"Then there is the 10 year horizon — really far-out stuff. And for that we are investing in three big areas. One is connectivity — making sure that everyone in the world has access to the internet. This is a big deal because today only 3 of 7 billion people have access to the internet. If you live in an area where there is not a good school, the internet may be the best way to get access to a lot of education material. The same is true if there is not a good doctor — the internet may be the best way to get access to health.Mark Zuckerberg interview with Axel Springer CEO Mathias Döpfner - Business Insider
The second area is AI. We expect a lot of progress that will lead to really great things in society: reduction in car accidents from self-driving cars, better diagnoses for diseases. Better ability to precisely treat diseases will lead to greater safety and health and many other things. And the third area is this next computing platform which we believe is VR and augmented reality. So these are things I think we are going to be working on for a decade or more."
