Gates gives advice to young graduates

Gates gives advice to young graduates
Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates took to Twitter to offer some words of wisdom to young college graduates on Monday.

In a Twitter thread, Gates’ advice ranges from what to study to the importance of giving back to society. He even ends his “tweetstorm” on a surprisingly philosophical note, according to a global media report.

Famously a Harvard dropout, Gates begins by saying that if he were in college now, he would probably study artificial intelligence, energy, or biosciences. He calls them all “promising fields where you can make a huge impact.”

Gates adds: He no longer believes there is only one way to measure intelligence. He even admits to one of his biggest regrets.

His wife Melinda Gates gets a special mention. As does his friend Warren Buffett.

He also makes a surprising revelation about the philosophy that drives him: the idea that the world is getting better, not worse, every single day.

Written by Harvard professor Steven Pinker, The Better Angels of Our Nature attempts to explain why the world has become a progressively less, not more, violent place, despite what it may seem like when you read the news.

Gates goes on to explain why that sense of optimism is essential to recognise.
