What if I’m wrong?” 



What did you learn from Trevor Noah’s insights? What are some examples of when you’ve asked yourself, “What if I’m wrong?”
